Tonawanda News — Sounds a lot like the Senior Moment Motorcycle Club.
Listening to a conversation while in line at a local store, two women were talking about retiring. One had already retired and was encouraging the other to do the same.
“What would I do if I retired?”
“Do something you always wanted to do but didn’t have time to do.”
The second woman replied: “I’ve done everything in my life I always wanted to do. So I guess I’ll just work until I fall over.”
Have you ever heard anyone say they’ve done everything they’d always wanted to do?
Don’t forget to go fly a kite today at Gratwick-Riverside Park in North Tonawanda. The Vietnam Veterans Chapter 77 will host the event which is fun for the whole family. Although I’ll be at a New York Forest Owners Association woods walk early in the day, I’ll have my kite in the car to enjoy the fun in the afternoon.
A group of parents at the St. Francis of Assisi School soccer game last week were talking about a plan they’d like to give Bishop Malone. (By the way, the soccer team, magnificently coached by Sheila Neumeister, has won every game so far.)
They suggested that the bishop say: “Because of the great outpouring of love and devotion to St. Francis of Assisi School, I’ve taken another look at the school’s closing. Because I am new to the area, I didn’t realize that residents are land-locked along with those in North Tonawanda seeking a Catholic education for their children, as the two cities do not bus children out of the districts. The decision seems to have been made without a full disclosure of the facts. I would like the school to continue to grow and serve as Pope Francis would like.”
