For my wedding anniversary we rented a cabin in Maine for two weeks. It was owned by a lovely old lady who was also very lonely, she lived on site. I heard her life story, her biggest regret was never having kids, so I told her about my foster kids. I don't know if it's possible that anyone could be more interested, she wanted to know everything, and I mean everything about them.
Very sweet lady, but I checked the windows before going outside as she was clearly very lonely and talked to me one day for over three hours.
So I thought she might appreciate a Christmas card with a photo of the kids and I.
I got this back. I think I can make out about 5 words.
Then my inlaws best friend is a 67 year old man. Physically he looks much older, he's had a tough on the body life as a farm hand his whole working life. Mentally he is about 25. He gets a twinkle in his eye when I gently give him crap or bust on him, and he seeks it out. Everyone calls him 'my boyfriend'.
Last night he gave me a gift, I am the only person he did that for, not my inlaws his best friends, just me. The room erupted into a loud 'uh ohh' and Puschy, my old friend giggled.
It was so honestly very cute. And I got what every girl wants.... a candle.
Anyone else get cards they can't read or gifts from old admirers?
