LUNCH BUNCH, June 9, 2015



"And so with the sunshine, the flowers bursting into bloom, and the great bursts of leaves growing on the trees, just as things grow in fast movies, I had that familiar conviction that life was beginning over again with the summer."

~F. Scott Fitzgerald


On this beautiful 73 degree day we had twenty classmates and friends at our lunch.  It was good to see Sissy and David Roberts today.  David is thin, but still has his beautiful smile.  Please keep them both in your prayers.


Bill Rushay very kindly gave the blessing.


And then we had a lovely time chatting with each other.  We had no reports of any new illnesses with our friends.  Bill Factor and his wife will be going to Alaska in August on a fantastic trip.  Enjoy.


Bill Factor reported that his committee for our class reunion has met.  The entire weekend for the reunion will be casual dress.  The committee members are Anita Coffey, who is in charge of registration.  Donna Iden, who is in charge of decorations.  Gwen Curry Downing who will be getting a mailing out to us in the next couple of weeks.  Please try to reply promptly.  Melanie Sterling who is our treasurer.  Kinsey Tanner who is trying to work on the Tunis Farms celebration, which we can attend.  The Farm is only about a mile from Vista View.  Thanks to all of you for the work you are doing for our class.


Anita and Donna will need help on their committees.  Please call me if you are able to help out on either of these committees at 614-890-9948.


I am fortunate to have had my right eye cataract removed and now have 20/20 vision in that eye.  I can see individual leaves on the trees, brighter colors, sharper images.  The down side is seeing I have more wrinkles, sun spots, and that old, ugly varicose vein on my left leg is clearer and bigger than I thought!  I will have my left eye done this Thursday, June 11, and should only need reading glasses!  This surgery only takes about 10 minutes and is amazingly easy.


Bill Rushay is thinking about planting a "Fringetree", which I have never heard of before.  I looked it up on the WEB.  It has fringe like white blooms in the spring and early summer, grows to 10-11 feet tall, and the bloom has a perfume like smell.  The down side for me is the blue berries in the fall that drop to the ground.  Good luck on your planting, Bill.


Enjoy these summer days, and I will look forward to seeing you on July 14 at 11:30 at the Golden Corral.  Have a happy fourth of July.
