Gettin' in the St. Paddy's Spirit

Clad in four-leaf clover glasses, Jimmy Veazey, above left, and Vivian Middleton blow bubbles at a St. Patrick's celebration at the Y.M.C.A. last Friday, March 13, 2009.

My picture was in the Sunday's paper showing me dancing with 95-year-old Lener Mae "Baby Doll" Taylor who let go of her walker for a moment to dance to "The Locomotion" with me. The party drew about 60 people from the Vicksburg Senior Center, Y.M.C.A. Active Older Adults and Warren-Yazoo's Someplace Special. I attend Some Place Special four days a week for about six hours. We take field trips, play games, do crafts and it's a good way to socialize. I really enjoy going there. It keeps my mind active and helps me to be physically fit.

That is what it is all about Bob, staying active and not letting things get to us.
