This week to cheer up the elderly, I went to the Birch Street Nursing Home and covered the bathroom floor with sand and put seaweed in the tub to make them feel like they're at the beach.

Keeping secret video recordings of all your friends and acquaintances can make things easier for you when you’re invited to a wedding. Rather than buy a gift, simply allow the friend to take ownership of his or her video. That person will appreciate having it safely in his or her possession, and you’ll save time and money. Remember to keep an extra copy for when your friend divorces and remarries.

Hi, Kiddies! I am always tickled pink to answer letters from fans. This weekend I received a letter from Ivy Lee of Monterey Park, California.
Ivy writes, “Dear Grandmother Winsome, I always feel bad when I hit someone with my car. But today’s little mishap was certainly due to no fault of mine. I made a right turn, and the old man was just standing there in the middle of the street. So of course I hit him. Yet I still feel bad. How do I put an end to these uncomfortable feelings so that I can get on with my day?”
Ivy, I think a lot of people feel guilty about things over which they have no control. Often these feelings pass on their own. But of course they don’t pass quickly enough. I find that a little whiskey does the trick. You might even try drinking at the start of the day, before you go out. That way, you may be able to avoid bad feelings altogether.

This week to cheer up the elderly, I took the leftover sweets from my last-day-of-school picnic to the patients at the Birch Street Nursing Home because some of them told me they're not provided with enough dessert there.
