thing Good" and "Mrs.
Brown, You've Got A
Lovely Daughter."
Tickets are $35 for non-

the World communities.
OTOW residents pay
slightly less.
The following evening,
Oct. 2, the fun moves to the
outside to the Town

ties surrounding the upcom-
ing trip.
The cadets often have
fundraising opportunities to
help purchase equipment
and supplies they need at
the school. Instead of con-
tinuing with the use of the
money for the club's gain,
the group opted to support
the "local heroes in our
community," said Corral.
The Ocala group ofvolun-
teers started planning the
first Honor Flight after vol-
unteer Rose Clements saw a
morning show segment ded-
icated to the Honor Flight.

That show highlighted a
small town in the Carolinas
that raised enough money to
send each of their World
War II veterans to see the
Washington D.C. Memorial
constructed in 2004.
She was inspired by the
program and recruited oth-
ers to help raise funds for
the cause.
"Some of our veterans
don't have the means, phys-
ically or financially, to get to
Washington D.C. On their
own. Every veteran should
be able to see their memo-
rial," she said.

World War II veterans
wanting to make the Oct. 28
trip should register on the
website at Ocala Honor
Those wishing to make
donations may also make
them on the website. Checks
should be made out to the
Florida Department ofVFW

Not all cranes come to Florida by fol-

Some chicks are reared in the field and
then released after fledging. They learn
the airways to Florida from older, wiser,
wild birds. Eleven other whoopers will
come to Florida that way, which is re-
ferred to as direct autumn release.
All of this human involvement has
saved the bird species.
Almost extinct in the 1940s, now there
are 550 birds in existence. Around 400 of
them are considered wild.
Whooping crane are beautiful birds -
about five-foot tall, having white bodies,
black wing tips and red crowns on their
heads. They like the wetlands.

Just the other
day I was exercis-
ing my First
Amendment right
when my wife
Looked at me and
~er said, "Are you
gru bling again?"
What is a hus-
band to do? If I answer in the negative,
she gives me one of those looks that
pierces asunder to the soul. She has done
this so much that I can honestly say that I
have a holey soul. Then again, if I answer
in the affirmative I acknowledge that she
is right and I am grumbling.
So I do not know what grumbling really
is or if, like my wife insists, I am the all-
time record holding champion of the art
of grumbling. As far as I am concerned, I
just have an opinion and like sharing that
opinion with all and sundry.
To develop the fine art of grumbling
there are rules. For example, some things
are off limit. I never grumble about my
wife's cooking or keeping the house for
the simple reason that she is the immac-
ulate conception of effectiveness when it
comes to those household chores and du-
ties. After all, I never complain about
someone who prepares my meals and has
control of the ingredients that go into my
There is one area that is a completely
free-for-all when it comes to grumbling.
That area is simply the political arena.
Every United States citizen has a free
pass when it comes to complaining about
politicians. After all, we pay our taxes,
usually on time.
This brings me to my first area of grum-
bling when it comes to politics. Why is it
that so many elected to office forget about
paying their income tax? I know it only
comes once a year, every year and the
taxes are deducted on our payroll, but
everyone knows how easy it is to forget to
pay taxes. I am seriously considering run-
ning for some political office, any office
will do, just for the benefits; huge salary,
enormous retirement benefits, the rest-of-
my-life health care and I can forget to pay
my income tax. What other profession of-
fers so much for so little brainpower?
Another area of grumbling has to do
with telling the truth. What other profes-
sion is built upon lie after lie after lie.
Then when caught in a downright lie, you
explain it away by saying, "That was taken
out of context." Or, "I did not have sex
with that woman."
In just about every profession, as far as
I can think of, except used-car salesmen
and televangelists, there are penalties to
pay if you tell a lie. However, in the area
of the professional politician you cannot

Jan and Roland "Mr. Bingo"Johnson were out for Bingo
night last week in Quail Meadow.

First things first!
Last week I men-
tioned the "gopher"
escapade. I'm sorry; I for-
got that many of you
"Northerners" don't know
Our "Southern" language.
I was informed by some of
you that a "gopher" is a ro-
dent and couldn't under-
stand why Linda would
pick up a rodent. Let's
look up the word "gopher"
in MVr. Webster's Univer-
sit Dcton ry :"a gph r
the genus Gopherus, esp.
G. polyphemus of the
southeastern United
States." Remember the
story of the tortoise and
the hare? The tortoise was
a land turtle! Now you
know that here in the
South, we refer to a tor-
toise as a "gopher."
Everyone had a good
time at the "potluck" din-
ner. The food was out-
standing, as always.
Approximately forty resi-
dents attended the dinner.
The next event will be the
Oktoberfest and auction
on Monday, Oct.18. This
will be a dinner of brats,
hot dogs, sauerkraut, po-
tato salad, and an assort-
ment of apple desserts.
Tickets are available now.
Contact Charlotte Payne
or Judy Zobel for tickets.
Tickets must be pur-
chased (donation of$5) by
Oct.13. The annual auc-
tion will be held in con-
nection with the dinner,
The bingo games began
last Tuesday. Attendance
was small, but we still
have some residents on
vacation. The next bingo
night is Tuesday, the 28th.
A very pleasant surprise
was having Roland John-
son sitting at a table and
playing the games. We feel
like Roland is "MVr. Bingo"
of Quail Mleadow. His
health has prevented him
from participating as ac-
tively as in previous years.
Anyway, Roland, it's great
to have you joining in the

Each year, dentists treat
millions of cavities that result
from the enamel-eating acids
emitted by sugar-eating bacteria
missed by flossing and brushing.
While drilling out tooth decay and
filling cavities with amalgam or
composite fillings has proven
extremely effective in preserving
the remaining healthy tooth
structure, patients often wish they
i nate some c y ma icall
regenerate the tooth back to its
previous healthy state. That wish
may someday be a reality because
scientists have identified a peptide
know as MSH (melanocyte-
stimulating hormone) that
encourages cells within decayed
teeth to regenerate in about one
month. When introduced into the
teeth in a gel or film in the
laboratory, cavities disappeared
and were replaced by healthy
tooth structure.
Drilling teeth and filling them
is safe and effective. However,
though we numb the tooth, many
patients still rue the sound of that
drill. This column has been
brought to you in the interest of
better dental health by the office

5071 for an appointment. Have
you been putting off seeing a
dentist? We're located at 11902

Johnny Carson, Oprah,
Regis Philbin shows to
name a few.
The show he performed
at Stone Creek is called
Mlentalmania. It was truly
unique. He asked four peo-
ple to each give him a four
digit number. These num-
bers were added. He asked
another resident to choose
one phone book from three
that they were given. She
chose a Las Vegas phone
book. He asked the person
to go to page 252, then the
third column and look at
the 4th phone number down
in that column. The person
thought of the first letter of
the person's name and then
continued until Mlark had
spelled the person's name
- Juel E Enger and then he
gave the address while the
person thought of the ad-
dress. It was 7068 Big
Springs Court. All of this
was done on the first try by
Another SC resident, Lou
was asked to draw a picture.
He drew a plane and then
while Lou thought about
what he drew, Mlark drew a
similar plane.
Larry Beitel was called
upon and given ten keys -
one of which opened a lock.
Larry tried all the keys to

make sure that only one key
opened the lock. He then
placed each lock in a sepa-
rate envelop and they were
distributed to 10 people.
The people exchanged
places in line and ex-
changed keys. He called out
numbers and if the person's
number was called they
gave him the key and went
back to his or her seat. The
last person standing took
out their key and yes, it did
open the lock. Amazing....
Mark then asked people
to take out a dollar bill. He
exchanged his bills with the
dollar bills that people gave
him. He had a resident
choose one of the bills. This
was given to another resi-
dent who thought about the
serial number on the bill.
Mark wrote the correct se-
rial number of the bill -

to write their name on a slip
of paper and one thought.
Mark gave examples. The
papers were folded in half
and placed in a large en-
velop. Mark went to the cen-
ter of the stage and sat
while each resident thought
about his or her thought.
Mark called out a name and
that person stood. He called
Rita singer. He told Rita
that her thought said she
wanted to parasail. He
called Elaine and told
Elaine that she took a
cruise to Normandy in 2009
and this was correct. He
called Ginger and told her
she was excited about a big
event in December. She was
going to be a grandmother
to twins. This was also cor-

rect. Jean Knots was called
and told her thought said
that she was married 44
years to the love of her life,
Don. Lyn was told that Nov.
28 was an important date as
she would become a breast
cancer survivor. Art was
called and he was told that
in front of the Eiffel Tower
he proposed on one knee to
his wife Mlary Beth. It was
truly an amazing feat but
the best was left for last.
He asked two people to
give him a number. The
number was 58 and they
were asked if they wanted
to change it to 85 but they
wanted 58. Mark took a 4 by
4 grid that contained 16
spaces and in 55 seconds,
he had every section across,
down and diagonally all add
up to 58. Each quarter of the
grid added up to 58; the
middle section of 4 num-
bers added up to 58 and the
four corners added up to 58.
I am sure we could all do
this but it would probably
take us much, much longer.
This was truly amazing.
Below is an e-mail, one of
many, that Jennifer re-
ceived about the night.

'ht ight! You put to-
gether quite a show with
Mark Stone. You (and those
who helped) deserve a great
deal of credit. I'm sure
