Keep reading until the jokes, you won’t regret it

Well, prepare your campers and your ball gloves, because the Rumsey Sports Days are ready to get going this weekend.

Well, prepare your campers and your ball gloves, because the Rumsey Sports Days are ready to get going this weekend. The first game will be Friday night and continue on all weekend long with lots of other things to see and do. There will be a pancake breakfast both Saturday and Sunday morning. A delicious roast beef supper on Saturday night at the hall with a dance to follow at the Agriplex. The concession will be run by the Grad class of 2015, so make sure you give them some support as well. There is even a hint of rain in the forecast and what is a ball tournament without a bit of rain, just kidding.

I do hope for some rain before this weekend because it is getting awfully dry out there. I know most everyone (including us) have their hay cut and in the process of baling it up but, boy, are things turning brown quickly.

Elaine Weisse was happy to pass on to the community that their son, Paul and his wife, Karen have given birth to a beautiful little girl on June 26. She weighed in at 6 lbs 4 oz.; just right. June 26 also marks Elaine and Warrens’ 38th anniversary. This will bring their grandchild count to a total of nine, but is only their second granddaughter, so the boys still rule. I would say that they really got their money’s worth in grandchildren out of their original three. Congratulations, Elaine and Warren, and Paul and Karen.

The Rumsey Ag Society will be passing out farm safety kits at the Sports Days because of a grant they received from the provincial government and our tax dollars. This grant is a farm safety and youth development safety program to promote safety on the farm. There will be safety glasses, ear plugs, eye wash bottles in each kit. I think I overused the word ‘safety’ in this paragraph, but you get the point, right? If you don’t pick one at the sports days, stop in at the library to get one.

The ag society members are calling on all community members to pitch in on the removal of shingles from the curling rink roof and strapping starting Monday, July 28. Every hour of volunteer time counts as dollars towards the grant that the ag society has already received, so it is important that anyone who can spare an hour or two would be greatly appreciated. The contractor will start the following week to put up the tin so things will come together quickly. Call Kent for more information at 403-368-3733.

I am happy to report that Gwen Hampton is now home with her family enjoying the farm life; so glad to have her back in the community.

I would also like to extend my prayers to Tom Anderson and Doris Cawiezel as they begin their journey toward healing. You have the whole community behind you.

Angie Walker and Joe VanStraten would like to extend an invitation to all the community to their wedding dance on Saturday, July 26, so mark your calendars for this.

My jokes of the week are, of course, centered around baseball: so enjoy: One day, the Devil challenged the Lord to a baseball game. Smiling the Lord proclaimed, “You don’t have a chance; I have Babe Ruth, Mickey Mantle, and all the greatest players up here”. “Yes”, snickered the devil, “but I have all the umpires.”

How about this one: A man walks into a bar with a dog. The bartender says, “You can’t bring that dog in here.” “You don’t understand,” says the man. “This is no regular dog, he can talk.” “Listen, pal,” says the bartender. “If that dog can talk, I’ll give you a hundred bucks. “The man puts the dog on a stool, and asks him, “What’s on top of a house?” “Roof!” replies the dog. “Right. And what’s on the outside of a tree?” “Bark!” says the dog. “And who’s the greatest baseball player of all time?” the dog says, “Ruth!” “I guess you’ve heard enough,” says the man. “I’ll take the hundred  in twenties.” The bartender is furious. “Listen, pal,” he says, “get out of here before I belt you.” As soon as they’re on the street, the dog turns to the man and says, “Do you think I should have said ‘DiMaggio’?”

Have a great week.
