Who's a Senior Citizen?

Mom and I attended the Salem Valentine's dinner given to the Senior Citizens tonight. I know I might be a senior by some standards, but I was feeling pretty young tonight!

It was a nice event where the Salem youth council served the dinner. We had ham, potatoes and green beans. Mom brought half her dinner home for a second meal next week!

The event had entertainment provided by some of the youth. You know it was good if you have a banjo and a fiddle there!

Mom's friend Dean even played the piano for us. It was incredible that at 90 he could play so well. He did Have I Told You Lately that I Love You? and Springtime in the Rockies. The last song hit a particular chord, as they've been suffering through the coldest winter since 1949! There has been snow on the ground for three solid months! If they can survive another month perhaps Springtime will arrive in the Rockies this year!

Happy Valentine's Day to my sweetie, Ed, back in sunny Maryland! I miss you and wish you were here! Thanks for the virtual flowers!

  1. It's nice that a youth group sponsored the event. I have been listening to a comedy radio station in the car. One of the comedians mentioned that blacks always have fried chicken for funerals and other church events. Would it be fair to say Mormons have ham and jello?
