Ten things a wise Grandpa once read aloud:
- Life is simpler when you plough around the stump.
- A yellow jacket is faster than a John Deere tractor.
- Words that soak into your ears are whispered, not yelled.
- Meanness doesn’t happen overnight.
- Never corner something meaner than you.
- The best sermons are lived, not preached.
- Most of the stuff people worry about never happens.
- Don’t interfere with something that ain’t botherin’ you none.
- Lettin’ the cat outta the bag is a whole lot easier than puttin’ it back in.
- Never miss a good chance to shut up.
Seniors, February 3rd is National Read Aloud Day and what a great time to teach the younger generations a thing or two! Whether it be silly, classic, poignant or written by you; don’t miss this opportunity to share some wisdom or your favourite verse. Reading aloud helps everyone make a little more sense of the world; it also assists in improving information processing skills, vocabulary, and comprehension. Find some time this week to express some good, old fashioned literary language – even if you have to do it over Facetime or Zoom!
