Kindred’s Special: Thinking about Old-Timers and Passing of Time

I ask your forgiveness in not presenting Game 8 here of the Reshevsky vs. Kashdan match; a brief rest and a bit of reflection is good for the soul.  But never fear, Game 8 will be coming soon, God willing.

The following is from a visit to the Blossom View Nuring Home located in Sodus, New York during my almost daily visit to the activities room where a music program was in progress for the residents.  It is sung in tune with MY FAVORITE THINGS from the musical THE SOUND OF MUSIC.  A few words were changed to fit my column.  God Bless Us All in health and joy as we grow wiser and tell the grim reaper he can’t knock on our door just yet.

Maalox and nose drops and needles for knitting,

Walkers and handrails and new dental fittings,

Bundles of magazines all tied up in string–

These are a few of my favorite things.

Cadillacs and cataracts, and hearing aids and specs,

Polident and Fixodent and false teeth in glasses,

Pacemakers, golf cars and porches with swings,

These are a few of my favorite things!

When the pipes leak: when the bones creak,

And when the knees go bad,

I simply remember my favorite things,

And in prayer I do not feel so sad.

Hot tea and crumpets and corn pads for bunions,

Bathrobes and heating pads and hot meals on trays,

These are a few of my favorite things.

Back pain, confused brains and no need for sinnin’,

Thin bones and fractures and hair that is thinnin’,

And we won’t mention our shrunking frames,

When we remember our favorite things.

When the joints ache, when the hips break,

When the eyes grow dim,

Then I remember the great life and blessings I’ve had,

And with a joyful SPIRIT UPLIFT!!
