Monthly Message from Senior Center: January 2016

Senior CenterWe hope that you had a wonderful Christmas and that you are excited about what the New Year will bring to you and your family. There is a certain excitement about looking ahead to the future and wondering what it will bring. Perhaps it’s just me and my imagination but it sure seems like these “new year’s” come more quickly than they used to when I was a lot younger. Oh, well, the chances are slim for us to slow down the clock or turn back the “hands of time” (like “san through the hour glass, these are the Days’ of our Lives,”) so we might as well just be thankful that we have lived to see another one come.

If you are a resolutions kind of person, I hope one of yours will be to find the Center even more accessible and exciting in 2016 than it was in the past year. It is our desire to have you more involved and active in our growth as a Senior Center. As you have heard us say often over the past few months, we can only be as good as you want to make us. “Keep rolling or roll over” and we are certainly not ready to roll over, so let’s make 2016 our best one ever!!

A thought, laugh or two…

One resolution I have made, and try to always keep is this: “To rise above the little things.” (John Burroughs)

“Resolutions are simply checks that people draw on a bank where they have no account.” (Oscar Wilde)

“The waitress went over to fill the customer’s coffee cup. “Regular?” she asked. “Yes,” he said, “because I stay on a diet of fruit.”

(Church Bulletin) Ladies, don’t forget the church rummage sale. It’s a chance to get rid of those things not worth keeping around the house. Don’t forget your husbands.

Ole and Lena got married, and were driving to San Jose. Ole put his hand on Lena’s knee. She said “Ole, you can go further that that” and so Ole drove to Sacramento.

A canadian psychologist is selling a video that teaches you how to test your dog;s IQ. Here’s how it works: If you spend $12.99 for the video, your dog is smarter than you.” (Jay Leno)

CarmichaelAs a staff, we hope that your new year is filled with good health, happiness and lots of blessings.
