Short Thoughts (52)

The slip-ons made sense.

Too hard to bend and tie laces now.

Elasticated sides made the trousers more comfortable too.

Feeling the cold more these days, but watching the cost of the heating.

A thick cardigan should do the job, no point wasting money.

There might be a nice one in the charity shop.

A good enough reason to go out for a walk.

    1. Sometimes, it is their natural inclination to be frugal. But in most cases, it is an old tradition of not wanting to spend more than they might have available when the bills come in. I think some elderly people need to have their fuel bills paid by the government, so they can stay warm and healthy in the winter. It has to be cheaper than them ending up in hospital.
      Besy wishes, Pete.

    1. That old man broke his wrist, slipping on the ice as he went to buy a cheap cardigan. I picked him up in my ambulance, and he told me that he was leaving his heating off because of the gas bill. I thought it was sad that he had to live like that in his late seventies. Over 40 years later, I haven’t forgotten him, BB.
      Best wishes, Pete.

    1. This was a memory of an ambulance job I did in the 80s, chuq. He broke his wrist on his way to buy a cheap cardigan. People shouldn’t have to live like that when they have worked all their lives.
      Best wishes, Pete.

    1. Someone I picked up when he had fallen on some ice, and broke his wrist. He was on his way to the charity shop to buy a thick cardigan. He told me about his shoes and trousers on the way to the hospital.
      Best wishes, Pete.
