Email This Post HomeHumorWinner of the Name the Nursing Home Contest! Amy Vansant June 15, 2017 Humor 2 Comments You know you’re getting old… I bought myself for six dollars that I am so giddy about I can hardly stand it. A shoehorn. You know you’re getting old when a shoehorn sends you in to paroxysms of glee. It’s just that I was tearing my finger up every time I put on my walking sneakers and now I just sliiiide right into them. I screwed up though and should have gotten one of the ones on a stick so I didn’t even have to bend over. That might have been too much happiness all at once. There’s always Christmas. Winners for the “Name the Nursing Home” contest! You know, I hate to call it a contest. It’s more of a “what hits me as best at the moment.” I’m not sure what you would call that – a Good-Natured Suggestion Cluster? Maybe I should have a contest to name the contest! Anyway, first the runner-ups (win a free Pineapple Beach House ebook on launch). These are ones that made me laugh or that I thought would be nice real names or otherwise hit my happy bone: Karen Bewsey – Senior Sands Resort Beach Living Carrie – Honeybee Villas Debi Deason – The Runway (largely for the reasoning: NC’s state motto is “First in Flight”, so they could be on the runway heading for their last flight!) Don Vitz – The Blue Haired Lagoon Kimber Hungerman – Tide and Time Judy Johnson – Silver Shores Beach Community Amy J – Laughing Gull Haven Lori Jo – Tar Heel Terrace Lola – Duck Dowagers Elizabeth Robb – The Sandbar Lucia – Driftwood Manor And the winner: Kathy – Elder Care-o-lina I just really loved that, and it seemed funny and cute but also real enough to not be unbelievable as a real place. Congrats Kathy – you get the print book AND the ebook on release! And as always, thank you everyone for your submissions – I love reading through them!

It’s great. I saves my fingers and keeps my heels, on my feet and on my shoes, in good shape. I use it every time I put on shoes that aren’t soft slippers, sandals or Crocs. 0 likes Reply Helaine Accles June 16, 2017 Love your posts. 0 likes Reply Leave a Reply to Crystal Cancel ReplyYour email address will not be published.CommentName* Email* Website Add me to Amy Vansant's Humor Newsletter!
