Tecumseh Golden Age Center

Arthenia Haney and her "sweetheart," grandson Carter Jackson Haney

The center is decked out in red - red hearts, that is - because February is when our hearts turn to love and good works for Valentine's Day on the 14th. That is what the center is all about - fellowship and good will toward all. Come join us!

Did you observe the total lunar eclipse (an eclipse of the moon) on the night of Jan. 20? The moon is such a symbol of romance and love, but actually it has no light itself. It shines by sunlight reflected from its surface. The moon orbits the earth approximately every 29.5 days, and as the earth orbits the sun, it changes the position of the moon with respect to the sun which causes the phases of the moon.

A beautiful full moon is visible all night long because the moon is directly opposite the sun in the sky. A total eclipse occurs when the entire moon passes through the earth's shadow which causes the moon to appear "blood red"! The last total lunar eclipse was Jan. 31, 2018, and the next one will happen on May 26, 2021. Remember these are different from solar eclipses so they can be observed with the naked eye, so enjoy. The next partial lunar eclipse is July 16, 2019.

Our nutritionist visited with a list of Super Foods. Who doesn't want to feel better? She recommended adding these foods to your diet: berries, citrus fruits, eggs, omega fish, nuts, oats, green leafy vegetables, orange veggies, and olive oil.

We extend our sympathy to the family of Fred Hall. He will be missed at the domino table! Also our hearts go out to the families, teachers, and students of Tecumseh High School following the tragic car accident last month involving students.

We are thankful Leon Kroger, Mike Hulin, and Loretta Collier are home from the hospital. We welcomed Joyce Webb's son, David Unland, who was visiting from Georgetown, TX and Louann Parson visiting from Eureka Springs, AR.

Jan. 31 was grandparent's day at Bixby Elementary. I spent the day with a sweetheart, my grandson, Carter Jackson Haney, in third grade! Charles Schulz who created the Peanuts cartoon, had it right. He said, "All you need is love. BUT a little chocolate now and then doesn't hurt."

Happy Valentine's Day!
