With the winter months almost upon us,
many residents are planning to spend their
time usefully. A typical Zoom day reflects the
interests of some of our women. See the photo
spread on the next page to learn what they’ve
been up to! ZOOM
VERSE BY VICKI
Many faces in the room,
Pictures of women all on Zoom.
Different talents-strong or bold,
Ready to face a winter of cold.
There’s walkers and talkers
They’re never sitting.
Then there’s our gal
Who’s a champ at knitting.
A painter and a poet too.
Film expert and a writer so new.
Swimmer and chef in the throng.
All to the Zoom Club belong.
No particular order are their names,
Spare time playing Rummikub games.
There’s Selma, Marilyn and Nurit Israeli,
Marian, Bern and Carol Pally.
Carol, Sheila, and Chickie never forlorn,
Karen and we can’t forget Dawn.
Say hello to the lady foxes,
They’re the ones that talk in boxes.
If you think the talk is not astute
All you do is put them on mute.
Lots of meetings and greetings galore,
To keep our days from being a bore.
So let the winds gust and blow,
Let it blizzard-let it snow.
They’re be doing busy tasks,
Guess what? Without their masks!
