That's good. Hygiene is important.

Kind of a sad story out of Jackson Michigan. His kids lived blocks away and hadn't talked to him in some 18 months.

I was planning to joke around about this but then I read the whole article.

It’s not funny anymore; just sad, and a little poignant.

And no, I didn’t misspell pungent.

(Well, ok, maybe one *little* joke.)

Wasn’t there a Faulkner short story on a similar theme?

I used to do lawn work for an elderly woman a few miles from this one. She had a life sized doll that she said kept her company. She wasn’t crazy, just lonely plus she used the doll as a means of security.

She has not been arrested but is being investigated for financial fraud. Chase admits cashing Zigler’s benefit checks after his death.

Well allrighty then - at least there was a method to her madness.
