Ruth was frequently asked to speak to various groups, much to her delight. She wrote the following is a speech in 2015 – I hope you enjoy it. – Julie Flynn "I'm so happy to be here... because you are honest to goodness grown- ups. I recently spoke to a dozen or so 6 and 7-year old cub scouts whose attention span was about 3 1 /2 minutes. One little guy kept raising his hand and asking how much longer I was going to speak because he wanted his juice and cookies. It was a disaster. I would rather have had a root canal. Maybe one of these cub scouts will grow up and help me cross the street one day. You see, I try to think positively. My talk is supposed to be about how to live a positive life at 87 years of age. I'm not here to tell you how to live your lives. Although come to think of it, I am up here [at the podium] and you are down there [in the audience], so I actually could. Old age is not a gradual process as you might think. I went to bed one night and in the morning was struck with a variety of ailments, some of which I still suffer from. People say that old age is beautiful. Of course, they are usually 23 when they say that. There is nothing so tragic about being 87 unless you are trying to look 33. I gave up trying to look 33 when I was 34. I was in Bishop's supermarket a few days before Hurricane Sandy struck us. It was very crowded and everyone was stocking up on groceries before the storm. I heard a nice man say, "Step aside and let the elderly lady go through the checkout line first." I immediately stepped aside and then realized he meant ME! I mean, how could he have mistaken me for an elderly lady? Granted, my body doesn't come to attention as much as in previous years, but my mind is functioning quite well, thank you. I knew I was old for sure when a double issue of People Magazine arrived all about sexy young men, and it took me 5 minutes to read the whole issue. How did I get this old so quickly? Mostly by making peace with how things are. And by focusing on what I can do rather than what I CANNOT do. I lucked out by being born in 1928 as an only child... and a girl child to boot. My parents took one look at me and declared they had achieved perfection and should quit while they were ahead. My parents taught me how important a sense of humor is. They were full of fun and always made me feel very special. I learned self-discipline from them. You need these traits when you attend a buffet luncheon for senior citizens. It's a lot like feeding time at the zoo. It also helps if you have a hearty snack before you go. I got a nasty case of breast cancer when I was 50 years old and the doctor made it clear I could be a goner in less than a year. (By the way, that doctor is dead.) Because I was lucky enough to be a survivor, I decided to donate some time to other women with breast cancer. Once I retired from a job as an administrative manager with Bell Labs and Bell Communications Research, I started as a volunteer with cancer patients at Hunterdon Medical Center. I'm still doing that 25 years later and it never would have happened had I not been a cancer patient. That job fills me with joy and satisfaction every week. When one door closes another one opens. But you have to be aware of those doors. My first husband died when I was only 41 years old. It was a tragedy beyond belief. But, because of his death, I was forced to get a job to ...continued on page 3 Questions About Real Estate? the Right Realtor Really Makes the Difference!
