Cambridge Senior Chatter Listen to Your Body It's Sunday Afternoon on April Fools day and I've finally gotten my month end report done! It won't go-out until Monday, but at least I don't have to worry about it any longer..I'm writing this column today as well, as I need to be off on Monday. My husband, Dick, ended up in the VA hos- pital this last week. He hadn't been feeling well for quite some time, and despite my urgings to go to the doctor, he insisted that he was only tired because he doesn't sleep very well. Our bodies are marvelous machines and they can take a lot of abuse and wear and tear, but if you ignore those little warning signs that something needs to be taken care of, eventu- ally, even your body can't overcome what is wrong and the warnings become ever louder until we pay" attention. Last Wednesday morning, even my husband couldn't ignore the signs any longer and went to the doctor only to be loaded into an ambulance and carted off to the VA hos- pital. What I want to know is why would a man like my husband who takes his truck in to be fixed at the first sign of something not being right (an odd noise, etc.), not listen to his own body, but wait until he nearly ends up with heart failure before he makes the decision to go to the doc- tor? Now, he isn't the only one who does this, as I have talked to many women and they simply give me that "I know what you're talking about" look as they nod by ]anice Vuich Cawyer- 257-3358 in agreement. The writer of the book entitled "Men are from Mars, Women are from Venus" certainly understood the huge differ- ences in thinking between men and women. Perhaps I need to re-read it! I would like to thank Loveland's general store for their donation of canned foods, and Shannon Williams for her donation of toiletries and misc food items to our Pantry. Every little bit helps, and we appreciate your generosity to the Cambridge-Midvale food pantry. This Friday is our Idaho Potato Bar fundraiser and I hope you're ready for a great baked potato dinner with all the trim- mings. We even have real "Idaho Spuds" from the Idaho Candy Company for dessert! Kay York is also having an art affair that same evening so I hope you will plan on attend- ing both. Cambridge's Nina Hawkins is the featured artist and I'm sure you will be impressed with her artwork. The Dinner and Kay's Meet the Artist will be going on at the same time, so you can visit back and forth between events. I know some of you won't be able to attend because of Good Friday services, and I apologize for setting the dinner on that day, but when I was looking at my calendar, no holidays or special events are noted, so I just assumed that it would be a good date. I guess I will have to get another cal- endar for future events. Until next time, be happy and listen to your body, it just might he trying to tell you something.
