Senior Ramblings

| February 1, 2012 | 0 Comments

Now that I am nicely recuperating from all of my recent medical problems, I have to start on my teeth. They need a lot of extractions, replacements, etc. At my age, the machine is breaking down. I was never one to exercise or eat properly.  The physical therapist and nurse that were sent to my home had good intentions, which I listened to and mostly ignored. I despise exercise, yet, did some of the instructions.

As for my teeth, for extractions, I chose Oral & Maxillofacial Surgery at 4067 Park Boulevard. I can highly recommend them, as several days after the surgery I have had absolutely no pain or numbness. I didn’t get to meet the dentist. I was put to sleep, next thing I knew, I woke up and the surgery was over.  I’m sorry I didn’t get to meet the dentist because I would have liked to tell him what a good job he did. His name is Dr. Podstreleny. Thanks doctor for a painless surgery.

Restaurant Chat

A good restaurant for lunch is the Yummy Buffet, an excellent Oriental buffet-styled establishment, located at 2855 Midway Drive. I had an impressive holiday meal. On Sundays, for a few dollars more, you can have prime rib.

President’s Day Chat

This month we celebrate President Washington and Lincoln’s birthdays. I was born February 16, 1926, between Washington and Lincoln (on the calendar, not the year). Our three oldest presidents were Reagan (69), Harrison (58), and Buchanan (65). The three youngest were Teddy Roosevelt (42), Kennedy (43), and Clinton (46).

Abraham Lincoln was elected to congress in 1846. Kennedy was elected in 1946. Lincoln was elected president in 1860. Kennedy was elected in 1960. Lincoln’s secretary was named Kennedy. Kennedy’s secretary was named Lincoln. Both presidents were succeeded by southerners named Johnson. Andrew Johnson, who succeeded Lincoln, was born in 1808. Lyndon Johnson, who succeeded Kennedy, was born in 1908.

And, now, whatever you think of coincidental, presidential information, go on out and hold someone’s hand!
