: : Elaine, you crack me up!!! Can't take it any more!! Feeling chest pains, left side numb, can't remember my name anymore funny!!!
: : Why do I get the feeling that several of you girls are going to be the life of the party?? With you as the ringleader?? This should be a great time. Chimney Rock is gonna ROCK for sure!!!
: : I assume you will be passing out loincloths and name tags to the
: : guys UNDER 40, and plastic pants and name tags to the people OVER
: : 40 then???? Size 34 please.....in a nice forest green color if you will....maybe with some nice porcupine quill work done on it?
: : Bill Rooks
: I really am trying to be serious today, but every time I think I've got it down, BAM!... I read these posts and I lose it!
: Okay, are you asking what provisions we will provisionally provide? Let's see, plastic pants... I called the local K-Mart and WalMart
: and inquired how much stock they normally keep. They were really very helpful, Bill. Both stores agreed to stock up on Depends, Baby Wipes, Napkins, vitamins, prune juice, Ensure, soft fruit, Dentu-Creme, seltzer, Pepto, Tums, Nyquil, Z-Z-Z- Sleeping Aids, disposable/pre-focused cameras, and other geriatric sundries. The way I figure it, the old folks will be plumb worn out after driving their motorized wheel chairs like bats out of Hades, so..... us candy stripers will organize an old folks' run. We'll do the shopping, meal planning, gift store purchasing, medication administration, and so forth.
: As to custom ordered loin cloths, well.......... I used to do a bit of quill work, but I think it would be therapeutic for Miss Marcia, Mary, Kathy, Chris, and all the other elderly women. Perhaps we could arrange a "craft day" for the ladies, and let them feel useful. Forest Green? Maybe.
: As for accommodations; Miss Marcia volunteered to gather information. Some of you folks will need to pick roommates, so think about that carefully. There will be house rules to follow, of course. I believe the place of choice is "Miss Ellie's Old Folks' Home" (they're not PC down here!).
: Okay, Bill, does that answer all your questions? Now, remember that you've asked this already. Don't go repeating yourself, ok?
: Have a really, really, really, nice day!
I will certainly brush up on my porcupine quilling techniques before June. Remember, custom loincloths require custom fittings (many of them!)...
