A Vivid Memory.

My Earliest Memory.

My earliest memory takes me back to 1934.  I was four years of age living in a foster home.  Home medical treatment was almost the only hope of recovery from any sickness back in those days.

Though I vividly remember having a very bad attack of whooping cough,   I don’t recall taking any medicine. The treatment was very basic maybe to the extreme. As soon as dawn broke I was sent outdoors to sit on a wooden box all day long. When the chill of the evening arrived I moved indoors again, finishing up sleeping on the floor with no more a single smelly blanket.

This was the time of the great depression long before the amazing medical treatment that is readily available today. However, I recovered and now at the age of eighty-one,  I certainly believe those magic words – ‘When the going gets tough the tough get going.’


A Flying Start.

Sooner or later you too will have back problems.

A very useful physio hint is not to go to bed immediately after sitting for half an hour or more -TV? Better to spend the last 15 minutes or so moving around,  maybe doing a few small chores preparing for the next day. How much better you’ll feel next morning getting off to a flying start.

Quick Money!

A guy asks a lawyer what his fee is. “I charge $50 for three questions,” the lawyer says. “That’s awfully steep, isn’t it?” the guy asks. “Yes,” the lawyer replies, “Now what’s your final question?”

There’s always a reason.

People come into your life for a reason. When someone is in your life for a REASON, it is usually to meet a need you have expressed.

They have come to assist you through a difficulty, to provide you with guidance and support, to aid you physically, emotionally or spiritually. They may seem like a godsend and they are.

True friends certainly deserve to be be respected and truly treasured.
