Elaine: better. Board meeting. Church’s Chicken. Newsletter ads.

Good to see that Elaine is feeling better and stronger! She felt good enough to go to the Royal Palm Social Club Board meeting this morning. That was a great effort for her, but she handled it well. She knew she was not over the infection problem as her mind was still fuzzy, but she got through the two-hour session. She was glad to get back home, though, and she spent most of the afternoon in her recliner. Continue reading Elaine: better. Board meeting. Church’s Chicken. Newsletter ads.

Rain this morning. Social Club Board meeting. Women On The Go. Bingo.

rainfall
I call that a one-inch Arizona rainfall – the drops are one inch apart

We were pleased to hear some raindrops on our awning roof this morning. It was about 7:30 or so and I had the front door open to get the morning air, so we could hear the rain quite clearly.

The south side of our patio has a plastic lattice wall made using panels attached to the aluminum awning support frame. This provides some privacy and shade while still allowing free air flow. But we have noticed that the lattice panels are buckling with the heat and the edge of one panel has totally broken loose from its fastener screws. Aside from looking bad I was concerned that the unfastened panel could easily break in the wind. So today I used some stainless steel wire to fasten that loose edge to the post.

Board meeting. Motorhome clearing. Newsletter interview.

Elaine and I went to the Royal Palm Social Club board meeting this morning. It was a good hour spent discussing potential programs and activities for the Club. Part of the concern is to have activities that will bring income to the Club to help support its programs. There was a lively discussion on several topics. One activity that the Club voted to have is a “Share The Pot” activity at Social Club meetings and other Club events. People buy tickets and the proceeds will be split 50% to the winner, 50% to the Club. The first of these will be the Social Club meeting coming this Saturday. Continue reading Board meeting.
