From the Smith County Pioneer

Old is when:
-- Your sweetie ways, "Let's go upstairs and make love," and you answer, "Honey, I can't do both."
-- Getting a little action means, I don't need to take fiber today.
-- You don't care where your spouse goes as long as you don't have to go along.
-- Getting lucky means you are about to find your car in the parking lot. ________________________________________________________________________________________________

Minutes - Downtown Optimists, November 1st

In addition to giving us a brief background on his athletic achievements, Dennis Readee attended Shawnee Heights and ended with a two year stint with indoor football, here in Topeka. During his years with the Y, he has organized the youth football program. With this is the need to be concerned about injuries. With concussions being a hot topic today, he note that female athletics seem to have a greater incidence of concussions the male athletics, especially those involved in cheerleading and gymnastics. Also those with thicker necks and better hydration are less likely to suffer from concussions.

It was mentioned at the meeting that the Jr. League is collecting diapers to be given to needy mothers this year. Nancy Foster suggested the members could bring packages of diapers to  the meeting to give to the speaker. So, bring your package of diapers along ... That will really be a nice gesture!
