Texting for Seniors

In this age of technology, more & more "seniors" (who knows anymore where that age begins!) are getting with it and conquering text messaging. It seems they're going that way mostly because they have grandchildren (or children) who are texting them. With some discussions I've had recently with other "seniors," they say their kids or grandkids prefer texting to emails or talking on the phone. I guess maybe Facebooking comes in second, but when they're mobile, texting is it!

Today at a luncheon I attended someone handed out their business card flier with a tongue-in-cheek guide for texting seniors.

Here are a few texting shortcut gems to keep handy in case you need them:
ATD: At the Doctor's
BFF: Best Friend Farted
BTW: Bring the Wheelchair
BYOT: Bring Your Own Teeth
CBM: Covered by Medicare
CUATSC: See You at the Senior Center
DWI: Driving While Incontinent
FWB: Friend with Beta Blockers
FWIW: Forgot Where I Was
FYI: Found Your Insulin
GGPBL: Gotta Go, Pacemaker Battery Low
GHA: Got Heartburn Again
IMHO: Is My Hearing Aid On?
LMDO: Laughing My Dentures Out
LWO: Lawrence Welk's On
OMMR: On My Massage Recliner
OMSG: Oh, My! Sorry, Gas
ROFL...CGU: Rolling on the Floor Laughing...Can't Get Up!
TTYL: Talk To You Louder
WAITT: Who Am I Talking To?
WTP: Where's The Prunes?
WWNO: Walker Wheels Needed

I hope you are having a good laugh today, getting your heart rate & breathing workout, and those endorphin levels up with this one! You might want to share this with a friend so that if you end up ROFL...CGU - then at least you'll have someone to help you get back up or BTW to you!

Anyway, HAGD!
(I don't know if there's one for Have A Great Day, but thought that could be it!)

(Oh, that's Lots of Laughs, or Lots of Love - and Lo is just short for Lois!)
:-) Smiles & love 4u!

Merry Medicine for Body & Soul

I'm sure you've heard how healthful laughter is.

"A merry heart does good like medicine..." Proverbs 17:22

A good belly laugh involves your whole body - moving, breathing deeper, even shaking all over! That allows oxygen to flow in, as well as mood-lifting chemical reactions (endorphins, etc.) to take place in your body that just plain makes you feel happier and more energized.

So here's to your good health today!

You may want to bookmark this page & return often for your daily belly laugh - a great health habit to get into! And, of course, share this with your best friends! ;-)

The Groundhog Speaks Again!

It's that time of year when we who face colder weather in the winter months are ready to throw in the towel and move to  or take an extended trip to the southern more tropical climes! I know I've been wanting to, especially this year with record snow when we usually get none or very little.
In case you haven't seen the predictions for our spring weather from the predictor himself (or is it herself? Hmmm... a name like Punxsutawney Phil probably means it's a he, but you never know!)....
Well, anyway, here's the latest news clip for you. Enjoy!

No matter the weather, you'll always be warm if you hold love in your heart! Be warm!

Tired of Snow? Maybe It's YOUR Fault...

If a picture speaks a thousand words, here's one for you!

So STOP it already!

All kidding aside, isn't it amazing that God knows what we need when we need it, even if we don't THINK we need it?!!

Enjoy your blessings (even though they may be disguised) today!

Dancing Out the Last Dog Day of Summer

With the dog days of summer coming to an end, why not put your feet up and celebrate one last dog day this Labor Day?

To help you get a little more in the mood, here's a fun and amazing video you may enjoy!

Here's a thought for you to take away...
For all those things you thought were a stretch for you - or even impossible -
What could YOU do with a little practice?!!

With God nothing is impossible!
