Friday February 26, 2021 - Happenings at North Shore Living

 

In February Phillip saw his shadow.
We saw sunshine and Yvonne S. and Doris B. turn a year older. Doris shared some colorful cupcakes with us for her birthday. They were a fun treat.

Chocolate covered ants

Since we are unable to go to the Hub for lunch we had take-out brought to us by our faithful AEOA bus driver Mark. Some residents from the Wave’s household had a delicious meal of barbeque chicken, baked beans, corn bread and strawberry short cake. It reminded us of a picnic so we started talking about things we would bring on such an adventure. Of course the conversation turned to potato salad and the ingredients we put in it. Somehow we got to talking about chocolate covered ants. I looked them up on Amazon and yes they are available. Do you think anyone up here would dare eat them? We played our High Low game. Some of the ladies were really good at guessing and got through all 9 cards without missing. As our picnic was on a Monday, we headed right from lunch to Bingo because you simply can’t miss that.

Be mine valentine

Marce spent some time asking residents if they could give anyone a Valentine who would it be to and what would it say. Some of the heart felt comments were “My mother-in-law Bernadine. I miss you.” “Ruby Anderson, I miss you so much. You can never know.” ”Love to all of my children.” “Sandy, I love you.” “To my sister, I love you.” ”To my sister Christine, Love ya.” “To Carroll, Love you much.” “To my wife Audrey. Keep looking up. I will soon be there.” “To my dad. Thank you.” “I love you Ray.” “I love milk.” “To my husband Jim. Thank you for a long and happy marriage and 3 wonderful children.” “To my husband, oh how I miss you.” “Fred, come on back.” “To Amanda, I hope your chickens are doing fine.”
We received homemade Valentine’s and cookies from some wonderful ladies in our community. We had a Valentine’s and a Mardi Gras party. Some of the resident’s said they couldn’t guess some of the Mardi Gras words from our Hangman game very easily as we haven’t been to Mardi Gras. Can you guess this one? _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ .

According to the Perk we learned anyone considering a brain transplant might want to change his mind. We also learned men didn’t like giving chocolates with another man’s name on them to their girlfriends so Andrew Kanelos changed the name of his chocolates to Andes.
