Oh, I hope, I hope, I hope...

I live in OH-2 - no change likely this year.

Wonderful at bedtime, with a little milk to wash down night-time meds....

I can't help thinking Eric Prince's goons may be behind those gas-masks...

Sisters of Notre Dame de Namur - 1-12 grade; RSHM - college.

Trinity College in Washington DC, with Sisters of Notre Dame de Namur, is Nancy Pelosi's alma mater. - I think she's brilliant in thought and speech. - Never loses her cool.

The world is not aware of the good they have done and continue to do.

They live out their missions unnoticed, especially after their public work done.

It's easier to draw a cartoon of "Sister" with a ruler in hand than to recognize their service.
Even unto death and beyond, as many have donated their brains and their bodies to science, to further human knowledge.

The Lincoln Project ads are aired frequently on local TV stations in SW Ohio.

They must believe there is a good chance that Ohio can be swung to the Dems...

I guess If one lives in a solid Dem or rock-hard Rep. area, they're not going to waste the money...

Would that be Eric Prince's mercenaries?

You know, Betsy DeVos's brother...

I'm in your age bracket and have given the subject some thought.

My daughter (58) has been living in a long-term care facility for 4yrs; my spouse was in nursing care for the last 6 yrs of his life before that, and previous to that, my mother in memory care for 9 yrs. I've seen a lot of what day-to-day life in those facilities is like.

Although you are looking at independent living, as I would be as well, the Covid crisis has led me to determine that I will stay away from such congregate living as long as possible. The reason, - you give up a certain control of your life to others and their "rules". I understand, rules and standards (appropriate dress at meal-time, for example) are necessary and good. I just don't want to be obligated when I don't feel like it on any given day. I go along with community standards as a way of living, and, in fact, am non-confrontational as a rule ( except when I have to defend my daughter in her living situation - aides and staff can be less than kind at times).

There may come a time when health and medical needs require that I get the care required in a congregate setting, either assisted living or nursing care. Like you, I can afford my independent home at present and with the help of other family members I get by on the maintenance. I believe I would prefer to have part-time help in my home to living with the rules set by others for the common good of the group.

Thank you, Peggy. The compassion shown is so reflective of you and your compassion. nt
