It seems it is later and later these days that parents are experiencing The Empty Nest.
with many older children returning home due to work issues, or staying in college longer, parents may well be into their 60′s, 70′s and even 80-’s by the time they are back out on their own.
Here is an interesting look at the Empty Nest from the Huff Post 50+.
The Hub recently started a new intergenerational activity with the children and teachers from Head Start.
Every other Friday, our Grandma Gooses will take turns reading a story to the children. The teachers are also adding a craft component.
Mark is 90 years old, he’s played golf every day since his retirement 35 years ago, one day he arrives home looking downcast.
“That’s it,” he tells his wife. “I’m giving up golf, my eyesight has become so bad that once I hit the ball I can’t see where it went.”
His wife sympathises and makes him a cup of tea, as they sit down she says, “Why don’t you take your old mate Kevin, and give it one more try.”
“That’s no good” sighs Mark, “Kevin’s a hundred and three. He can’t help.”
“He may be a hundred and three”, says Mark’s wife, “but his eyesight is perfect.”
So the next day Mark heads off to the golf course with Kevin, he tees up, takes a mighty swing and squints down the fairway, he turns to Kevin and says, “Did you see the ball?”
“Of course I did!” replied Kevin. “I have perfect eyesight”.
“Where did it go?” says Mark.
“I don’t remember.”

We do love music and today The Hub was filled with the wonderful voice of singer Jim Cerminaro as we beat the dreary winter blues with a Cabin Fever Party..
Jim went above and beyond by taking requests, all of which he easily was able to fill, and continuing his performance while we enjoyed lunch.
Pictured above are Bruce and Marilyn Owens, soon to be married 60 years.
Yeah, they still got it!

Many guests enjoyed the Christmas Celebration recently at the Hub.
Our chorus accompanied by the band shared holiday tunes and sing along songs.
