Pinon Hills hosts ice cream social

It's time for Pinon Hills Elementary School's 13th annual Ice Cream Social. This is an event open to the public at 6-9 p.m. May 14, and this year it will include free outdoor music from Sierra Storm Entertainment by DJ James. They will have free pizza sampling from Papa Murphy's Pizza and balloons for the kids.

Tahoe Creamery has invented a special flavor of ice cream for the event. How about this, dunk your teacher? I want in on this. New games include a toilet paper toss, a soccer kick, karaoke and a gold fish toss. They still have the theme baskets and lots of raffle prizes including a glider ride and a hot air balloon ride. Hope to see you there.

If you love cheese-filled manicotti from Olive Garden, the Pinon Hills PTO has an 8-pack for $10, frozen, ready for you to purchase 3-6 p.m. this Friday in the multipurpose room. Call Ron for more information at 315-2354.

Congratulations to Hollie Harvey for Teacher of the Year and Deborah Johnson for Classified Employee of the Year.

Working out for mothers and daughters

Mothers and daughters are enjoying working out together at Custom Fit on Johnson Lane. This is a very affordable studio gym with a specialty that "bridges the gap between medical conditions and fitness in an appropriate fashion," according to gym owner Kathy.

With most of us short on extra money the 15 visits for $45 she offers sounds pretty reasonable.

Kathy has a TRX suspension training that I thought looked particularly fun. It was like a tie down attached to a hook on the ceiling and you use your body weight to work out. They offer yoga classes and have lots of mother/daughter combos that attend regularly. There are also treadmills and weights, etc.

Call for more information and a free visit at 267-3559.

Funny Mother's Day story

Eleven years ago I sent a pink and a blue rose to my mom at Gardnerville Elementary School where she was a secretary with a note that read, "You are going to be a grandmother, again!"

She was overjoyed, but puzzled on who was having a baby.

She thought it may be my youngest sister Christy, but, no, she wasn't married. Cindy, the middle daughter, her two girls were 12 and 10. Lisa, well she has three boys ages 13, 11 and 9. No, that can't be.

She hesitantly called Christy first, Christy was shocked and replied, "Not me, Mom."

Then she called Cindy, and Cindy was like, "Yeah, right."

Then she called me and explained how she had received a delivery at work and wondered if I knew anything about it. I asked what the card said and she read it to me. I said, "Congratulations, it's true." Seven months later Jenee was born. I like to joke it took changing husbands to get my girl.

I hope you have a wonderful Mother's Day and especially to my mom who I think is the best mom in the world. Love you, Mom!
