We thank everybody for all the stuffed animals that have been donated as prizes for the weekly bingo game. We have enough of those now, and we’re looking for more jewelry this week.

We wish a speedy recovery

to all the Doak residents who are in the hospital. Hurry up, get better and get home, we miss you.

Marcia Martin was a special guest, and prize winners were Connie Sigler, Bobbie Vetter, Cindy Montgomery, Wanda Redmond, Raylene Olinger and Mary Jane Logan.

Joke of the week

A guy walks into work and both of his ears are bandaged. His boss asks him what happened.

“I was ironing a shirt when the phone rang … and I answered the iron,” the man said.

The boss laughs and says, “Well, that explains one ear, what happened to the other?”

“After I hurt the first ear, I had to call the doctor,” the man said.
