Participate in The Longevity Project

The Longevity Project is an annual campaign to help educate readers about what it takes to live a long, fulfilling life in our valley. This year Kevin shares his story of hope and celebration of life with his presentation Cracked, Not Broken as we explore the critical and relevant topic of mental health.

Juanita Davis has been enjoying a visit from her son, and Esther Alicea is doing real well and has been enjoying family and friends in to visit with her.

Darlene Cantrell has had family in about every day to see her, including grandson.

We enjoy the new people we got but we wish the best luck to the ones leaving us. We hope to see Rosa DeVault back here soon, as well!

Jokes of the Week

■ Two guys were talking and one said, “I think my wife is losing her hearing.”

The second guy said, “Well, test it out. Get 100 feet away from her and ask her what’s for dinner. Then get 25 feet closer and ask again. Keep doing that until you’re shouting in her ear and see what works.”

So the guy did that. He started 100 feet away, but no response. He asked again at 75, 50 and 25 feet. Finally, and exasperated, he asked it right in his wife’s ear.


“CHICKEN!” she shouted back. “That’s what I told you the last four times you asked me, too!”

■ A doctor was walking down the hall and a nurse said to him, “Doctor! What did you tell that poor woman in room four?”

“I told her she was pregnant,” the doctor said.

“But doctor, she’s 74 years old!” the nurse said.

“Yes,” replied the doctor. “But it got rid of her hiccups, didn’t it?”
