Friday 55

It's time to play "Write a story in 55 words".  And if you do, be sure to let the G-Man know. 

And yes, I know I'm late.  But hey, it's still Friday, right?  And I'll visit you Saturday.  Right after I check up on the hubby catching a bad head cold, the dog with a NEW strain of Kennel Cough, laundry and canning homemade cranberry sauce.  It'll feel good to sit and visit for a while after that.



Great!  First it was politicians.  Then "false prophets" fleecing their sheep.  Now it's

Relatives!  

Especially ones with no patience.  No plan.  No clue.

Everywhere I go, someone has their hand out wanting easy money.

Depressing, isn't it?  What's wrong with the world?

You look twice and you can see the writing on the wall.

The worst is when somebody dies and all the greedy relatives come out of the woodwork, looking to get something. (And it's even worse when there's no Will!)

Nifty 55, Hope!

Very interesting debate on the radio a few days ago about voluntary agencies setting up to find young people to visit old people that are in care homes and the like.
So many employees rang in/e-mailed to say how many of their residents received no visitors whatsoever, and then upon their death a load of relatives suddenly appeared...

And the 55? Funny, but oh, so sadly, true.

And forgot to mention, not so concerned about hubby but yikes to the kennel cough. Titus has never had it, but my big departed dog, Conan, did once - he had to share with two of a brother's Jack Russells. Best luck with it, I hate the sound!
