This week to cheer up the elderly, I promised some of the female patients at the Birch Street Nursing Home that I would keep a late-night vigil outside their windows until the Birch Street Nursing Home thief is caught.

Occasionally attending the neighborhood church will make you seem less suspicious. Also, many churches hold classes for young children, and you can volunteer to lead them without having any teaching credentials whatsoever.

This week to cheer up the elderly, I walked with Mrs. Chang next door to the Birch Street Funeral Home and helped her pick out a coffin. After that, there was still some time before her afternoon nap, so we walked across the street to the Birch Street Cemetery, where I helped her pick out a plot. When we got back to the Birch Street Nursing Home, I pointed out that she can see her cemetery plot from her window. This seemed to cheer her up, as she said her next move won't be as difficult as her last.

Girls, there's nothing wrong with keeping your wedding ring on even after your marriage is over. Men enjoy being pursued by women wearing wedding bands. Just remember, you don't have to disclose what happened to your last husband.

Hi, Kiddies! This weekend I received an email from Mrs. Lillian Primscott of Birmingham, England. She writes: "Dear Grandmother Winsome, I'm sad to report that our son has died. My husband and I are busy making all the necessary arrangements which accompany such a tragedy, and we see that the expenses are quickly getting out of hand. My husband mentioned that since our dog loves burying bones and was fond of our child, perhaps we could just forgo the whole funeral and cemetery plot and let the dog do the work. Besides, we've been saving money for a trip to Hawaii, and a funeral would force us to put off our plans for another year. We'd prefer not use our vacation fund for something as unenjoyable as a funeral. My only real concern is our family and loved ones. They expect a ceremony. What should we do?"
Well, Lillian, I think letting the dog do the work is a marvelous idea. Why spend all that money on an expensive coffin when you're only going to see it for an hour or so before it's buried? As for your family and friends, you can still have a funeral. Just simply have it at your home. Set the body up on some crates or a card table, and let folks pay their respects. Then those who wish to stay longer can make the trip to the back yard to watch the dog do its job. You may wish to set up some chairs outside, because depending on the size of the dog and the temperature of the day, the burial may take quite a while. However, regardless of how long it takes, your vacation fund will remain intact. And after spending a day with all your relatives, getting away will be even more gratifying. You're going to love Hawaii.

This week to cheer up the elderly, I found a cushion for Mrs. Chang to replace the pillow I'd given her earlier, which was stolen by the Birch Street Nursing Home thief.
