Page 6 - Wednesday, November 26, 1980 KEEP SMILING A couple of years ago, James H. O&apos;Donnell (Yumpin Yiminy Yimy of Box 182 Mendocino, CA) spent nearly a year in a hospital. No one (not a one) thought he would come out of that hospital alive, but Jimmy will be celebrating his 92rid birthday on February 4, 1981, andhis message to the world is. "Keep smiling, no matter what happens, keep smiling !" LOOKING GOOD According lo some, there are three stages of life. Young, middle age and "Gee, you're looking good!" REVERSED Fear does strange things, does it not? According to a TV news report way-out-left Norman (All In The Family) Lear is making plans to organize against the so called moral majority. I donq have answers because Idon't know where the world is going...bu[ I would hope the "moral majority" simply means the pendulum will be swinging the other way for awhile. Withoul force, if left alone, people have a way of working oul their problems. Liberalism has had forty years to work on the country's problems, now it's time to try another way. Neither party can nor will "work" without the understanding and cooperation of its peoples. People are the government. Organized force or political power is not the answer. Live and let live might be. INCENTIVE Accepting a $800 per month disability check made the young handicapped man feel like less than a human being. Taking the money offered no incentive or challenge. He returned the last check he received to the proper authorities and has asked that they not send any more. The young man has taken full responsibility for himself and is now "making it" on his own. For some, welfare is not the best fare. DISCRIMINATION It is said that government cannot legislate morality because that would be discriminating against the rights of others. Government does legalize immorality and calls it freedom of choice. MONDAY NIGHT What a thrill it was hearing Howard Cossell tell about Jerry Robinson who saved a fumble and ran it for a touchdown for the Philadelphia Eagles. We heard it on Monday night football. Jerry is a former Cardinal Newman High School (Santa Rosa) all-star athlete who has a bright and shining career ahead of him in professional football. He is also a friend and we are "busting our buttons" with pride. You will never meet a nicer, more thoughtful person. Just ask the kids from Cloverdale who went to school with him. 7Manzanita Manor Musings By JAN FREEMAN Have you ever done this?

Which brings sider time according to our me to my announcement. life span and our ability to Beginning December 1 operate withirr a given and going through January period - moments, hours, 31, I will be on leave of days, etc. Perhaps we are absence from the hospital to haphazard in the planning restore some lost time, of our moments but nevertheless, we all operate within a cerain time frame. Unfortunately, there are lhose to whom time has no more meaning. Days blend into nights and again to days with the only thing to look forward to is eating and sleeping. Sometimes, this can cause a loss of time for long periods, sort of a "Rip Van Winkle" situation. This especially happens as we get older, are chronically or even mildly ill, or in the case of younger people, under a lot of pressure m several areas of our lives. It results in a need for someone to help restore the lost period of events within a given frame. For instance, have you ever noiced that Grandpa or Grandma or Uncle Ed and Aunt Alice repeat the same stories over and over again about what they did "back when," only to realize that they can't remember whal happend 6 months ago, last week or even yesterday? menmry, etc., in my family and life.
