Good Day Everyone,

     Hope everyone is enjoying the heat wave we have had this past week. Looks like more this week. I mentioned last week about getting ready for the upcoming season of unknown "tropical” weather and how to get ready for whatever Mother Nature decides to hand us. Well, I took my own advice and went to check out the Post generator. Good thing I did. Digger and I got two new tires, gas and thought the battery was charging! Well, the new tires were no problem, getting the gas also no problem. The electric start does not work because the battery s dead and will not charge. The pull start is fine but when Digger turned on the gas, well, tried to turn on the gas! The fuel switch broke off in his hand. Got the new part this week and the generator is up and running like a champ. Hopefully we will not need it but we are ready.


     Check out the calendar everyone. This week we are trying something new and that’s Wednesday night "Game Night”. Bring your guests and let us see what happens. This could be games of your choice and just a great opportunity to socialize and get to know other members. I believe we will have Left Right Center (LRC), and different card games. Someone mentioned Chutes and Ladders! I don’t know, the opportunities here are endless.
