My Apologies

I apologize for not getting the December newsletter out to everyone in time. So, it is included along with this issue. The printing press ran out of paper. So enjoy both issues.



The Sound of Music

Friday, January 18th, Susan, Christine, Shirley and Sylvia got together in Susan's family room, and sang Karaoke. Susan sang such songs as Blueberry Hill by Fats Domino and Don't It Make Your Brown Eyes Blue by Crystal Gayle. Christine sang Material Girl by Madonna and Strawberry Wine by Deana Carter. Shirley sang Somewhere Over The Rainbow by Judy Garland and It's My Party by The Chiffons. Shirley sang Make The World Go Away by Eddie Arnold and Paper Roses. We all had a wing ding of a time.



Significant Dates:

January 22, Mike Vandall turns 40! (It's not my fault...Linda Doody leaked the information.)


Episode 1 In The ER

January 19th, James was taken to the ER for chest pains. Turns out everything is fine. He does not have a heart condition. His heart is perfectly normal. Looks like a chest wall injury which will heal in time. It only took about 4 hours to figure that one out. Most of that time was filled by the patient reading his book.





Episode 2 In The ER

Here is a tip for everyone. If you ever have to go to the ER...DO NOT USE YOUR CELL PHONES! One woman in the ER was there because her father had a stroke. Another man comes in and uses his cell phone. The woman tells him "You're not supposed to use your cell phone in the hospital" The man got pretty mad and told her to call her congressman. Apparently, the man could not read, for there were signs posted all over the ER. Thought for sure there was going to be a fist fight, such luck. Two witnesses to the incident sitting nearby, Susan and Christine were quoted as saying, "Darn...that man needed a whoopin'!"


The Family Chronicle caught news that Beverly Doody caught pneumonia and was hospitalized. News is that she is back at home, however still requiring the use of an oxygen tank. We here at The Family Chronicle send our love and hugs to Beverly and hope she is feeling better soon. Oh yeah, AND GIVE UP THE CANCER STICKS!
