Follow Me to the Senior Center The End of the World Part II

Posted November 27, 2012 By Mountain Seniors

By Carl and Jo Ann Hauser
If you’re not a Bible scholar, and you’re wondering when Part I was, think lots and lots of water, arks, and rainbows. If you’re conservative, you might have thought Part II was when Obama was elected in 2008. However, if you haven’t heard, according to the Mayans, Nostradamus, and some other ancient sources, the world as we know it will end on or about December 21st this year. Being a Christian, I’m not a believer of this particular end time prediction, and there may be logical explanations for this forecast by these wannabee ancient psychics. For example, it could be the Mayans simply didn’t have time to finish their calendar. After all, they had been invaded by Aztecs, who were into human sacrifice. Read the remainder of this entry »

Notes from the Birdhouse – Holy Toledo Don’t Move

Posted November 24, 2012 By The Bird House

If you follow me, you know that I have a few dogs.  Mutt is the biggest of all three and the biggest chicken of them all.  This scaredy cat syndrome she has leads to a lot of uncontrolled barking.  My neighbors hate it and so do we.  My husband had threatened for years to buy one of those shocking dog collars for barking, but I forbade it.  All I could imagine was the ‘youtube’ video where the dude had the collar on and he barked.  Each time he barked louder and each time he was shocked with more intensity.   The poor guy was crying uncontrollable by the time he got it off.  NO WAY WAS THAT HAPPENING TO MY BABY GIRL. PERIOD. Read the remainder of this entry »

70th Wedding Anniversary

Posted November 23, 2012 By Mountain Seniors

Extraordinary things are rare, and when they come along they should be celebrated. One of the rarest things of all, especially in today’s world, are people who have been married all their lives. And when that marriage has lasted 70 years? Well, I think it deserves a standing ovation! Cloudcroft is blessed to have one such couple living in this tiny village- Randy and Gloria Kimble. Randy and Gloria were married twice, once in a civil ceremony on December 13th, 1942, after which Gloria stayed home with her parents, then again in a church ceremony on December 14th, 1942, after which she went to be with her new husband. This was not too long after a 21-year-old army private was stationed in Cuba. On this strange and exotic island (long before they were our cold-war enemies), this young private met a lovely young 18-year-old Cuban girl who kept riding her horse by him so she would be noticed.
