A lot has been happening in my life since I gave up driving my car. Ted thought it would be a good idea for me to move into a place called Linden Ponds, for older people like me. You get two meals a day in a dining room and there are buses that carry you if you have friends that live in other buildings.
This means I must sell my condominium at Weymouthport. The realtor has arranged an “Open House” so people can come and look at it. Here is a picture of my living room, which has a nice view of the harbor and boats.
The visitors will be coming from 1:00 to 3:00 in the afternoon. I will take a book and a magnifying glass to read it while the visitors are here. My eyesight has become so bad I can’t write checks or read the TV Guide without the help of the magnifying glass. I have only one “good” eye, and my mother always worried that I would injure it and be too blind to take care of myself. Now old age has done what she was afraid of.I will be happy and relieved when this place is sold and I can begin the difficult task of getting rid of a lot of stuff I won’t need to bring with me. Tim’s wife Kathy said she would help me. The rest of the family promise they will help, too.
