We appreciated the retired teachers meeting on Tuesday and the entertainment they had.

There are scams everywhere!  A man at a restaurant paid for his meal with his credit card.  The bill for the meal came, he signed it and the waitress folded the receipt and passed the credit card along.  Usually, he would just take it and place it in his wallet.  Funny enough, though, he actually looked at the card and, lo and behold, it was the expired card of another person.  He called the waitress and she looked perplexed.  She took it back, apologized, and hurried back to the counter under the watchful eye of the man.  All the waitress did while walking to the counter was wave the wrong expired card to the counter cashier, and the counter cashier immediately looked down and took out the real card.  She took it back to the man with an apology.  Make sure the credit cards in your wallet are your own!

Don’t forget that the Monday night jam session band will be at the Ava Live Theater on Thursday night, June 6 beginning at 7:00.  Doors open at 6:30.

The attendance was down at our Monday night jam session this week, probably because of the thunderstorms and threat of tornadoes coming through.  We are thankful that, once again, we were spared a tornado in Ava.  Even though next Monday is a holiday, we voted to have the jam session continue.  Those that can come, go ahead and show up and bring someone with you.

Winners in the pitch tournament on Tuesday, May 21 were:  Tommy Roberts (226), Joretta Sawyer (223), Margaret Brill (219) and Ila Harris (216).  We had five tables and played five games.  Tommy, Margaret, Sue Pool and Sybil Heckendorn had high games of 52 points.  If you want in on the fun, call 683-5712 to have your name put on the list for Tuesday, June 4 at noon sharp.

The farmer is the only man in the economy who buys everything at retail, sells everything at wholesale and pays the freight both ways.  Thank you, farmers!

Until next week, have a good one!
