THE INCREDIBLE IVIS MEITLER…

This is my friend, Ivis Meitler, a long-time Sylvan Grove resident who lives at the Palace.   She’s a very talented musician and plays the piano every noon in the Ivory Keys Cafe.  It is rare you ever hear her repeat a song.  She has hundreds, maybe thousands of them, tucked away in her mind.  They just roll off her fingertips.

She goes to the “hard” sittercise exercises at 9 o’clock every morning and I can say with certainty that I am light years away from catching up with her.  She can do the “arm, knee, floor” exercises with lightning speed.  She runs circles around the rest of us.  I once commented on how much better she was than I and she said, “Well, I ought to be.  I’ve been doing it a lot longer.”

Ivis is 102 and sharp as a tack.  She has the quickest wit and the best sense of humor of almost anyone here.  She is amazing…

Thanks for tuning in…
