The senior living complex where Aunt Happy lives throws a yearly dinner for the residents and their families. The theme was a Chuckwagon BBQ with hot dogs, chicken, and ribs plus sides.
Aunt Happy made sure we were dressed properly.
There were over 300 people attending the dinner and Jim and I stood in line for quite awhile to get our food. Jim handled two plates because we left Aunt Happy at the table. Nobody went hungry with all the food available. Jim tracked down the ice cream for dessert.
We also had entertainment while we ate. A cowboy singer and his horse, Dusty. That’s right, the horse was in the dining room with us and everyone from the youngest to the oldest loved him.
They have been entertaining around the valley for 15 years and Dusty was not bothered by anything. The wheelchairs, the walkers, the noise, the kids – nothing made him nervous at all.
They also had a horse and carriage out front for anyone who wanted to take a ride around the buildings. Forgot to get a picture of him. Not sure many of the residents took a ride, but I’m sure the little ones had fun.
After eating, Happy was ready to go back to her apartment. We took her home and she informed us she was ready to get into her pajamas which meant it was time for us to leave. I’m glad we were here to share this time with her.
