Dear Editor:

"Jack and Jill went up the hill"

It said once on some page

Are Jack and Jill now "OVER THE HILL"

At 70 years of age?

An answer to this question

Can be found at our local gym

You can see them working out there

Hoping to stay fit and trim.

Did you happen to find in your mail box

A brand new insurance card?

Maybe one that you didn't apply for

But one that you should not discard.

The Silver Sneaker program

Is paid for by AARP

Plus other insurance companies

So you may find that it's free

If on Medicare with a supplement

You'll possibly qualify

Come sit on a chair and exercise

And have some fun at the "Y"

Don't say "Oh my hips won't swivel"

Or "My back and knees will get sore"

You only do what you're able to do

So dig that card out of the drawer.

You'll meet our great group of people

In a program that's highly rated

And if "Laughter is the Best Medicine"

We're all "Overmedicated!"
