It's that time again – birthday time

Birthday party tomorrow. Again!



Doesn’t that time come around very often the last few years? The best part about it, however, is the celebration of having safely and fairly easily put another year behind us, with not many scars to talk about.

I find that mirrors, with the passing of time, get a little off in their true “imagering” of our faces and bodies, haven’t you?

Nonetheless, let’s celebrate tomorrow as if it were our first birthday, and make HEALTHLINE and IntegraCare feel good about their sponsorship of the affair. The Band will appreciate your hand-clapping to their tunes and the door prizes and candle blowing activities will pleasure us all. Things start off at 10 a.m., so be early and don’t miss a thing – all the way through the cake and ice cream!

If you get to the center early enough, maybe you can squeeze into a broken appointment with Tricia Pilgrim, R.N., and her acupressure therapy. I know, that would be thinking that one of us, already with an appointment, couldn’t make it, and we don’t want to do that, but just in case, Tricia will be there from 9:30 a.m. to noon, so who knows what might happen?

That will leave only three days in September for the schedule, but those three days can be very eventful, if you want to take part in the Silvers (Notes and Sneakers) on Monday morning and stay for the CTSCTF board meeting at 5:30 p.m. Tuesday’s various crafting periods from 9 a.m. to 11 a.m. will keep you busy beading, jewelry-ing, paper crafting, knitting and crocheting. If you need a rest to your eyes and fingers, just move to the Range of Motion exercises with Brenda Lee. Brenda, good friend that she is, does this motion thing on both Tuesday and Thursday mornings at 11 a.m.
