WEST REST HAVEN WEENIE ROAST
They had specially made Czech sausages for their hot dogs, with chili, onions, cheese, relish and onions. Bag of chips and a bag of mothers cookies. They had a great time. Some dude played guitar and sang and was really good. He did a lot of Willie, Hank, Bob, and all the oldies country style..This all started at 5 p.m. and then at 6:30 p.m. the Shriners put on a gun fight with 6 shooters. When they shot all 6 of them guns off at once I bolted out of my chair. I knew they were going to do it, and it still scared the shit out of me. When I went up to them while they were getting ready I was videoing them and I told them I was looking for my 4th husband, they wanted to know what he looked like and I said I hadn't found him yet. One guy said does that work for you? Nope says I...sigh*...
The sweet little lady in the first picture was having problems getting into her packet of pickle relish and shoved it and me and said 'here.'...I told her I'd probably have to use my teeth, but I could get it open. She didn't care just wanted her relish. I spent all 2 hours bringing them out in their wheel chairs and getting them situated
and opening up their bags of chips and cookies and their mustard packets. Then taking them back inside and to their room. One ole dude said he wanted some water, so I got him some water and then he pointed at his pee bottle and said "I need to use that." I said that was above my pay grade and ran for a nurse. I wasn't allowed to get them into bed either. If I dropped one we'd all be screwed.
In the second picture both of the old dudes were flirting with me. I kept trying to get them to dance with me, but they wouldn't do it. I know the wife of Eddie, the one in the green shirt and said I flirted with him all the time. She said if it was ok with him it was ok with her.
Third picture is of C.W. the weenie master. Least that is what I called him, and it didn't seem to thrill him too much. I don't think ole C.W. likes me too much, but then it's hard to tell cause he's pretty fecking grumpy with everyone.
Fourth and fifth pictures are of the Gunslingers. 3 were bad guys who were cattle rustlers and 3 were the sheriff and the rancher who got rustled and a deputy. When they shot 'Jack Nance' the bad guy I said 'oh no, they shot my fourth husband.'...
I had a great time, and the old farts had a blast. The aides, nurses and helpers are wonderful with them. Kathy my x-daughter-in-law does a wonderful job as the Activity Director. I'm so proud of what she has accomplished.
So...this afternoon I'm walking to the office to check my mail and one of the tenants was waving her mail at me and yelling..so when I got up to her she said:"Are you yellowdoggranny?"...In my head I heard...Oh fuck!...I'm figuring she's going to start waving her finger and me and tell me 'how dare you, who do you think you are.'...but nooo...she's a fan. She said her son and been reading me(likes the cartoons about Palin..see I'm not the only Dem in town)and had told her about it and she had been reading it and then after a while she realized it was someone that lived in the apt. and she was thinking who could that be...and came up with me. She and her son really enjoy the blog and didn't scare her off with my military language. She likes me ...she really likes me...ha.
I have this scary feeling that more people here in West read my blog than I'm comfortable with.(maybe that explains why C.W. is pissed at me. I've drug his ass over the coals more than once about Westfest.(hes on the board)..Plus it re-posts over on Facebook and everyone I know in West can read it now..
So Mrs. Y. in #22..howdy...leave a comment so everyone can meet you...
ok..It's almost 11 and my ass is dragging. The old farts wore me out. Had a great time, but I'm ready for a nap..see ya later gators...
Oh sorry about the change in the font..it just changes on it's own.
