Reminiscing Around The Lunch Table . . .

. . . today, the conversation got around to long-ago dating

and I recalled the time I dated a twin.

I was asked how I could tell the difference,

and I said it was easy.

Laurie painted her nails

and Larry had a beard.

Home Is Where The Hazards Are

The majority of injuries – slips, falls, burns, poisoning, bruises, choking and cuts – to people older than 75 occur at home because that’s where they spend most of their time. Home-accident prevention requires some changes in both environment and behavior.

High on the list is knowing your escape plans in case of fire, flood, earthquake or other major disaster.

Other simple steps to take toward improving safety at home is to install grab bars in bathrooms and hand rails along any stairs around the house, toss out comfortable but curled up throw rugs, have all areas well lighted, and don’t leave shoes and clothing lying around to trip over.
