CHIMNEY REPAIRS

T h i nki ng o u t Lo u d New Shoes and a Box of Pencils Do Not an Ant Hill Make Fall is not my season. Even when I was little, I loved sleeping late and awakening naturally to a whole day filled with absolutely nothing but whatever I wanted to do — like lying under a tree on my stomach watching the ants in the grass or lying under a tree on my back watching the clouds in the sky. With summer an endless stretch of just such days, summer was my season — right up until August 1st, when ads for back-to-school supplies and clothes and haircuts evoked the dark specter of early mornings and stuffy classrooms. Oh sure…there were new school shoes, all scuff-free and shiny…the annual box of No. 2 pencils embossed with my full name in glorious gold…and a cool lunchbox destined to smell like peanut butter and apples — but they were cold comfort for someone enchanted by ants. The good news? You can still watch clouds through a schoolroom window — and October 1st really isn’t too early to begin thinking about summer. JUDY

Riddle Think of words ending in -GRY. Angry and hungry are two of them. There are only three words in the English language. What is the third word? The word is something that everyone uses every day. If you have listened carefully, I have already told you what it is?
 - It states, “There are only three words in the English language. What is the third word?” The third word of that phrase is of course “language.” Don’t get angry at me, I didn’t make it up :)

Mom was right. Again.

When it was time to select an Ob-Gyn, Michelle followed her mother's advice. She chose a physician affiliated with The Family BirthPlace at The Hospital of Central Connecticut at New Britain General. That's where Michelle was born. And it's where Michelle proudly delivered her daughter Kali. Michelle's mom Jan knew about the exceptional doctors and nurses, who deliver world-class care, with a warm and compassionate touch. And she felt secure knowing that highly sophisticated medical care was on site, 24/7, should her grandchild need it. The Family BirthPlace at The Hospital of Central Connecticut. Where families are born. For a referral to one of our physicians, call 800-321-6244. For a free baby bib, call 1-888-224-4440.

The healing Power of arT Research suggests that exposing patients to creative arts can improve their state-of-mind and actually enhance, and possibly speed up the healing process. Hospital for Special Care understands the importance of implementing a comprehensive art program that unites art with patient care, while at the same time helps promote art and artists within an entire community. How You Can Help If you are an artist, you may submit your work for display during one of the art shows and allocate a portion of the proceeds to the hospital, or you may donate works of art to our Art Cart. If you are an art lover, you may attend the art openings and enjoy or even purchase artwork. You may also help ensure that our patients continue to receive the benefits of art in their environment by contributing to the Joy of Art! Fund. For further information, or to submit artwork to the Joy of Art! please call: (860) 832-6285. 2150 Corbin Avenue New Britain, CT 06053 www.hfsc.org
