Seniors Situation Room by Dawn Ford May Flowers! Spring is Here & Tiger Tales! 052219

Poets call this the ‘Merry Month of May’. Hasn’t been too ‘merry’ yet with rain and cold damp winds sometimes. But, at least it is Spring.

A friend is all thrilled because her crocuses and irises are popping up through the ground and there are flowering trees with pink and white blossoms.

The grass is that wonderful fresh green you only see in the spring and there are so many different shades of green and yellow to the budding leaves on trees and bushes. It will be warmer soon and then we will be much ‘merrier’.

I love this photo of
my brother Ron Herrington in front of blossoming trees.

Here is a photo sent in by a reader of some swimmers at the Anderson Ferry, East Front of Cornwall, year unknown.

Look at the bathing suits. The lady on the right may be wearing a bathing cap – hard to tell.

The gentleman said that it is a picture of the landing near Doyle’s Marina on Montreal Road for the ferry to Cornwall Island both of which are no longer there.

Thanks so much for sharing the photo with us.

When I get the latest newsletter it is always a job to select one of the articles because each page is filled with amazing stories of hope, love and joy.

Always there are wonderful photos and stories of children, staff and volunteers and all their activities

Here is one article
from the March Newsletter:

The newsletters
always close with a wonderful inspirational quote from Rabindranath

“Let me light my lamp, says the star And never debate if it will dispel the dark.”

Rabindranath Tagore

In a recent newsletter from Everything Zoomer ( http:// www.everythingzoomer.comhealth/2019/04/11/per-healthy-aging/?) it states that 88% of pet owners seem to feel that their pets help them enjoy life, according to a recent poll by researchers at the University of Michigan who surveyed 2,051 adults nationally , aged 50 – 80 to see if pets contribute to healthy aging.

The article also reported that 60% said that having a pet helped them cope with their own emotional and physical problems including taking their minds off their pain.

42% of people who don’t have pets said it was because they didn’t want to be tied down.

So glad I have my
Tiger cat…just a joy!!

In this photo Tiger is giving himself a bath.

He licks his front paw many times and then up comes the hind leg and he washes it over and over. Quite a ritual.

I love to watch him lick his paw and then wash his ears and face with it. He is so engrossed in doing it but don’t anyone dare bother him or he gives a nasty look that would stop a train. So cute.

Here are a few puns
from a friend:

Venison for dinner
again? Oh deer!!

How does Moses make
tea? Hebrews it.

England has no
kidney bank but it does have a Liverpool.

I tried to catch
some fog but I mist it.

They told me I had
type A blood but it was a Typo.

I changed my iPod’s
name to Titanic. It’s syncing now.

Jokes about German
Sausage are Wurst.

I stayed up all
night to see where the sun went and then it dawned on me.

Velcro – what a rip

Why were the Indians
here first? They had reservations.

I’m reading a book
about anti-gravity. I can’t put it down.

Have a good week, Dawn
