Sharing some little gems of wisdom

The menu for the Luther site of the Lake County Meals program for the week of June 27, 2011 is as follows:

June 27 – Sloppy Joe, potato wedges, baked beans, mixed fruit

June 28 – Open face turkey sandwich, mashed potatoes with gravy, crrots, peaches and pears

June 29 – Smoked sausage, mac and cheese, stewed tomatoes, tossed salad, fruited Jell-o

June 30 – Spaghetti with meat sauce, italian veggies, garlic toast, tropical fruit

July 1 – Vegetable beef soup, tuna salad sandwich, cole slaw, plums

Our deepest sympathy is extended to Jean DeMaw, former Luther resident, on the passing of her only son, David.  As most of you know, Dave lived in Conneticut and Jean moved there several years ago to be near him and his family. I am not sure what happened, but it was quite sudden. Possibly a heart attack. Our thoughts and prayers are with Jean and her family during this sad time. If you would like to send Jean a card her address is as follows:

Here are some little gems worth sharing

Great truths about growing old

• Growing up is mandatory; growing old is optional

• Forget the health food. I need all the preservatives I can get.

• When you fall down, you wonder what else you can do while you’re down there.

• You’re getting old when you get the same sensation from a rocking chair that you once got from a roller coaster.

• It’s frustrating when you know all the answers but nobody bothers to ask you the questions.

• Time may be a great healer, but it’s a lousy beautician.

• Wisdom comes with age, but sometimes age comes alone.

The four stages of life

1 - You believe in Santa Claus.

2 - You don’t believe in Santa Claus.

3 - You are Santa Claus.

4 - You look like Santa Claus.

Success

At age 4, success is … not peeing in your pants.

At age 12, success is … having friends.

At age 16, success is … having a driver’s license.

At age 35, success is … having money.

At age 50, success is … having money.

At age 70, success is … having a driver’s license.

At age 75, success is … having friends.

At age 80, success is … not peeing in your pants.

Thought for the week: A father is usually more pleased to have his child look like him than act like him.

Have a great week!
