Well today George scared me. He wasn’t ready to go at our usual grocery time. Every Friday, by the time I pull out of my drive, he is already outside waiting on me (rain, snow, sleet or hail) and today he wasn’t there. So I pulled up to the curb and I called him. He didn’t answer. So I got out and knocked on the door and there he was, surprised to see me. I think he’s getting forgetful and I tell you I had a knot in the pit of my stomach when he wasn’t outside today. He’s in a lot of pain most of the time and he tells me all the time that his old body is just worn down. I know these Friday outings aren’t going to last forever, so I’m enjoying them to the max while I can.
Today he told me that he is going to send his bill back to the electric company with a note on it that says: “Deceased. Died of shock upon opening this bill.”
