[ t i Seniors C4 - THE JOURNAL, Thursday, August 26, 2010 I was fluoroscoped and cys- toscoped, My ageing frame displayed, upon an ice cold Christine's poem It seems my powers of observation are slipping away. I don't pick up on things as well as I used to. For example, I just noticed that my Love Line column runs on the page dedicated to Senior Citizens and precisely under those words. I've always thought my "stuff" would appeal to folks of all ages if they got around to reading it, but now I suspect most of my readers are of the more seasoned group. So today, let me share a poem my cousin, Christine sent me a few years ago that you might identify with. A Senior Citizen's Lament Thought I'd let my doctor check me 'Cause I didn't feel quite right. All those aches and pains annoyed me, And I couldn't sleep at night. He could find no real disor- der, But he wouldn't let it rest. What with Medicare and Blue Cross It wouldn't hurt to do some tests. To the hospital he sent me, Though I didn't feel that bad. He arranged for them to give me Every test that could be had. While my gizzards were x- rayed. I was checked for worms and parasites For fungus and the cmd, While they pierced me with long needles Taking samples of my blood. Doctors came to check me over, Probed and pushed and poked around, And to make sure that I was living, They wired me for sound. They have finally concluded, (Their results have filled a page) What I have will finally kill me. My affliction is OLD AGE.

Life Center Participant Dale Jarvis shows off one of the seven different varieties of watermelon served at the annual Life Center Watermelon Festival. Activity Director Sandy Bond visited the watermelon festival at Rush Springs and brought back several varieties of melon for the Participants to taste and compare. This year the varieties served included crirnson sweet, desert king, pure orange, black diamond, seed- less, delta, and jubilee. During the activity, participants learned how to test the melon to make sure it is ripe, various facts about the watermelon and its place in history, as well as sharing their own memories of growing watermelon. The Participants then tasted and rated each melon by flavor, sweetness, color, and texture. Of the seven varieties tasted, this year's winner was the pure orange.
