NewsLetter October 2020


From my friend, David

I decided to start off with a challenge.

Yep, it's that time of year again—time for us to take our annual senior citizen test. Exercise of the brain is as important as exercise of the muscles.

As we grow older, it's important to keep mentally alert. If you don't use it, you’ll lose it!!! Here is a very private way to gauge how your current memory compares to that of your last test. Some may think it's too easy, but the ones with memory problems may have difficulty.

Take this test to determine if you're losing it or not. Answers are at the end of the NewsLetter.

DON’T cheat and look ahead.

OK, RELAX. Clear your mind and then begin.

#2. Say “silk” ten times. Now spell ”silk.” What do cows drink? _______________

#3. If a red house is made from red bricks and a blue house is made from blue bricks and a pink house is made from pink bricks and a black house is made from black bricks, what is a greenhouse made from? _______________

#4. Please do not use a calculator for this question, as it would be cheating.

You are driving a bus from New York City to Philadelphia. In Staten Island, 17 people got on the bus. In New Brunswick, 6 people get off the bus and 9 people get on. In Windsor, 2 people get off and 4 get on. In Trenton, 11 people get off and 16 people get on. In Bristol, 3 people get off and 5 people get on. In Camden, 6 people get off and 3 get on. You then arrive at Philadelphia Station.

Without going back to review, how old is the bus driver? ____________
