Yes, Once Again It's MEETING TIME!

Hello friends, fans and followers of the spectacular Anchorage Parkinson's Disease Support Group (Screaming, hysteria from wildly enthusiastic crowd). I want you to know that it is once again... MEETING TIME! (crowd erupts in massive cheer, several people faint) It's all happenining this Saturday, September 19th at 1:00 back at the spacious, gracious ANCHORAGE SENIOR CENTER!!!

What's in store for our intrepid band of northern Parkies? This meeting will feature a panel of highly-qualified PD experts giving us TIPS and TRICKS to help manage this disease. Who are these experts? I'm glad you asked because it's YOU! I'd like everyone to come prepared to share one or two small but helpful tips they have found useful in managing daily life with Parkinson's. Each of us is an expert because we live this disease every day. Together we have decades of experience. We'll share that this Saturday! See you there!

I'd love to be there, but it's a hell of a drive from Maryland and I don't drive any more.

Here's a tip.

If you have dogs and they are in "speed bump" mode, blocking the hallway, in your way from the kitchen to the chair, etc., MAKE THEM MOVE!

Do not try stepping over them. That's when they wake up, jump to their feet, and cause you to fall so they can stand there, looking sheepishly at you with an expression that says, "You should be more CAREFUL, Dad..."

Do NOT let sleeping dogs lie. Make them move.

Good luck with the meeting!
