At about 8:15 Friday morning, several women gathered at the Trigg County Senior Citizens Community Kitchen for breakfast as a prelude to a Hopkinsville Christmas shopping trip. Most of them were perfectly capable of driving themselves there and didn’t have to ride the bus there. But where’s the fun in that?

Erline Oakley said she had most of her shopping finished, but was looking forward to spending the day with everyone and trying the restaurant East Meets West, which none of the women, save senior center director Carolyn Bland, had tried before.

Virginia Burkhart showed up to eat breakfast unaware of the shopping trip, but then decided to tag along.

“You got room for one more?” she asked.

“Yeah, come on,” Bland said. “No sense in staying here when you can go shopping with a bunch of gals.”

Betty Bryant said she had most of her seasonal shopping ahead of her that day. With nine grandchildren and seven great-grandchildren to shop for, it would be quite a long day. She said she hoped she would be able to do most of it in one place.
