Not Home Alone

Published in: Click to show all news |

One of the classic movies I frequently watch again at Christmastime is the original "Home Alone" starring eight-year-old Macaulay Culkin who played Kevin MacCallister. The movie script follows the comic misadventures of Kevin has after he is accidently left behind when his family departed for a Christmas vacation in France.

June 21, 1924 - October 18, 2016

Congratulations to our member Ernie LaFerriere, on his 88th birthday in June. He is as feisty as he ever was. He still drives everywhere, is at many of our functions, attends Expressions Fellowship every Sunday, reads voraciously, has outlived three partners, looks many years younger, and certainly knows how to cut the birthday cake into huge slabs. As soon as he finished his piece of cake, he noticed a number out by the pool at the Habana. He excused himself to head-out to the pool area to check it out. We noticed he had his kneepads with him in his back pocket. That's our Ernie! We wish him many more celebrations in good health. Hey, friend, we luv ya!"

Prime Timers sits on my shoulders and wraps around me and keeps me warm. I reach out and it's always at my fingertips. I wear it like an old familiar jacket. Its arms wrap around me like those of an old and trusted friend. It makes me available to all the world and then rewards me with all the hundreds of wonderful men and friends I've met through its embrace. This love affair began in July of 2001 and will always be an integral part of me.
