Haven't been writing lately as I have had to take care of some legal problems that I really can't discuss per my lawyer...Imagine that. I did learn that when you tell someone to call your lawyer the effect is quite entertaining. My Joe looked very impressive in court. I have to talk about that. He is my Tony Soprano. The most attractive quality any man can have is the ABILITY TO GET IT DONE! If you have that quality a girls panties are already trying to wiggle off. The only problem is that I wish he could be like that all the time. We argue quite a bit, mostly over things I know I have told him and he swears I am lying simply because he can't remember. That is very frustrating. When we went to the lawyers office I was so very happy because his attitude was proper and the way it is when he is fresh and rested. I wish he could be like that all the time. These days he is turning so very bitter. It is frustrating. He claims at the age of 76 he no longer has to be polite and civil. He has done it for too many years and no longer has the patience. I am not 76 so I can't speak for his state of mind. Ever since he was let go (forced into early retirement) I have watched his moods and state of mind disintegrate. Ageism is huge in the US and I am sure all over the globe. It doesn't seem like a big deal until you watch someone you love deal with it first hand. I have spent this whole week at his house getting some grocery shopping done, making sure he picks up his lawnmower, and just keeping him good company. Bought him some nice manly new sheets and wash-cloths. Things men never think about.
I now know why lawyers drive beautiful cars and live in fabulous homes. My legal bill is $15,000. Joe lives in a very upscale part of PA, referred too as the "Mainline"...The main attraction is The King Of Prussia Mall..Uber expensive. All top of the line brand name stores...(boutiques) Michael Kors, Coach...you get the picture. From past experience I have learned the importance of having a lawyer who is well known and at the top of the game in town. Explains vividly why most people who land in prison are poor and can't afford the "right" lawyer. There are many decent public defenders, but there are many who are burnt out. So if you are poverty stricken and relying on state supplied legal defense it is like shooting craps. The odds in any casino are with the house.
So just taking my life one day at a time. Lately always expecting the unexpected. Par for the human life course. People just seem to be oblivious to each other. This seems to be the true ME generation. No one has time to help their neighbors anymore. God knows, they are simply too busy with their own myriad of problems. I refuse to become a cynic because I know there are still decent people out there. They just lock their doors now. Peace!
