The Women’s Room

I wonder what kind of information the Braille imparts.

No Parking

Hmmm. A No Parking sign. Wonder what that really means.

Good to know.

Bingo Gossip

This caught my eye as I was leaving a sandwich shop on my way to the sewing guild meeting. Bingo Gossip? A whole newspaper dedicated to not just bingo, but bingo gossip? What goes on in those gaming rooms? Does TMZ know about this?

When advertising works, it works

I have a vague memory of playing bingo sometime in my life, but it’s so hazy that it has just as much chance of not being true as being true. In any case, I certainly haven’t kept up with the advances in bingo technology or gossip, so I decided that it wouldn’t hurt for me to take one issue even though I’m not a player.

Let’s peek inside Bingo Gossip, published by Missy Mouser Kemp with a monthly circulation around 20,000. (I couldn’t find a web site for Bingo Gossip, but they do have a Facebook page.)

First is an article from the editor, Missy Kemp, recommending the Black Dagger Brotherhood, a vampire fiction series, written by J.R. Ward. I am happy to read this article, as hubby loves vampire stories and I don’t think he’s familiar with this author.

Horoscopes and a few quotes follow the intro article. She prints one of my favorite quotes of all time: “Change before you have to.” ~ Jack Welch, former CEO of the General Electric Company.

I found lucky numbers, an advice column, trivia (I love trivia), jokes, crossword puzzles and brain teasers, recipes, advertisements, and — hey! — bingo calendars from all over Texas. Visit Austin, Corpus Christi, Killeen, Temple, or Harker Heights (and more) for bingo! There is still time to schedule a trip to the Austin Capitol Bingo hall (they also have their own Facebook page) on August 24th where they will be giving away a flat screen TV.

There are several mentions throughout the newspaper of computer bingo. You mean they don’t still use the little cards like they did all those years ago when I may (or may not) have played? Maybe I should check it out for myself in the interest of, you know, research.

At Trader Joe’s in Houston. Yep, when I travel to the big city, I’m all about going grocery shopping. Just one wild and crazy woman!

A sign with a pun: Planet of the Grapes; It was fresh produce all along.

Sour grapes?
