Omaha, NE: Take Cover!

What started as an innocent idea from the great-grandson of one of our residents, “let’s squirt great-granny with a squirt gun”, turned into an impromptu “battle of the water guns”! At Brookestone Village’s recent Water Extravaganza, a fun photo opportunity arose with some residents and family members wearing some pretty strange sunglasses when, next thing we knew, residents decided they needed squirt guns of their own!

“Granny” decided she needed a squirt gun herself so she could return the favor to her great-grandson, while the men in the group took this as an opportunity to have a little fun…starting out with squirting an unsuspecting resident in the back of the head with the water. “Where is that coming from?” John asked, and then, as they say, the rest is history! Water guns were refilled several times as the water extravaganza spread into the crowd and the sound of laughter was heard throughout the courtyard.

Might our next “Gentlemen’s Coffee” gathering through Life Enrichment be replaced with a “Squirt Gun Showdown”? Only time will tell!

Quality Life:  We will create a living environment that radiates love, peace, spiritual contentment, dignity and safety, while encouraging personal independence.
