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.
I'm Sara Glerum (also known as Sallie), and there's almost nothing I'd rather do than opine. Some of my earlier posts are long personal essays, but most of the newer ones are small commentaries on daily living. I love hearing from my readers.
