Can you imagine relaxing in your recliner, maybe watching a game, having a drink and something to eat, and then have a car slam into the front of your house and you end up underneath the car? This poor guy died, as you probably guessed.

It's just another example of when our time is up, your time is up. In such a horribly sad way.

I'm glad you're finally getting some peace.. I'm in the middle of suburbia in NYC of all places and it's quiet to the point of being dead here all the time... and I'm surrounded by neighbors. I don't know where they all run off to though. I feel so isolated here and can't wait to move.

Anyone know WHY Brightdoglover's thread was closed?? We all were concerned about her health/fatigue issues and hoping she would find a reason. So, now what? Who closed it and why?? Would some MOD please answer?

Just got the Clint Eastwood movie, "The Mule" from the library and watched it. I didn't think it was as good as "Gran Torino", but it was still worth watching, imo. I can hardly believe that this man is still acting in and directing great movies at his age (he will be 90 next year)-- what an inspiration he is!!

Maybe because there was a poster on there who was being repeatedly negative. Hopefully she’ll start a new thread soon and the poster has been removed.

I don’t know, but the original thread on that subject was closed at her request. Not sure why those threads aren’t just merged into one long thread, since C-D discourages multiple threads on the exact same topic.

Maybe closing it leaves open the possibility of a third thread on the same topic. Or more.

Guess what. It's against the terms of service to discuss moderator action. You should just DM the mod of this forum and ask your question.

Ok, so this strikes me sort of funny, although, not funny haha, but kind of, you have to laugh or you’d cry. It could be subtitled, “why seniors don’t travel as much as they thought they would.”

This happened to a friend of mine, but it easily could have been dh and I. Everyone is 70 ish.

Friend, friend’s husband, friend’s ex husband and second wife, are close friends and take trips together. They share grandchildren and everyone gets along. They planned a lovely car trip from Ohio to MA and the NE States, staying in nice hotels and booking activities ahead.

Four days before the trip, ex husband collapses and has to be taken to the hospital with severe back spasms. Released in time for the trip. Friend hopes he will cancel, but he would lose too much money. Off they go to Boston for a graduation, and so far, so good. Next stop Lake Champlain. Second wife gets bitten by something and her eye swells shut. Couples spend hours in podunk urgent care. Second wife wants to cancel trip, but they coax her out of it, because they’d lose $900. They hit a few historic houses with lots of stairs and a lot of walking, and my friend, with a replaced hip and knee, sits out most of it.

Today, friend and hubby had plans to go zip lining, but my friend got a bout of vertigo, so I guess her dh went by himself. Or, maybe they all just sat around their scenic lodge scratching all their mosquito bites.
