2018 May 23 Wednesday in Grimes Iowa

It was 65° and partly cloudy to start the day.

Today we boarded a bus at the senior center and went to the Iowa State fairgrounds for Senior Fest.

There were seventeen seats on the bus and only one small space in the back bench was empty. And that was because we were one short. Joyce didn’t go.

It is a good thing that our bus driver had a sense of humor because we kinds of gave him a bad time.

Bingo was how I passed my time. I played game after game and never won. Ella played once and walked away with a bag of goodies.

Since the Grimes center is small, we were paired with the West side center. Our theme (each center hasa different theme) was Hawaii. So leis grass skirts, Hawaiian shirts, and these way-too-small straw hat were plentiful.

For lunch we had baked chicken, potato salad, baked beans, and an orange.

Considering that there were thousands of people here, the food line moved very smoothly.

It was about 1:00 when we loaded back into the bus and headed back to Grimes.

We had a different driver for the return trip. She had never been to our building before so relied on the final turn from the passengers.

Ella an I hurried from the center to Village Inn for Pie Rush Wednesday and time with friends.

Then around 6:30 we went to Cutty’s Adult Center and played Mexican Train.
