Norma Stillings visited residents and attended the Resident Council at the Heart of the Ozarks Healthcare Center last Tuesday. Residents can air their concerns and complaints, make requests about what foods they want to eat, etc. Then the next month those concerns will be reviewed to see if they have been resolved satisfactorily. Norma went back Saturday morning to play the piano and visit with residents.
Norma Stillings drove to Springfield, Monday for the annual mammogram. Driving by herself, she only saw four hawks. It is necessary for safety reasons to watch the road and pay attention to the other drivers rather than look for hawks. One of Norma’s friends told her how many dead skunks they had seen on the way to church, twelve or thirteen in one morning. Counting dead skunks is not as challenging nor as much fun as counting hawks.
