EE Book Club

Send Us Your Summer Reads!

The EE Book Club will be taking a vacation until September. When we begin again in the fall and we will meet on the second Thursday of each month at 11:00 in the Ramada. 

While you are all reading up a storm this summer, we Book Club members and all other readers would appreciate it if, when you finish a FABULOUS book, you would send the book name and author to Judy Hayes and she will put it in the MMM. Now you have wonderful suggestions for excellent reads, and we can talk about them when we meet again in the fall.

Hugh Rhine and Linda Sielken will be the coordinator team for the Book Club. 

See you in the fall and READ!

Linda Sielken has some book suggestions:

The Soul of an Octopus by Sy Montgomery

Lives in Ruins - Archeologists and the Seductive Lure of Human Rubble by Marilyn Johnson

and.. if you're feeling meditative - Everyday Sacred by Sue Bender

Sahuarita Food Bank

From Linda Sielken, 908 240-1887

The Sahuarita Food Bank on La Canada (17750 S La Canada) is in desperate need of diapers and feminine sanitary products. You can drop your items off at the food bank and if they’re closed there is a bin by the front door. You can also drop your items off at my house (143 S Circulo Napa) and I will drop them off for you, or if you would like to contribute money, I will shop for you.

Thank you!

A Farmer Story

A farmer stopped by the local mechanic’s shop to have his truck fixed. They thought it might have something to do with the transmission, so they couldn’t repair it while he waited. He told the mechanics that he didn’t live far and would just walk home.

On the way home he stopped at the hardware store and bought a bucket and a gallon of paint. He then stopped by the feed store and picked up a couple of chickens and a goose. However, struggling outside the store he now had a problem ― how to carry his purchases home.

While he was scratching his head he was approached by a little old lady who told him she was lost. She asked "Can you tell me how to get to 1603 Mockingbird Lane?” The farmer replied "Well, as a matter of fact, my farm is very close to that house. I would walk you there but I can’t carry this lot."

The old lady suggested "Why don’t you do this? Put the can of paint in the bucket. Carry the bucket in one hand, put a chicken under each arm and carry the goose in your other hand."

"Why, thank you very much, that works just fine!" he said, and proceeded to walk the old girl home.

On the way he said "Let’s take my usual short cut and go down this alley. We’ll be there in no time."

The little old lady looked him over cautiously then said, "I am a lonely widow without a husband to defend me ... How do I know that when we get in the alley you won’t have your way with me?”

The farmer said with some irritation "Holy smokes, lady! I’m carrying a bucket, a gallon of paint, two chickens, and a goose. How in the world could I do that?"

The old lady replied "Set the goose down, cover him with the bucket, put the paint can on top of the bucket, and I’ll hold the chickens."
