Who remembers when they first heard Eleanor Rigby? Did you smile sadly, knowing your life would never be like hers or Father Mackenzie’s? How do you feel about that now?
I always wondered why Eleanor didn’t just move in with the Father, so maybe neither one of them would be so lonely. Maybe also they’d have someone to care for, and she wouldn’t have to be picking up wedding rice for her next meal.
Eleanor Rigby, picks up the rice
In the church where a wedding has been
Lives in a dream
Songwriters: John Lennon / Paul McCartney

With costs rising and all of us aging (well, the lucky ones anyway) sharing homes has become more of a ‘thing’ with some people reaching out to long time friends or even strangers. A quick search brought a wealth of information, such as an article in the AARP magazine.
I mentioned in the last blog about an old friend moving in with me. The process is slow, neither one of us is a spring chicken and I’ve managed to fill my life with various activities. But she’s settling in and in a few weeks of fresh air and physical activity her health is improving. Good times ahead for sure.
A fire in Arizona is affecting air quality and sunsets here. The reason is sad but the result is stunning
I’m off on Agility adventures. I’ll let you know how we do
