Why I Do Not Live in an Age Restricted Community

Meet Joe and Cruz. Together their ages add up to ninety-three. They are respectively the oldest and youngest residents in my neighborhood of twenty-two townhouses.

Returning from a walk recently, I walked past Joe's house where he was outside socializing with a neighbor and his young son, Cruz. Cruz was in his dad's arms. I stopped to say hello to all three. Shortly thereafter, Cruz's dad said, "Time to go home for a nap, Cruz," and Cruz thrust his arms pleadingly toward Joe. Of course, Joe extended his arms, which brought about this photo-op. It was too wonderful to pass up.
