I must apologize for last week, I sure blew it. I’m afraid my days have become too busy and I’m having a hard time keeping up with everything.

This week was also a busy week. And next week will also be a very busy week. I do hope not to ignore you and get you the information you want.

The community Halloween party at the Bristlecone Convention Center was a big success. Lots of children in their costumes, some of which were very original.

RSVP had two meetings this last week. One on elder abuse and one on our new transportation program. The transportation program helps pay for the gas one uses to transport a senior citizen to the doctor in or out of town. This can help you with your financial obligation. If you are interested in either of these please give me a call at 775-289 –6323.

Most people do not know that Jimmy Stewart loved writing poems. Here is one called “The top step in the hotel in Junin.”

The top step in hotel Junin is mean.

Like the devil is mean.

And it lies at the top of the other steps,

So quiet, so still,  so serene.

But this top step has something quite special,

Of very ingenious device:

It’s a half an inch higher than the other steps,

A whole inch would be more precise.

And it uses this inch as a weapon.

The guess of the place to harass:

For one you reach the third floor of the hotel in Junin,

The top step trip shoe right on your ass.

Now I’ve had my share of knocks on the head,

I felt Enemy gunfire in war.

But if you have my opinion of what’s really bad,

I’ll be glad to give you the score.

Of all the degrading, and the human, main things,

That I am my life have yet seen,

The gross, most despicable one of them all

Is that top step in the hotel in Junin.
