J 4 fro he, I I:II_IL  r-I IJ ITOp News from Hilltop Care Center in By Cathy Schmit Hi, folks! It&apos;s that time again to let you know what's been gohag on here. We're all waiting for the weather to get a little cooler, the humidity to go down. We've had some pretty hot and humid days lately, and no rain to give us a lit- de moisture. The way it's been with some places, it rains so much that people are flooded out and other places are bone dry. We need rain before it freezes so it will soak into the ground. By the time this is pub- lished, who knows what we will get or have had or will be getting. A few of the residents have been busy in crafts, painting some figures and getting them ready for the fall craft sale. They all enjoy painting helping out and visiting with each other. Then we have a baking group that meets every-other week to bake cookies - or whatever the activity person has up her sleeve for them to stir up. Everyone enjoys Maynard Mathe and his music and singing. It's always a nice break in the week to hear some good music. We also love to see his buddy Roger who comes along, too. We had planned one day to go to the goat farm, but the weath- er wasn't too promising for us to go out. So that was canceled. Hopefully we'll be able to go an- other day. The folks have a lot of fun when they play the horse racing game. They do a lot of laughing and cheering when their horse wins. It's a very exciting game. The residents have had some re- ally nice days to go outside, sit around and use our new out- door furniture of tables, chairs and umbrellas. Very nice fumi- ture. We celebrated all the August birthdays with cake and ice cream in honor of them. There haven't been as many birthdays this summer as there are other months. Well, dear friends, I will sign off for this time. Enjoy the last days of summer, and cheer for the Twins and wave your homer hankie for them - we are. So, 'ill next time, take care, stay well and pray for peace in this trou- bled world. I guess Ole has a few words to tell you... Ole was visiting at the home of his friend, Lars, who treated Ole to a slice of bread With. Lim- burger cheese spread'on it. Ole asked, "How do you make dis Limburger cheese?" Lars an- swered, "You just take a bucket of milk and hang it in da out- house for t'ree weeks." So, the next time Lars went to Ole and Lena's house, Ole said he had some Limburger cheese for him. Lars tried it on a slice of bread and immediately made a face. "Vat is dis stuff, Ole?" asked Lars. "Lirnburger cheese," said Ole. "I made it just like you said: I took a bucket of manure and hung it in da milk house for t'ree veeks." MATHPOWER Al;ebra Ileornetry Calculus. Call 1-800-97NACME.
