THE SENIOR TIMES A Publication of The Senior Network October 2022 Humor Me: A policeman was interrogating 3 guys who were training to become detectives. To test their skills in recognizing a suspect, he shows the first guy a picture for 5 seconds & then hides it. "How would you recognize this suspect?" The first guy answers, "He only has one eye!" The policeman says, "Well...uh...that's because the picture is his side profile." Slightly flustered by this stupid response, he flashes the picture for 5 seconds at the second guy and asks him, "How would you recognize this suspect?” The second guy smiles, flips his hair, & says, "He only has one ear!" The policeman angrily responds, "What's the matter with you two?? Of course, because it's a picture of his side profile! “ Extremely frustrated at this point, he shows the picture to the third guy & in a very testy voice asks, "How would you recognize this suspect? The third guy looks at the picture intently for a moment & says, "the suspect wears contact lenses." The policeman is surprised & speechless because he doesn't know himself if the suspect wears contacts. He checks the suspect's file on his computer and says "Wow! It's TRUE! He does wear contact lenses. Good work! How were you able to make such an astute observation?" Third guy: "That's easy; he can't wear regular glasses because he only has one eye & one ear! Golden Nuggets Autumn is here showing off a blaze of color as trees are decked out in rich hues of red, yellow and orange. These colors appear because a tree stops its food-making process. The green chlorophyll, which appears in the spring season, breaks down revealing the true colors of a tree’s leaves. Humans are much like the trees. When we are in our young “spring” season, we often tend to dress, act and look the same as everyone else. Our “green” is showing. As we mature, we branch out and show our true colors Our “fall” season is bright with reds, yellows and oranges known as talents, expertise and abilities we have gained over the years. We are still the same trees we always have been, but now we can express our uniqueness in new more colorful ways. Ecclesiastes 3:1 states it best. “There is a time for everything, and a season for every activity under the heavens”. Regardless of the “season” you are in now, it is important to give the glory to God, the Creator, who made them all. Who’d A Thunk? The first disposable camera was invented in the 1880’s but was not made popular until 1987 when Kodak developed and marketed “The Fling”. It contained 24 photos. Remember When…. One of the most popular devices was a Nintendo; and you had to insert a different cartridge for every game you wanted to play?

Judy moved to Raleigh with her parents in 1963. She retired in 2002 from the Coastal Federal Credit Union after 15 years of service to care for her homebound mother.
After her mother’s passing in 2004, Judy worked part time for Bryan Lee Funeral Home and volunteered at Rex Hospital and for Angel Ministries.
Judy always felt her spiritual gifts were those of service to others, especially senior adults. She helped start a senior group at her church, Christ Baptist. She continues to help organize activities at the Crossings where she lives. She has been involved in many volunteer activities in Wake Forest and is now a “Senior Buddy” for TSN.
Judy claims Romans 8:28 as her motto to live by. “And we know that for those who love God all things work together for good for those who are called according to his purpose.”
