Turnpike Senior Center Update
By Mary Heesh

Hello everyone, from Turnpike Terrace.

We have some of our tenants in the hospital. We wish them well.

Our hearts go out to the Battisti family for their loss.

We will be having some new tenants soon.

Some of us went over to South New Milford to hear Soulfire again. They had a nice size crowd, even with the rain.

We had kids come for Halloween, dressed in costumes to trick or treat. It’s a lot of fun, and you never know who you’ll see come in. All kinds of spooky ones, and also pretty ones. The little ones are so cute. I was lucky, I had three of my great-grandsons come up, Eli, Lyam and Hunter. We had tons of candy for them. We had a lot of the tenants waiting for them.

We had lunch here on Halloween. Some of the diners dressed for it. Marsha was a clown, Ellen was a Mardi Gras queen, Kay was an Indian, Carol was a witch and her husband, a cowboy. I may have missed some (sorry). Ellen, Kay and Carol won ribbons as prizes.

Bob the bird is acting up again. He got his wings clipped and flies about three feet off the floor. He’s upset about that, because he’s usually flying up and sitting on my curtain where I can’t get him. He plays with tissues and chews it up like a mouse’s nest and throws it out the door of his cage, looks at it and chatters away and goes back in to see what else he can get into.

We had a nice group here for our soup and sandwich dinner, good food, too.

The folks from Watson Hill will be here for a sing-along. We always have a good time with them.

That’s all for now, take care.
