Life in an Old Folks Home -- Continued

   Eva, octogenarian, who is engaged to Milton, likewise, fell while getting out of bed and broke her hip.  She is in the hospital.

   Enough said, that's life in the old folks home.

   Emma reported that someone stole her wine while she was at dinner.  She showed the empty bottle to prove her loss.  Later it was found that her son took her full bottle away because the caregivers said she "couldn't have wine in her room without a doctor's okay.":

   Maxine reported that during the recent rain, people came in from outside and got into her bed with their muddy shoes.  They brought all their animals with them and they are on the walls, all around, and were "still there".

   One night I heard a disturbance in the hall and looked out to see Ida in her nightgown, standing by the outside door, directing Frank to search for an intruder between cars in the parking lot.  Frank was armed with a pocket knife.

Don't let these happenings get you down. Just talk to your younger friends here in j-land. Hope Eva gets well and the wedding goes on. Paula

Oh how sad!  Sounds like everybody is having a bit of trouble.  Especially Maxine who sounds like she is hallucinating.  I do hope that Eva gets better so that she and Milton can marry. -Krissy
