Flat Stanley Yells BINGO!

Nana and Papa kept their promise to Grandma Great.  They promised her last week that they would take her to go play BINGO this week.  Keeping a promise is important to Nana and Papa.  Do you keep your promises?  It’s so very important that we try to follow through with what we say we’re going to do.

When they pulled up to the bingo hall with Grandma Great, Papa was not a very happy man.  He doesn’t like BINGO very much.  But, he’s a trooper and likes to make others smile; so in he went.

We bought our stack of BINGO cards and Flat Stanley helped Nana put the colored cards in the order of when each game will be played.  The first game was on the blue bingo card and the last game was on the magenta colored card.

Papa got the bingo dabbers out and began dotting all of the free spaces on the cards.  Flat Stanley liked this BINGO hall.

There were a lot of nice ladies here at the senior center.  They loved Flat Stanley and his silly ways.

He decided to entertain them while they waited for BINGO to begin.

What could be more fitting than the BINGO Song?

“B-I-N-G-O ~ B-I-N-G-O ~ B-I-N-G-O and BINGO was his name-OOOoooo,” he sang the whole song and everyone clapped along.  They loved it and some even joined in to sing with him.

Then it was time for the games to begin!

Flat Stanley helped Papa with his cards.  He didn’t like how fast the lady was calling the numbers and Papa had six cards to keep up with.  When B-2 was called, Flat Stanley shouted “BINGO!!!!”

He and Papa had been sitting on that number for what seemed an eternity; and that’s a VERY long time.

The kind man came over to double check their numbers and cleared them with a “GOOD BINGO!”

Guess what Papa won?

He won chocolates!  Now, they didn’t know he’s not supposed to have chocolates, but he loves them so much he was smiling!

When BINGO was over we went for a nice lunch at Holy Cannoli’s.  This place in Worcester makes the best sandwiches and pastries.

After a fun day, we dropped Grandma Great off at home.  She got out of the car and said, “even though I didn’t win, I still had a lot of fun!”

It was a fun day and Briana LOVED the chocolate treats when Papa opened them to share with her and the grandkids.  This made EVERYone smile with the taste of chocolate dancing on their tongues.

I hope this finds you smiling too!  Enjoy a beautiful day!

  1. I’m so happy Papa won something!! I wish Grandma Great won too!! Keeping a promise is very important to me and I have always taught my kids how important it was to jeep a promise unless something very important came up! Was the Holy Cannoli place on Grafton Street near CVS? If it that’s where you were that is in my old neighborhood! I was born and raised not far from there on Kenberma Road off of Massasoit Rd! I was around that neck of the woods today myself, because I promised my son I would stay at his house and wait for Rotmans to
    come and deliver his furniture! I’m glad you had a nice day and it certainly was a very delightful adventure! It left a smile on our faces fir sure!! Thank you Colleen!!!🤗🤗🤗😘😘

    1. It WAS the Holy Cannoli on Grafton Street. The foccacia bread sandwich I had with fresh mozzarella, basil and tomato was out of this world good! 😋 It’s fun to walk the path of our roots, and important to share these roots and values with the family. I’m glad you enjoyed this one! I wish Grandma Great had won too, but her smile was HUGE when they brought the Russell Stover’s over!

        1. You as well Irene, you as well. Enjoy your day! We’ll be in the garden with Flat Stanley today. Yeah!!! Time to get a good amount of dirt under the fingernails!
