Now because of your wayward behavior, I have another part time job: maintenance man. Unexpected trips to the hospital, doctors testing and poking you; often finding not an answer but several “it-could-be’s”; and then I spend weeks worrying what the “could- be’s” could really be! Body, you were once an asset and now it’s just “patch, patch, patch”.
But I haven’t given up on you - at least not yet. Even though you haven’t been kind, I will still do my part. I will keep moving, stay active, laugh with friends, and eat well. And then will you see the error of your ways?

“Where the elite meet to eat” was at Duffy’s Tavern, the popular radio comedy series starring Ed Gardner as the bartender Archie. (The winner of a free Saturday breakfast is Karl Vercouteren.) But allow me just one more “Remember When” question from the glory days of radio (and television). What was the name of the popular comedy series that aired on the radio from 1948 - 1958 and television from 1952 - 1956 starring Eve Arden as the sardonic high school teacher and Gale Gordon as the blustery high school principal? Email your answer to the firstname.lastname@example.org, call 541-296-4788 or mail it with a picture of Walter Denton from the 1956 Madison High School yearbook.
