Bridgton Health Care

Nov 20 2016

The Bridgton Health Care is just four miles from our home, and they have our ministry four times a year. The final visit for 2016 was earlier this month, and we had a fun morning. I worked alone that morning as my wife, Sue, had to bring our daughter, Rose, to rehearsal for an upcoming performance of the Nutcracker with the Maine State Ballet.  

Shows at BHC are always fun.  There's a group of members from our home church who live there now, including Pat Prentence, one of the founding members of Bridgton Alliance Church, and Earlene Proctor, a long time friend who graduated from the Baxter School for the Deaf.  Both these ladies are still very lucid and knew who I was and why I was there right away.

the show was pretty standard for that venue, and I ran into a little trouble with my diabolo when I forgot how low the ceilings were.  Actually, my best juggling routine that morning was "He's Got the Whole World in His Hands".  This is one I don't perform often, it's a contact juggling routine with clear acrylic balls to Mahalia Jackson's hit version of the classic Gospel song.  I definitely need to do it more often.

When the show was done, I loaded up the car, and was home before noon.  Very nice.
