Default The Door Prize...funny!!

When we get older we think differently, don't we? This letter was sent to the Principals office after the school had sponsored a luncheon for the elderly. An elderly lady received a new radio at the lunch as a door prize and was writing to say thank you. This story is a credit to all humankind. Forward to anyone you know who might need a lift today..

Dear Kean Elementary:
God bless you for the beautiful radio I won at your recent senior citizens luncheon. I am 84 years old and live at the Sprenger Home for the Aged. All of my family has passed away. I am all alone now and it's nice to know that someone is thinking of me. God bless you for your kindness to an old forgotten lady. My roommate is 95 and has always had her own radio, but before I received one, she would never let me listen to hers, even when she was napping.

The other day her radio fell off the night stand and broke into a lot of pieces. It was awful and she was in tears. Her distress over the broken radio touched me and I knew this was God's way of answering my prayers. She asked if she could listen to mine, and I told her to kiss my ***.
Thank you for that opportunity.

So funny! My friend was in rehab in a nursing home and her roomie played the most god-awful music at full blast on her radio which she refused to turn down. That was worse, I think.

Thanks for the laugh!! It's like being in grade school all over again!! Probably the way I would have handled it too!! When I get that old I'm not taking any garbage from anybody. Karma always gets you one way or another!!
