Articles, activities for boomers & seniors
This column is dedicated to all our health field workers, drug store workers, grocery workers, postal workers, truck and delivery drivers, and all people helping to keep our communities safe, alive, and supplied during this time. You are all heroes. This is a time for reflection. Families are together for a reason. I feel that this is a time for cleansing MIND AND BODY. Let us appreciate life, and honor all the souls that have passed. Please stay safe and remember to check on any elderly neighbors you have, especially if they are alone. I want to thank my wonderful neighbors who have always been very thoughtful and helpful to my husband and me.
We seniors are especially vulnerable to health problems during this time, and we don't wish to make light of the seriousness of the current COVID-19 situation. However, we could certainly use some smiles and inspiration, so we hope you enjoy these jokes and witty sayings!
Very sincerely, Elissa Clausnitzer

I feel like my body has gotten totally out of shape, so I got my doctor’s permission to join a fitness club and start exercising. I decided to take an aerobics class for seniors. I bent, twisted, gyrated, jumped up and down, and perspired for an hour. But, by the time I got my leotards on, the class was over.
Ah, the modern days. I just saw a grandpa help a youngster who was staring into his phone to cross the street.
