D&d Love Will Find a Way

While out walking Jose, I met some interesting new neighbors, Don and Delores. They had just bought a house that had been vacant for awhile.

It is very hard to judge age but I thought that they were at least ninety. They are engaged and plan to live together without marrying for awhile. Delores confided that it was going to take them a long time to get properly
moved in. Don is using his scooter with a trailer to move a few things every day it is warm enough.

It was warm enough yesterday to walk Jose and again they were moving two or three items at a time
via the scooter and trailer.

I really admire their spirit and am tickled at their desire to defy convention and live together for a while. Instead of sinking into helplessness, they are making life worth while for themselves. I hope my sweet neighbor who just lost his wife will find himself a "fiance" soon. Of course I am probably older than they are but I love their spirit and can do attitude. I am
betting that they will get moved in sooner than they think if sheer persistence is a factor. Imagine just
moving at a snails pace.

Do you know any younger people who could help them move in? Someone's teen-ager not averse to doing a good deed?

They have a son with all the equipment but I think they don't mind the slow pace. They are moving out of his house which is a block from theirs.

The title made me think you were about to talk about Dungeons & Dragons. This is better... hope they keep going on their scooters

They are so earnest about not needing to marry that I get tickled.

They're probably 75 - you're so young for your age anyone who seems older than you must be 90. I have a friend from Hawaii whom I think of as being 50 or 55, and it always shocks me when I'm reminded she's 69 going on 70.

Thanks. I see all the wrinkles and the love handles but you and my Dr. make me feel better.

That is a sweet story and I’m also happy for them

They are so nice. They just move a little slower and try a little harder.
