They look happy. They’re happy and they’re playing. They’re playing dice.
They are in California and in a nursing home.
They grew up in California and are here to play!
It smells like perfume in there.
They look pretty sharp. The one on the right has pretty hair. They have pretty dresses on.
She got her beads from her son. (Dora Mae says mmmhmm…)
They are very excited and happy.
It is in the fall. The bands are playing Mexicali Rose. Donna says it might be her mother and her aunt Daisy. We can’t figure out that big dice.
That ain’t me! They’re pretty good!
They might have 3 kids.
Maureen says their names might be Catherine and Janice or Rose and Helen.
She likes to hear that. One of these days you’re gonna miss me.
One has 3 kids and three older brothers.
They’re married and their husbands are very nice.
They are there and are winning.
Sometimes husbands let us win too.
That’s nice (giggle)
They’re having a good time. Once they’re done, they’re going home to play and sing.
If it’s on Sunday they’re going to go to church and they will go home and rest.
They’re runnin’ to the real one.
Donna begins to sing.
Florence is getting bothered that this is happening in a church. But Maureen thinks its ok. Winona says, “It’s alright if they’re not playing for money.” Jean says she doesn’t think the minister is playing. They’ll eat some cheesecake and popcorn. Their husbands have passed away and now the friends are having fun.
It turned out fine.
