Mind preservation

Mrs. N. recently spent some time in a Nursing Home to rehabilitate after heart valve replacement surgery.

"I sure don't want to spend any more time in a Nursing Home," she said. "It's depressing and embarrassing to sit around all day waiting for your 1/2 hour of therapy next to people who have lost their minds. Men and women sitting around saying the same things over and over again holding baby dolls, combing and stroking the hair on the dolls. It's OK, I guess, if you've already lost your mind when you get there. I was pretty sure I was going to lose mine if I didn't get out of there as soon as possible."

She's 83 year old, back home and still of sound mind.
