Phone call stupidity? That's some how-dee-do to a person who vastly prefers hearing the sound of the voice of the person I'm communicating with as opposed to faceless, voiceless e-mail. Certainly I would would have thought that somebody YOUR age would understand. You are not exactly a teenager.
> we're moving because my wife will be 78 years old, and there's no reason for us to be living in a 2 story house with 4 bedrooms, a 2 car garage, full basement, LR, full kitchen, dining room, living room and recreation room.
He is just envious because he cannot afford to move, despite frequently viocing a yearning for Vegas.
Well, two years ago your wife was going on 77 and you were going on 78. What was the reason then for you to be living in such a house? Why does an extra year or two make such a difference unless there are health reasons?
Do you think I'm a person to just accept half-truths? I asked you specifically what the REAL reason was and just aa I expected, you completely DODGED it.
I'm a persistent sort though and so I'll ask you again - what's the REAL reason? My mother lived in her house until she got here TIA stroke at age 91 and her sister lived in her Queens apartment until three weeks before she died at age 89.
Most of those that are still fit and able want to see something other than wrinkled old faces. Are you something less than fit and able?
Did you really think you could just slip it by that you were moving to a retirement village without my asking about it? Trying to slip something like that by me is like trying to slip dawn past a rooster. Let's just say that your Uncle Sherlock always has his antenna up and picks on on this sort of thing.
Now answer the question and I want the truth, the whole truth and nothing but the truth.
Why are you moving to a place where there are only oldsters? Could it be that your bad back is acting up to the point where you need to be in a place where doctors are a footstep away?
Let's hear it - what is the REAL reason you are moving?
""it's bad enough i have to see your BUllxxit LIES being posted here. ""
Put him on ignore. no lies, no posts.
Or, do you need this to live at your age because no one wants anything to do with a drunken, bigoted old man?
Here is an excerpt from your post:
i just got back from a luncheon at the retirement place we're planning on moving to before the end of the year
What would normal people call this "retirement place" you will be moving to - an assisted living facility, a nursing home or an insane asylum?
