Remembering When. . .

by Lola Russell

I am back. A year ago, on St. Patrick’s Day I did not have the luck of the Irish, although I was wearing a green shirt. I was at the Bellaire Fitness Center in Bossier, getting ready to compete in the Senior Olympics Bean Bag Baseball Tournament. We were lining up to have a group picture taken before starting to play.

As I stood up and tried to get in line, I stumbled and fell. One second I was very happy and ready to have a good time and the next second I was on the floor with a broken femur. It happened so fast that I do not know just what happened, but I would much rather have broken the camera as I’ve been cautioned not to do. You can always replace a camera.

Patchwork

by donna smith ammons

I have been stricken with a new malady. It’s called “old age” and it is horrible.

Years ago there was a song,” She Can’t Find Her Keys”. I can identify with that little tune so well after celebrating a recent birthday. Why am I older but still feel young? (In my heart I am only 18 or 19) One of those mysteries of the aging process, I guess.
