Hello Bingo Ladies!

 

Any updates on AARP's plans for this now "quiet" forum?

 

I was hoping BINGO would continue maybe without the need for "human set up" like @Vexed suggested. I know you posted you had made this suggestion to @AARPTerri . Has she responded?

 

@jen43 my thoughts are with you! 🤗

 

Happy Friday @jen43 , @SassiLady , @TheSuzyQ , @Vexed and @miliannie !!!!

 

Any other folks wanting to play BINGO? If, yes, maybe we can get things moving IF enough "interest" is shown. Hmmm, maybe a "prize this time" to make things interesting. Lol, I could use a Walmart Gift card - hint, hint.

I am interested! I have been quiet the last little bit, been in much pain with my hip. Looks like I am headed for a total hip replacement soon. I would love a nice distraction with you lovely ladies. 🌹 @APassionateLife @jen43 @miliannie @SassiLady @Vexed Oooh I love prizes too. I have gift cards to donate to the cause 😀

If you have the want, time and energy to re-start Bingo I will be a faithful player until whenever the One Above advises me otherwise. 

It will be good to (digitally) visit with some of the old gang, such as but not limited to @Vexed @SassiLady @TheSuzyQ @FAYESPLACE @ladyfox58 

 @prisonnurse06 @convertiblegal @jen43

I miss you all. And Bingo too!  Have a blessed Christmas and a safe New Year

I miss you all

👈(11/29/22) Hi @miliannie :

 

Lol, you are the only one who had shown an interest. 😂🤣

 

@Vexed is active in the ROCK & ROLL FORUM with me.

 

Maybe we can start the ball rolling figuring out a FUN way to set stuff up 

 

Would be AWESOME if AARP got involved and made it part of their Game Forum.

 

Hello @AARPTeri and @AARPLynne , is this doable?

 

I would "suggest" a set up that can run WITHOUT so much human setting up. That was a lot @jen43 was doing EVERY week!!! 😱

 

Great hearing from you,

Nicole 🙂 👈

Well Nicole, your "solicitation" did come in during a busy holiday season. 

You are right about dedicated Jen who labored for many years issuing at least 20 individual bingo cards every week, then manually posting bingo numbers every day.  Although we appreciated her efforts very much, no praise could lighten her burden.

With technology so much more advanced now than ten years ago, I am surprised that AARP hasn't come up with some kind of computer generated Bingo game that we can play in a group forum format.  So much camaraderie will be generated!

Anyone who has contact with AARP organizers please to tell them this: 

As we step into retirement, many seniors become isolated with each passing year. Through a safe forum sponsored by AARP, we can re-connect with others, if only remotely and digitally. A simple daily game of Bingo that provides a needed link and a common thread can do wonders to the socially distanced ones who are too afraid of Facebook/Meta, Twitter, and other online public platforms.

👉 (11/29/22) Hi @miliannie :

 

You are correct!

 

So "maybe" your other ladies will stop by next year 2023.

 

QUESTION: Has it always been @jen43 doing it?

 

IF yes, AARP saw NO need to get involved.

 

IF no, was it ever run by AARP?

 

No rush on answering, just wondering the history.

 

Thanks,

Nicole 🙂  👈

@APassionateLife

You found the answer to your question above.

As for AARP involvement, it was known to AARP for some times that Jen would leave the demanding position. Even volunteers do retire.

Looking forward, there's a need now.

👉 (11/30/22) Hi @miliannie , IF it is meant to happen it will. At age 64, I "walk away from CLOSED DOORS" and "enter OPEN DOORS" 👌 Lol, wasted too many years "knocking on CLOSED DOORS" 😉 Anyway my dear, thank you for chatting and Happy Holidays! Nicole 🙂 👈

@APassionateLifeI forgot to insert your pseudo in my just posted message. 

Social Butterfly

Hi everyone! Hope you are all doing well. I miss y'all.  @jen43  hope you are getting stronger.

We should all still keep in touch in this topic.

 

I sent a suggestion to AARPTeri to possibly get the Arkadium Bingo game for their game section. That way Jen might like to play Bingo instead of doing it for us.  🐱 Those that wanted to join our bingo games, but didn't want to do the private message thing might play.  And many others might like a new game to play. Nothing may come of it though.

 

And we could still post in this topic threads to keep up with each other and what we do in the game.

It was just a thought.

Honored Social Butterfly

This sounds like a good idea Vexed. If Jen doesn't feel up to doing the usual Bingo game. I am praying that 'no news is good news', but also remembering what she said about no more bingo if she doesn't return the beginning of October. 😪

I love this idea!! Hope everyone is doing well. I have been worried for those in the wake of hurricane Ian. Hope you all are safe xoxo
