He Hasn’t Lost His Sense of Humour

dave and his dad

We spent some time at the nursing home in Leamington yesterday visiting Dave’s Dad who is 93.  We  chatted with Dad at the lunch table and met the women who share it. Two of them are new since the last time we visited. Gertrude is 101 years old and told us about her granddaughter who is a doctor. Margaret has a nephew who lived in Hong Kong  just like we did. Later we went to Dad’s room to visit some more. When it was time to go we said good-bye promising to return the next day. Just as the elevator doors were about to close we saw Dad coming down the hall heading our way with his walker. He joined us in the elevator. He was going down to the lobby to sit there for a bit to look out the big windows and observe the people going by. My sister-in-law Linda said to him, “I thought you would take a nap.”

Dad got a big grin on his face. “Naps are for old people,” he said.
