HOPE FOR THE FUTURE [PERSONAL]
The down side of living in a retirement home [or CCRC, as we like to say] is that everyone is old. The up side is that everyone is old [and still alive.] Yesterday, while Susie and I were doing our bit on the communal 1000 piece jigsaw puzzle in the lobby of our building, a sprightly, pulled together lady walked up and introduced herself as a long time resident of the building. She allowed as how she is ninety-nine! I began to reevaluate my chances of living to see a turn to the left in American politics.
