Recently, I sent my grandmother an early Christmas present. She's 89 & lives in a nursing home a few states away. The nursing home she lives in is one of those really nice but quiet places, so quiet you could hear a pin drop......from the other side of the building!
The silence is just too much for her, considering she originally came from a big, noisy city, & just wished she had something to help her pass the time with a little more sound while she engaged in activities @ the nursing home. So; I bought her a little transistor radio complete with batteries & sent it to her along with a Christmas card. I figured why wait for 2 more weeks to go by until she could enjoy her Christmas present? She could have it right now & be able to pass the time & have a little more enjoyment in her day. Just yesterday, I received a letter from her along with her own little present for me, thanking me for the radio. It reads:
I just received your Christmas present & I wanted to write you a letter telling you how much I appreciate this little radio! I can sit back & enjoy the local oldies station while I crochet or having fun in the home's activity center. It really brightens up a little old lady's day to be able to listen to songs your grandpa & I used to listen to when your parents were just kiddies!
For awhile, my roomate, Loretta, had a little radio almost the same as the one you got me. She's a few years older than me, 93, & has always been a little on the mean side to me. She never let me listen to her little radio, even while she was taking a nap & it made me sad not being able to have a little enjoyment, especially on rainy days when we couldn't go outside. The day after I received your radio, hers had broken after she dropped it. She then asked me if she could use my radio & I said "Eat s%#t & die, mother*#$^er!!!". I love this little radio! Thank you so much, Cory! You certainly made me happy!
P.s.- Obama's healthcare plan hasn't helped me a bit, so I couldn't send any money due to paying for my prescriptions. Enclosed are a few gold teeth I had saved from your grandfather after he passed away. I'm sure you could get a couple dollars & buy yourself a milkshake. Love you!
