RUMSEY RECORD — I realized that I have missed out in reporting the winners of the Mixed Bonspiel in Rumsey so here goes with my apologies.

The winners of the A event were the Cheryl Richen team, prize was donated from Hodge Brothers Trucking. Second in the A went to Claire Krywcun team; the third spot in the A event went to the Mike Steen team and fourth went to Curt McNaughton’s team.

Brad Nelson’s team taking 3rd and Phil McBride’s team taking fourth. In the C event, Tim Primrose’s team won over Sherri Neilson’s team, big thanks to 3DPatch Works for their donation; Stan Martin took home 3rd in the C event and Shelby Primrose’s team took home 4th. In the fourth event, Brighten Watts team stole away first spot from Rod Nelson’s team, this events prize came from the Rumsey Ag Society; 3th prize went to Travis Cawiezel’s team and fourth prize went to Justin Wolf’s team.

That wraps up the curling season for Rumsey for another year and it was a good one. Next on the Calendar for the Rumsey Ag Society is the Spring Fling on April 16. Mark your calendars for this is the date were you get a chance to purchase some really expensive desserts after a thrilling auction.

Keep in mind that there are several people in our community working towards building a Seniors’ independent long term care facility in Trochu. There are surveys available from Mel and Dariel McNaughton, Tammy and David Webster and I will have some at the library. These surveys will help in the development of the facility so that it meets the needs of the large surrounding areas of Trochu.

It’s a small news week so have a great week and hopefully, a giggle:

Amy, a blonde city girl, marries an Albertan rancher. One morning, on his way out to check the cows, the rancher says to Amy, “The vet is coming over to impregnate one of our cows today. I drove a nail into the two-by four just above the cow’s stall in the barn. You show him where the cow is when he gets here. Okay?” So the rancher leaves for the fields.

After a while the vet arrives and knocks on the front door. Amy takes him down to the barn. They walk along a long row of cows and when she sees the nail. She tells him, “This is the one, right here.” Terribly impressed by what he seemed to think just might be another dizzy blonde, the man asks, “Tell me little lady, how did you know this is the cow to be bred?”

“That’s simple by the nail over it’s stall.” Amy explained very confidently.

Then the man asks, “What’s the nail for?” She turns to walk away, and with complete confidence she says, “I guess it’s to hang your pants on.”

Have a great week!
