Tecumseh Golden Age Center


The Golden Age Center has transformed from red to green! This month we celebrate St. Patrick’s Day by wearing green for good luck. However, I really remember St. Patrick’s Day because that was my dad’s birthday, and he would have turned 100 this year. He lived a full life to 98, so I am not complaining.

I want to remind you to change your clocks on the 9th by “springing forward” as we anticipate the arrival of spring on the 20th.

Darci Lynne is a famous Oklahoman. If you haven’t heard of her, then you have missed a treat. She was the runner-up on “America’s Got Talent: The Champions” after winning season 12. She is a singing ventriloquist, and she makes this belly talk look easy.

What really sets Darci Lynne apart is that she was the third female, the third child, and the third ventriloquist to win AGT originally. She will be performing again in OKC at the Civic Center on May 12, and tickets are available now for this family-oriented show.

Let me give you some personal information about this talented girl. She was born on Oct. 12, 2004, so she is just 14 years old. Her parents are Clarke and Misty Farmer of Edmond. She has three brothers, and she attends Deer Creek Middle School. She was a great singer, but was too shy to perform so her parents suggested she try ventriloquism. She found that she was good at it, and with coaching became great at it. She also has developed a super singing comedy routine.

She has several character puppets including Cowgirl Katie who yodels and Okie who impersonates Elvis. She entered the talent contest with Petunia, a singing white rabbit who thinks she is a diva. She nearly won being best in the world with Edna Doorknocker, a naughty old lady with a crush on men. Let me tell you that Edna is much, much uglier than most of us old ladies! Darci Lynne Farmer makes me proud to be an “Okie.”

Continue to remember our sick in your prayers. Many suffered from the flu. Kathryn Mullins is recovering from a stroke. Frank Young, Edna Sangster, Syble Martin, Leon Kruger, Anita Combs, Chantel McCray, Charley Pritchert, and Barbara Harrison continue to battle health issues.

The nutritionist visited with some surprise information. Do not try to rid your diet of fat. Instead, limit saturated fats and replace them with monounsaturated and polyunsaturated fats. Once upon a time, fat was dietary enemy #1, but research shows that the healthy kind can protect your heart. I will add exercise at least three times a week for 30 minutes for a healthy heart. Take care of your heart; it is a very important muscle!
