I might turn to them first, but if they can't help for whatever reason, I could turn to the church. Churches have committees who do this sort of thing.

Exactly. They don't even have to know you, just that you're part of the community.

If something terrible happened to me, the newspaper union has a committee that would probably send flowers. Yay. I mean, it's nice, but it's no church committee.

Who knows what might be going on with them when I might need help? (That might sound selfish, but that's sort of my point; you hate to ask/impose.)


I've often  had this conversation with a friend of mine.  She's married, but (by choice) has no children.  Now, she wonders what will happen if her husband dies before her, and tells her nieces that they're in charge of her when she needs to move to an old folks home.

I'm just going to die, and then be  found two weeks later, being eaten by my cats.  :laugh:


Tell him when l come up to him and ask to play the record, l'm gonna say: ''Voulez-vous jouer ce disque?''
'Voulez-vous, will you kiss my dick?'
Will you play my record? One-track mind!

Probably make the cats choke, too.

Well, how delicious does he have to be? I don't know firsthand, but catfood doesn't seem particularly delicious.

Backing up here, Chuck, you have cats? I would love to hear more about them!!

Oddly enough, after the eclipse my Brokie buddies and I are headed up to the Big Horns to look at a property. . . an off-grid home with a big shop, a fleet of vehicles, and space for an airstrip! Perfect retirement home, although the closest hospital is a ways away in Worland.
May 2019 be better for us all.

Maybe that's where the air strip comes in.  ;D  Seriously, though, how far away is "a ways"?
