We start bingo Sept. 7. I hope we have a good turnout.

Start each day with a positive thought and a grateful heart.

Success is the product of backbone, not wishbone.

One of the good things about middle age is that it’s a nice change from being young.

We do not stop playing because we are old; we grow old because we stop playing.
