Greetings to everyone. Hope you all are enjoying the small cool down we’ve been experiencing. The rains were much needed. I am sure we will be having more hot days, but it’s nice to enjoy the breaks when we get them. Please continue to be careful when those days go back into the 90s, though.
Time is passing so fast and summer will soon be over. To fast, the time is passing, oh yeah we are too busy, trying to fit so much in, but, you know, it’s like on the freeway — if you don’t drive fast you will get run over. We do need to slow down and smell the roses sometimes, though.
I attended the N.C. Leadership Symposium last week in Chapel Hill. There was so much to learn, and it was so rewarding. The main focus was productive team building. I will try to apply what I captured to the Senior Center as well as the community. Sharing is a great tool to keep in your everyday tool box. Think of other tools for the box, as well, like love, charity help, compassion. It won’t take long before you will have all the tools for a successful day!
What’s happening at the Center? Lots of things are going on, like the shuttle shopping in Clinton every other Friday. It costs $1. How much cheaper can you get? Remember there is transportation for veterans’ appointments. Call Todd at 299-0127.
Computer Classes begin Sept. 10. September is Senior Center Month. We are planning something special. We will keep you informed.
Let’s look at some remedies. Some of these were shared to me by my good friends Mr. and Mrs. Billy Todd. I just love these remedies, so try them for yourself. To keep an apple from turning brown in your lunch box, slice it and put a rubber band around it.
Reuse your Wet Wipes container to store plastic bags, just pull them out. I tried this one and it works.
If you go to the beach, make sure you pack baby powder, it helps get the sand off your body really easy.
To find lost items like earrings put a stocking over the vacuum hose.
Wow brilliant space saver by installing a tension rod to hang your spray bottles and save up a lot of space. Let us know what you think about these remedies.
This week I dedicate my article to all my faithful readers, especially Mr. James Robinson. He gave us some okra and I said how much do I “owe?” He said, just keep writing your articles. I love that Mr. Robinson.
Remember God loves a cheerful giver.
Mr. LeRoy Boykin thank you for your support. Lynette Britt, thank you for sharing. My friends Delcie, Marion and Edna, you all mean a lot to me. I am always motivated when I visit with you all. My readers that I see you in the grocery store. I don’t know your names, but thanks for sharing. I need that support. Some folks say, “I don’t want no pat on the back” but I do. Pin that rose on me while I can see it.
I have to get the printer, remember keep it 100 percent Under the Shade Tree. Stay connected to your elders.
