Alice is doing a fill in today....a couple of serious, one light.

Today, at Charity Resale, a local Toms River thrift shop where profits go to fight hunger, I  was volunteering as I do every Wednesday morning, and visited with two friends as we priced donations in the workroom. 

One of us just went through a very difficult time with her husband who has COPD. The  other friend told of how her husband had survived throat cancer, and we all agreed  that people in their thirties and forties cannot understand why our age group often doesn't commit to upcoming events. They are busy with paying mortgages, raising their children, and are not, for the most part, faced with the upcoming death of a mate or a longtime friend. Death is  always a part of our world.  

Well, we are faced with unpleasantries, okay, but as time passes, our sense of humor and patience grows. For an example, our neighbor was having a fit because a dog urinated on someone's lawn. Hey, send that dog over to my yard anytime. Saves watering the crab grass!
