Who knew? Apparently AARP throws a spelling bee for the 50+ generation. It was held recently in Cheyanne, Wyoming. Really.
Wasn't the spelling bee the best part of fifth grade, and sixth grade, and seventh grade? I grew up in a Scripps-Howard town, so we participated every year. I wonder if children in this era of electronic everything enjoy it as much? The geezers surely did. The last two contestants went head to head for 30 rounds. Go, spellers! Maybe I'll see you next year.
