Curling off to a good start in Rumsey

I hope that you found some time today to remember what November 11 stands for and all the wonderful things we have to enjoy.

I hope that you found some time today to remember what November 11 stands for and all the wonderful things we have to enjoy because of a soldier’s sacrifice.

The annual fall supper was a huge success. There were many people visiting from towns around Rumsey as well as all the locals, so that’s good news. Mary Newton reported that they fed 358 adults. Pumps up the Ag Society’s bank account for another season. The super league has started as well with 11 teams, so they will be curling every Friday with an occasional Tuesday or Sunday game thrown in the mix. Good luck to all the teams participating in that. All other curling leagues will be starting up as well. If you have a son or daughter interested in junior curling, contact Jackie and Brooke Watts for more information. Open league, seniors, ladies will all be starting as well, so they welcome all individuals to join up.

Weigh Day for the Rumsey/Rowley 4-H Beef club is this coming Sunday, so last chance to join in the fun for this year. Contact Jill and Kent Holowath at 403-368-3733 if you have a son or daughter interested.

That’s it for this week, enjoy:

A young man saw an elderly couple sitting down to lunch at McDonald’s. He noticed that they had ordered one meal, and an extra drink cup. As he watched, the gentleman carefully divided the hamburger in half, then counted out the fries, one for him, one for her, until each had half of them. Then he poured half of the soft drink into the extra cup and set that in front of his wife. The old man then began to eat, and his wife sat watching, with her hands folded in her lap.

The young man decided to ask if they would allow him to purchase another meal for them so that they didn’t have to split theirs.

The old gentleman said, “Oh no. We’ve been married 50 years, and everything has always been and will always be shared, 50/50.”

The young man then asked the wife if she was going to eat, and she replied, “It’s his turn with the teeth.”
