Warmer weather is here and some of us are looking forward to spending time at the cottage or campsite or leaving to visit friends and family farther afield. Most of us are grateful to leave winter behind and to relax with a cold drink on the deck and not worry about snow and ice for a few months anyway.

Bah to winter tires!

Airdrie is hosting Seniors Week from June 5 - 11. There will be events held at our Club and at various places around the city. Most events require tickets or pre-registration, and it would be better to buy/register sooner than later as seating is limited for most events. See Myrtle Brewster (403.948.0743) or Arnold Kurz (825.733.2731) for tickets for all events, also, they are at the club on Monday, Wednesday & Thursday afternoons if you prefer to stop by.

I am including the poster of the events with this newsletter so you can see what is on offer.

The Popovich Concert on June 5 at 2pm at the Club is the first event of Seniors week and the tickets are $20 with refreshments afterwards.

The Over 50 Club is hosting a Beer Tasting afternoon on June 6 from 4:30 - 6:30 which will be run by the Seniors Week Committee. This event won’t impact any of our regular Monday club activities.

A Seniors High Tea on Thursday at the Club will offer two sittings. The first is from 11-12:30 and the second from 1:30-3. All regular club activities that day will be cancelled except Kaiser in the evening.

SUMMER ACTIVITIES: Most regular club activities will continue throughout the summer with the exception of:

Saturday Floor Curling is cancelled until September.

Keep Fit classes will not run from June 7 – 16 as the instructor is on holidays (all other dates in June are still a go) and will not be scheduled in July and August - they should be back in September.

Our regular Crib games will move to Wednesday evenings for the summer (7pm) and Friday night Crib will change to a two-handed game.

Jokes & Such:

The adult version of ‘head and shoulders, knees and toes’ is ‘wallet, glasses, keys, and phone.’

After spending 20 minutes trying to get my wife’s bra off, I’ve decided to give up! I wish I’d never put it on now.

The most terrifying moment in life is when the toilet refuses to flush at someone else’s house.

SEX AT 62 – I just took a leaflet out of my letterbox, informing me I can have sex at 62! I’m so happy, because I live at 74 … so it’s not far to walk home afterwards!!!

I would never have believed that a few weeks of uncut hair would weight 20 pounds but that’s what the scale says.

Masks are apparently the new bra … They’re uncomfortable, you only wear them in public, and when you don’t wear one everyone notices.

I see people my age mountain climbing, I feel good getting my leg through my underwear without losing my balance.

The Presbyterian church called a meeting to decide what to do about their squirrel infestation. After much prayer and consideration, they concluded that the squirrels were predestined to be there, and they should not interfere with God’s divine will.

At the Baptist church, the squirrels had taken an interest in the baptistry. The deacons met and decided to put a waterslide on the baptistry and let the squirrels drown themselves. The squirrels liked the slide and, unfortunately, knew instinctively how to swim, so twice as many squirrels showed up the following week.

The Lutheran church decided that they were not in a position to harm any of God’s creatures. So, they humanely trapped their squirrels and set them free near the Baptist church. Two weeks later, the squirrels were back when the Baptists took down the waterslide.

The Episcopalians tried a much more unique path by setting out pans of whiskey around their church in an effort to kill the squirrels with alcohol poisoning. They sadly learned how much damage a band of drunk squirrels can do.

But the Catholic church came up with a more creative strategy! They baptized all the squirrels and made them members of the church. Now they only see them at Christmas and Easter.

Not much was heard from the Jewish synagogue. They took the first squirrel and circumcised him. They haven’t seen a squirrel since.
