You don't expect it, but...

One of my recent carers has shut his shed door. One of the very Best TAAAW.

I am going to try to attend his fooneral.

To err is human. To really foul things up requires a computer and the BOFH.

Sorry to hear that, Rusty. If you can't get to the farewell party then a
short note to the next of kin expressing your appreciation would, I'm
sure, be very welcome.

Under the circumstances that's almost a given though my late m-i-l was
still going down to her church to help out with the lunches "for the
old folk" when she herself was in her nineties.

My late mother gave up doing lunches-on-wheels for the WI after she
realised most clients/customers were younger than she was.

Someone on my local neighbourhood group recently asked for recomendations
for a gardener. I happened to know of one and offered contact details.
The enquirer asked how old the gardener was. I had no idea but asked why.
"Because I would be embarrassed with a gardener who was older than me".

I only stopped when the school kitchen stopped providing the meals, but
circumstances were similar.

If you will excuse .....

Maybe you should rename yourself as Creaking Gate or would that put off
potential carers.

Condolences to the dear departed and best wishes etc. to yourself for
2022.

Many thanks for the wishes. I suppose I could combine two wotsits and
create a Mr. Sticky Wicket?

My Mum was happy to go into an old folks home, as she always got on well with old people.
