Turkey talk: will microwavable birds make it to Thanksgiving?

With so many smart women about, could become reality

IRISH KEMP ¦ Contributing Writer

SENIOR SLANT

(Nov. 9, 2012) H’mmm! What comes first, the turkey or the tree? Hard to overlook election year with all the turkeys running around these days. Won’t it be great sitting down at the table with the only turkey in the room incapable of opening his mouth?

Memories of getting up before sunrise to start the turkey kinda’ rattle the brain. Are there microwaved birds in our future? With so many smart women around, maybe some of the turkeys running around with loose lips, goose will be cooked on Election Day.

Enjoy yourself, it’s later than you think. Most seniors are well aware they can’t take it with them. If you try, the chances of it all going up in smoke are a hundred fold. Give as long as you live and bask in the feel-good feeling.

During the holiday season, no matter the age, our town is full of wonderful ways to share your good fortune with others less fortunate. It could be a hundred fold investment, as in accidentally saving your soul or the soul of somebody less fortunate.

Many thanks to the mike-less “unflappable” Dennis Roarty. Fun and fundraising are truly what this club is all about. For membership information, call Fran Kelly at 410-250-3361.

Meeting, greeting, tweeting or just out skeetering about, I found Rob and Carol Robinson, Dot Healey, Mike and Fran Kelly, Maureen Pinnix, Ray and Carlee Archer, Helen Subkowiak, George and Joan Saur, the Dares, Joan DeMarco, Rita Valerno and Bill and Ceil Clark.

Life on our shore is never a bore, especially if you’re a bingo fanatic. Bingo’s not my game, but if you moved here and love bingo, you’re in be-nign heaven. Folks of all ages attend these events and know the locations by heart.

Socializing and fundraising all hours of the day and night probably won’t make us any healthier, wealthier or wiser, but it beats going to bed early and getting up early in my books.
