My 92 year old father-in-law moved in with us 2 1/2 years ago.
I truly enjoy having him with us.
I also really enjoy my conversations with him.
He wears a hearing aid ~ when he wants to.
I'd like to share a short conversation I had with him Tuesday evening.
Tuesday was one of those days he didn't want to wear his hearing aid!
Dad: Dinner was good.
Me: Thanks ~ how about some ice cream for dessert.
Dad: I'll have some in about an hour.
One Hour Later
Me: Here's your ice cream.
Dad: Well, thank you!
Me: There's two scoops of Coffee and one scoop of Dulce Delish.
Dad: Don't tip the dish?
Me: No, (speaking slowly) Dulce Delish. It's a new flavor Mandy picked up.
Dad: (shaking his head & looking at his bowl of ice cream) I don't know about Coffee and fish!
The bowl is empty and he's enjoying a little nap.
The older the redwoods, the more majestic. The older wines and cheeses are, the more they are praised and honored for taste. Should it not hold true that the older a man, the more he is to be appreciated by others.
