Around the Camp Fire
Jim and Linda Vance, Editors
Although the weather wasn’t that great, we had a fun time at Pony Soldier in May. We had 7 rigs brave the storms and Friday evening we all got together for tacos which was way cool ‘cause I hadn’t had any Mexican food since breakfast. Our guest Friday was (their names escape me) the owners of the campground. They are genuinely nice people that will do anything to make our stay comfortable. It was nice having them join us for dinner. After the meal some of our group stayed and played games and the rest went back to their campers.
We had a surprise Saturday morning. Dave and Sandra Faegler stopped by to have donuts and coffee but were too late and the donuts were all gone. You must get up early or you will starve around here.
We had the usual carry in at 6 with lots of good food. If you go away hungry it is your fault.
Dennis called the meeting to order with the Pledge of Allegiance at 6:45ish. 9 Rigs answered roll call.
Sharon read the minutes from last month and Karen made a motion to accept as read. Bonita 2nd and the motion carried.
Jim gave the treasurers report. Bob made the motion to accept and Harry 2nd. The motion carried.
There being no old business we moved on to the new stuff. Jeanette asked if we wanted to go back to The Civic Center for the Christmas party and we agreed. She will check on availability. (I got a text from her last week and we have it for the 21st of December.)
We discussed our donations to be made at the State Rally. Sharon made a motion that we make the donations and Bonita 2nd. Motion carried.
Sharon Made a motion that we also donate to Buckboard Therapeutic Riding Academy. Linda 2nd. The motion carried.
Dale suggested that we start having all our meals at noon. He pointed out that some of our members have trouble driving after dark. After much talk about it Dale made a motion to always have the meal at noon with meeting afterward with Jim 2nd. The motion carried.
With a standing ovation we said thanks to Bob and Marsha for hosting this month’s campout.
There being no further business Karen made a motion to adjourn and Wanda 2nd. Of course it carried.

GODS PLAN FOR AGING
Most seniors never get enough exercise. In His wisdom, God decreed that seniors become forgetful so they would have to search for their glasses, keys and other things thus doing more walking and God looked down and saw that it was good.
Then God saw there was another need. In His wisdom, He made seniors lose coordination so they would drop things requiring them to bend, reach & stretch. And God Looked down and saw that it was good.
Then God considered the function of bladders and Decided seniors would have additional calls of nature requiring more trips to the bathroom, thus providing more exercise. God looked down and saw that it was good.
So – if you find as you age that you are getting up and down more, remember it’s God’s will. It is all in your best interest even though you mutter under your breath.
