Residents and friends gathered in the lounge this evening to watch the K-State vs Oregon game. Some that were in attendance were: Romaine and Elsie Swanson, Carolyn Lagerberg, Maybelle Mase, Dorothy Carmichael, Joy Mansfield, Ivy Marsh, Hazel Beggs, Ivis Meitler, Maxine Hammerli, Marilyn Obermeyer and Marcella Martin. I sat with Ivis, Ivy, and Joy. Karen’s daughter and family were also here for awhile. I know I haven’t included everyone. It was a nice evening and those who attended enjoyed the gathering, but were disappointed in the outcome of the game.
Dorothy Carmichael was our cheerleader.

Karen Larsen, the Palace activities director, had a selection of Tostitos, Cheetos, drinks, dips and Russell Stover chocolates. I found a couple of caramels irresistible.
Maybe we can have similar gatherings for KU and K-State basketball games if people are interested. We can bring our own snacks and drinks as far as I’m concerned so no one is inconvenienced.
The Ducks won 35-17.
Thanks for tuning in…
