Gotta love old people!
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. :lol:
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. :lol:
Anyone else get cards they can't read or gifts from old admirers?
Haha yes I contacted my grandfathers old war buddy who lives in Quebec when I moved to Canada......my grandfather and father have passed, so now I get the cards and letters........I can't make out a word!!!! But I reply with much enthusiasm as I know he's getting on (85 I believe) and know that he very much enjoys getting a letter.....I type it just to make sure he can read it!!!!:lol:
In size 14 font Muppet?
Alex, I can make out some of the card - happy holidays and happy new year; thanks so much for the nice note, card & picture; I'm glad you enjoyed~ Please come again; I'm hanging in and hanging on; sincerely....
(I used to work in a hospital reading doctors' handwriting, the worst...!) Sounds like you made a nice friend!
I get some of the words.
"Happy Holidays and Happy New Year to all"
and "Thanks for ###### and nice card and wishes. I'm glad you enjoyed #######
and after that she's #####ing and #####ing and Sincerely,
Can you fill in those blanks?
I believe you have a marketable talent! I'd pay a few bucks to a translation service online for something like that.
Muppet, can you read the note you get back? I wrote really big on my card to her too, so she could read it, I wonder if they can read their own writing? :wink::lol:
awww how sweet!! I love our senior citizens. They have so much to give - their stories are fascinating. When I see a little old couple I always remember that once they were young...they went to school, to work, fell in love, perhaps married and raised a family. Some of those old dudes and chicks have lived some amazing lives!!
