I made it

… been a week with a clean AND organized office. In two more weeks I will have a habit and in 83 more days I will have a life style.¬† Or so “they” say.¬† Whoever “they” are :).¬† Shout to Shelley for a wonderful post yesterday.¬† Check it out here.

Any Who …

Today is turkey bingo as a fund raiser for the church.¬† What’s a turkey bingo you “not-from-here” types ask?¬† Why it is a bingo where the prizes are turkeys.¬† What is bingo?¬† I assume you knew that part first but maybe not.

Bingo is a game of chance.¬† Balls with numbers 1 to 75 twirl around in a hopper or thing-a-ma-jig-y.¬† A ball is plucked from the hopper and someone will say B 7, B 7 and if you have B 7, you dab your card or move the slider bar to cover the space.¬† My head hurts and it sounds like I am making stuff up!¬† LOL.¬† Let’s shorten this shall we cuz we got places to go and people to see.

Webster says BINGO is a game in which players mark off numbers on cards as the numbers are drawn randomly by a caller, the winner being the first person to mark off five numbers in a row or another required pattern.

We used to go to this annual event as a BIG crew.¬† Grandma S bought lunch for all of us.¬† All her kids and children-in-law, some of her grand-kids and even a great grand-kid or two.¬† After lunch we’d shop the white elephant or arts and crafts tables before playing bingo.

What is a white elephant you “not-from-here” types ask? This time directly to Webster –¬†A¬†white elephant sale¬†is a collection of used items being sold, much akin to a yard¬†sale¬†or garage¬†sale, often as a fund-raiser for a cause.¬† One man’s trash is another man’s treasure.¬† So much for the year of less.¬† I think I can abstain though.¬† I will be strong!

This year we opted to participate as it could be the end of an era.¬† Not trying to sound maudlin but one never knows.¬† Life changes and people move away and then people pass away and new traditions are made or not as the case may be.¬† We’re getting while the getting is good.¬† I feel another where’d that expression come from but more on that later.

Wishing you all a fabulous Sunday!

As always, more to come.
