Love Among the Embers

    At Dinner in the old folks home, heard on the public address system:

RECREATION DIRECTOR: May I have your attention, please.  Milton wants to ask a question.
MILTON:  Eva, will you marry me?
RECREATION DIRECTOR: Eva said,  "Yes."
RESIDENTS: (Cheering but with a few cat-calls.)

   Eva and Milton, both in their eighties, who have both celebrated their golden wedding anniverseries with other spouses, will be married here at the home, and probably have their grandchildren as attendants. 
   They are moving today to adjoining rooms with a connecting door.  The date of the door unlocking has not yet been announced.

I have been lurking around your journal for several weeks, and I can't hold it in any longer - I adore you!  You have intelligence, wit, and charm, and not an ounce of poison.  It's nice to know that real people like you really do exist.   Thank you.
