So as one might imagine, there isn’t a lot of night life in Lakeview Arkansas, population 743 – wait 744 since I’ve moved here. That’s okay, that means I just cross the dam and spend my nights in Bull Shoals, population 1,940. Because Bull Shoals is where it’s at – and by “it’s” I mean the grocery store, the boat docks, the library, and the volunteer fire department.
Anyway, last Friday I ventured out for my first social outing that did not involve my Mom ( it’s okay to laugh…)
Trivia night at the VFW.
There was a $5 cover charge that went to charity one of their members actively supports, every month the charity changes, also there is a 50/50 raffle, which I did not win – but Jan who was on my team did — A ROUND OF DRINKS !!!
Yes, I was the youngest person there. Yes, there were a lot of military questions, which believe it or not surprised me. I KNOW! Marika, you were at the V.F.W. !!!! And there was one category that I called into question … CLASSIC MOVIES FROM THE SIXTIES … Were there really any classic movies made in the 60′s? Luckily for me, the gang at the V consider Elvis movies to be classics - and so do I!
I had a really good time, and my team was pretty good, in fact we were tied for first place — the last chapter was American History, and thanks to my absolutely unnatural knowledge of the Jackson Administration, we got this …
Yeah, we’ll be back on the twenty-third, and by the way, I’m brushing up on my James Buchanan.
