# 1546 TPOS exercise, vitality movement #2

“Jack” is Jack LaLanne
and I realized when I started with
the sitting yoga and the simple yoga
exercises, that many of the exercises
were ones I saw my Mother do along
with Jack on his tv show…
including the mouth exercises !
rowing machine Fav.
yoga for contortionist
til old and gray
realized “Jack” knew best
call it something else

# 1545 TPOS: memorable quotes

The age of 35 seems to be the
number most people over 60 ish
seem to feel mentally. I started asking
the “how old do you feel” after a
resident, Elsa, on her birthday told
me that because of her health
issues, she would say she felt 35
mentally and older than her 80 birthdays.
my mind is only 35
the body says otherwise
say the elderly
first you stoop ~ then you droop
getting old is chicken poop

My father managed a Woolworth store
and was a worker bee.. out on the floor
most of the day walking making sure the
store ran smoothly, creating displays and
greeting customers.
Back in the day (1954) there were knobs to turn,
rabbit ears to adjust … remember the
aluminum foil to get better reception.
and we had a good sized living room
(and of course only 3 channels
on the tv in Milwaukee)
on his feet all day
rolled his eyes at jogging
exercise right here
pointer finger back and forth
walks ‘cross room to change channels

# 1543 TPOS prompt: Dad’s quote

One summer at my parents home,
only one weekend
didn’t have some one or somebodies
“drop in” for a few days….
inexpensive B+B on the way to somewhere
he’d joke.
He said also he was going to put a sign up
“Gerstner Motel and Restaurant”
if any more “dropped by”
family and friends
the weekends of summer
some stay too long
“fish and visitors stink
after three days” dad spouts

# 1542 TPOS prompt: walk/ride by and don’t see .

It is difficult to imagine that
I had to be told where this
holiday display was when I had
just driven by it !
up Bridge Hill
around the corner
a big surprise
Santa in the bathtub
rubber ducky smiling

# 1541 TPOS: through the screen


Being Suzy Homemaker one day
in San Juan P.R. I decided I should
wash the bedroom screens… proved
not to be a good idea…
was told that the dust on the screen is
what kept the sand fleas out of the house
and therefore no bites ! So therefore,
the best prevention was restraint by even
the best of homemakers !
tropical clime
not the same as home
screens washed
sand bugs find the way
itsy bitsy crawlies bite
TPOS through the screen
photo: Juvie Willet walked out from the surf
and found itself a sand flea plus to munch on….
