Hi out there, all you wonderful people.
I just got me a new walker, which I needed. Lucky me. I sure like to go out in my little pontoon boat. If you want a ride, come on over.
Once again, the Area Retirees Council did a great job with the annual luncheon. Good food, lots of drawings, good friends, lots of laughs and hugs. My daughter Mariann Anthony said the prayer. Plan to be there next year, the retirees are the best! We are all a little sassy and a little older, but that’s okay! Our thanks to all who made it to the event.
Condolences to the family of Helen Estell Cleeves at age 75. A good friend, as was her daughter Debbie.
Condolences to the family of Richard Benjamin Smith, age 78. He leaves his wife of 55 years, Arlene, who worked at LAFCU. His father-in-law was Maynard Kempf. Whenever they sent him back to Plant 2, he would bring two donuts—one for him and one for me on our break. He will be missed.
Condolences to the family of Joyce Coats, a good neighbor and wonderful friend. She sold Watkins for years and I was her best customer. She was loved by many.
We received a thank-you from the family of Claude Harris.
Travel Committee trips are on: Myrtle Beach Show trip and Charleston, South Carolina, October 1-7 and October 8-14, both leaving from Lansing.
Someone took the American flag at Chapel Hill, but I see it’s been replaced. Thanks, Dick Torgerson.

Till we meet again, keep smiling.
