Lila Rider: Oak Creek/Phippsburg news for June 20


Want to thank people who have been bringing in jewelry for bingo. We sure appreciate it, and we want to keep that up — we always can use some more help in there.


We welcome Geraldine Hinkle, a Yampa resident, into the Doak Walker Care Center. She came in Tuesday. She's an old, old friend of mine. That makes six of us from South Routt.

We welcome all the new people who are coming in, and we wish best of luck to the people who were discharged to go home, we're pretty happy for them, too.


Willa Hunter's son and daughter-in-law were in Tuesday to visit with her. Frances Wither's family comes in about every day to visit with her, as does Carol Rickman's family.

Bettie Pierce's family has been in visiting with her, and Jim and Marilyn Goggin were in to see Lila Rider this week.

Jim Novak was in to visit Lila the same day, and Joanne Lombardi and Wayne Button and his wife were in visiting with Phyllis Burrowes.

Joke of the week

A golfer known for his bad temper walked into a golf pro shop and plunked down big bucks for a new set of woods.

The staff all watched to see what would happen after he used them for the first time, more than half expecting he'd come in and demand his money back.

But the next time he came in, the golfer was all smiles.

"They're the best clubs I've ever had," he said. "In fact, I've discovered I can throw them at least 40 yards farther than I could my last ones."
