Infusing more life into life


Up on the roof and other physical feats of a 77 year old.

September 2, 2018

So, I was talking to my Dad yesterday. And he said that “you never see young people on the street anymore. Not one who looks willing to hold a ladder, so I can go up on the roof and put up a new antenna”.

“Young people nowadays” he says. Pauses. “Good thing my friend Conrad called. Had him in mind to help me out.”

Should I remind my Dad that he is almost 77?

Better yet, he has cable and dish. I have no idea what he signal or beloved show he gets on his antenna, short wave radio, and all other gadgets that he tinkers with.

My mother would’ve 🙄 — “He’s on the roof again.”

I am laughing too at the part where he is looking for a unsuspecting young person to give up an hour of their life to hold the ladder for him.

It’s like straight out of some sitcom.
