Bigger and brighter.December 3, 2020 2:29 am
In July our Tamworth Home and Community care office relocated to Peel Street with lots of bright new signage and recently we included the same theme at our Inverell office window signage to coincide with the launch of our new campaign “Loving your later life at home’
There is nothing wrong with me
– Unknown Author
There is nothing the matter with me,
I’m as healthy as can be,
I have Arthritis in both my knees,
And when I talk, I talk with a wheeze,
My pulse is weak and my blood is thin,
But I’m awfully well for the shape I’m in,
Arch supports I have for my feet,
Or I wouldn’t be able to be on the street.
Sleep is denied me night after night,
But every morning I find I’m alright,
My memory is failing, my heads in a spin,
But I’m awfully well for the shape I’m in.
That for you and me who are growing old,
The moral is this as my take I unfold –
It’s better to say ‘I’m fine’ with a grin,
Then to let folks know the shape we are in.
How do I know my youth is all spent,
Well, my ‘Get Up and go’ has got up and went.
But I really don’t mind when I think with a grin,
Of all the grand places my ‘Get Up’ has been.
Old age is gold I’ve heard it said,
But, sometimes I wonder as I get into bed.
With my ears in a draw, my teeth in a cup,
My eyes on the table until I wake up.
Ere sleep overtakes me, I say to myself,
Is there anything else I could lay on the shelf?
When I was young my slippers were red,
I could kick my heels over my head.
When I was older my slippers were blue,
But still I could dance the whole night through.
Now I am old my slippers are black,
I walk to the store and puff my way back.
I get up each morning and dust off my wits,
And pick up the paper and read the ‘Obits’
If my name is still missing, I know I am not dead,
So I have a good breakfast and go back to bed
