Thought provoking SAFETY IDEA provided by ALICE JONES:

SOMETHING TO TAKE TO BED WITH YOU – YOUR CAR KEYS

 

Most car keys these days have a panic button. If you hear a noise outside your home or someone in or trying to get in your house, just press the PANIC BUTTON for your car. The alarm will be set off and the horn will continue to sound until you either turn it off or the car battery dies.

 

So, your car key is a security alarm system that requires no installation. TEST IT. The alarm will go off from most everywhere inside your house and the horn will keep honking, detering further entry into your house or apt and likely causing any intruder to leave the house post haste. If your neighbors do the same thing, they’ll be alerted to call the authorities.

 

The same goes while walking to your car in a parking lot.

DAVE GILBERT

GERBER BABY * ANN TURNER COOK

 

Subject: Senior Inspirations

1. My goal for 2016 was to lose 10 pounds…only 15 to go.

2. Ate salad for dinner. Mostly croutons and tomatoes. Actually, just one big, round crouton covered with tomato sauce…and cheese. FINE, it was a pizza…I ate a pizza.

3. How to prepare tofu: #1. Throw it in the trash…#2. Grill some meat.

4. I just did a week's worth of cardio after walking into a spider web.

5. I don't mean to brag but… I finished my 14-day supply of diet food in three hours and 20 minutes.

6. A recent study has found women who carry a little extra weight live longer than men who mention it.

7. Kids today don't know how easy they have it. When I was young, I had to walk nine feet through shag carpet to change the TV channel.

8. Senility has been a smooth transition for me.

9. Remember back when we were kids and every time it was below zero out they closed school?  Me, neither.

10. I may not be that funny or athletic or good looking or smart or talented…I'm sorry, I forgot where I was going with this.

11. I love being over 70. I learn something new every day…and forget five others.

12. A thief broke into my house last night. He started searching for money…so I woke up and searched with him.

13. My dentist told me I need a crown … I said, “You bet, pour mine over rocks.”

 14. I think I'll just put an "Out of Order" sticker on my forehead and call it a day...

Did You Know? . . . there is an intersection of W. 32nd&W. 33rd in Erie?

YEP, the intersection is west of Zuck, past Rolling Meadows Lanes . . .

W. 33rd is south of W. 32nd, and goes east-west, as is normal in Erie,

 but at the east end of this short section of W. 33rd, it bends north onto W. 32nd

At 77, though my body is showing signs of aging . . . it is with great mind resistance!!!

.....while my heart still keeps beating strong!  I did have a tough health challenge a few years ago, but I am back ridin' high in the saddle now, wild 'n wooly as ever! . . . most fortunately for some fine doctors and medical science to the rescue!  

       Yea! I made it to the start of my 78th year . . . now betting on 80 or more....and who knows, maybe even 90, but hopefully only with a happy healthy quality of life!  

       Looking forward to staying connected thru the years ahead!  Wishing you each your healthy birthdays full of great memories to cherish!! 

With my warmest aloha hugs,  Mele :  )))
