It Hasn’t Happened Yet


A retirement residence is now my new home, of choice. I’m enjoying the change of pace very much. The age range here is from sixty-three to one-hundred and one…a very interesting group of folks.

Due to Covid, we are masked except when in the dining room for meals. We also try to keep the social distancing rule. But you know what…there is much loneliness among the residents. Painful backs, knees, shoulders, among other ailments make it difficult for some to get around without the aid of walkers or wheelchairs.

From experience, I know that hugs are a great remedy for much of the above, and have started giving out a little hug here and there; fully masked with heads turned away, and in all cases, gratefully reciprocated.

There’s an old adage that you can’t do wrong by doing right, but in this case I’m not so sure, and have been expecting to be reprimanded, but it hasn’t happened yet.

Happy Saturday.
