I came down with the flu on Saturday. I had been to Hillside Village on Thursday with Leona Robinson to drop off some cosmetics and magazines after a dentist appointment. We went and saw Fernita Wilson, Dorothy Ashley and Bobbie Robinson. Bobbie and Dorothy were playing bingo. Bobbie won two times as we sat at their table. As we left, I felt someone pushing my wheelchair and I knew it wasn't Leona. It was Bob, the owner of Hillside Village. I hadn't seen him in a long time.
