There’s a national month for everything.

National Months Calendar

And this is just a list of the health related ones!

 

Published in the Rains County Leader on November 3, 2015.

It’s true. There seems to be a national day, week, or month for almost anything you can think of. The last two weeks I’ve mentioned that November is National Caregiver Month, but November is also National Novel Writing Month. I’ve been working on, if not the great American novel, at least a project that interests me for quite a while, but I’ve only managed to get a little over 6,000 words actually written. I’ve decided to use the motivation and peer pressure of NaNoWriMo and to focus my keyboard time on getting a complete rough draft into the computer. With that in mind, here’s one more week of stories about the lighter side of aging and caregiving. (more…)

Senior Humor – Edition 22 | by Linda Brendle

He was a little concerned since she was a widow and lived alone, but nothing really seemed amiss. He pulled out one of his cards and made a quick note on the back: Revelation 3:20. He stuck the card in the crack of the door and left. (more…)

Senior Humor – Edition 19 (Lost Cars and Brain Farts) | by Linda Brendle

seniors laughing 2 041712I don’t usually write my “Senior Humor” posts this close together, but I had a story left from last week’s post, and David forwarded me a video that I just had to share.

An elderly woman called 911 to report that someone had broken into her car. She was hysterical as she explained her situation to the dispatcher.

“They’ve stolen the stereo, the steering wheel, the brake pedal and even the accelerator!”

“Stay calm,” said the dispatcher. “An officer is on the way.” (more…)
