One tends to forget that at an elderly age, there is a high percentage of illness and death that even a monthly Social Security check will not cover. So if two people merge and one passes, the average cost of a funeral is about $8000 and SS pays $255. So who pays the rest? Or if one has an extended stay in a nursing facility, then who pays? I have been there and done that and don't intend to do it again just for "romance" or any other reasons.
I don't consider that scenario to be cheap, but just more feasible economically to live apart in one's declining years. It makes the times two people can be together even more sweeter and less worry and trouble free. Call it cheap if you like, it makes no difference to me and won't change anything.

Most health insurance plans cover only the first 100 days of skilled nursing care and if much more than that is needed, I certainly would not want to burden some "partner" with that expense on my behalf.
Dog is back from the tree and chasing the boondock boogers, so good night/morning to all.

8. Stop being hateful to every single visitor who drops by this thread with a comment or question you do not approve of.
9. Stop calling everybody out of your little circle "trolls" because as Una told you, you do not own this thread and everybody doesn't have to have your permission or approval to speak.
10. Crabbiness makes a person look like a bitter old hag.
#86476 Feb 25, 2013
Go back to your political thread and sling your crap WKY. You are still mad that Una wouldn't warm up to you and outted you out for the troll that you are. Most of those ignorant comments are you spinning your location just like you did when Una was here. The only bitter old hag that is here is you.
#86477 Feb 25, 2013
Nailed it! The response proves so.
#86478 Feb 25, 2013
Nailed it....now try your AOL spin to post somemore useless comments or trash AW like you have been doing with your sick little attempts at poems. Una had you pegged right from the beginning. You are not fooling anyone. I nailed it calling you a troll, because that is what you are. Now buzz off.

Louisville's own....should have worn a sleek dress that wasn't bigger than she was and maybe she wouldn't have tripped going up the steps to get her award. She has a good sense of humor though. Up and rising star from KENTUCKY.
Jennifer Lawrence wins Best Actress Oscar for "Silver Linings"
LOUISVILLE, Ky.ó The Academy awarded her best actress and she's from right here in Louisville.
Jennifer Lawrence, 22, took home the coveted award Sunday night for her role in "Silver Linings Playbook."
Lawrence spent two seasons with Walden Theater when she was just 14, before moving to New York City, where she was discovered.
On Sunday night, Lawrence received a standing ovation when she accepted the award, but the star joked that it was only because she tripped up the steps on her way to the stage.
Lawrence became the second youngest actress to ever take home the award for best actress.
She also won the Golden Globe for best actress last month for her role in the film "Silver Linings Playbook."
Lawrence attended Kammerer Middle School.
She's known to millions across the world as Katniss Everdeen -- the heroine of the movie series "Hunger Games."
ďShe was a pretty intuitive actress and she did command a lot of focus on the stage. She did sort of have a natural instinct for drawing focus, which is something that you don't really--you can teach it but it takes a long time,Ē said Walden Theater artistic director Charlie Sexton.
It's not the first time Lawrence has been nominated for an Academy Award. She received a nod back in 2010 for her role in the independent film "Winter's Bone."

When I clicked on local news channel to see the above news they had a small reference to that murder I told you about a couple days ago at Fort Knox. Apparently, he shot her, then himself while their two small children were present. Really sad.
Army releases names of husband, wife fatally shot

I'm feeding my birds this morning. What fat little Robins we have this year. I hope they make nests near me so I can see the fat little babies.
#86484 Feb 25, 2013
Well bird threaders I am off to a doctor's appt and enjoy the temps getting in the 50's today. Going to do lunch with my best friend and stop by sister's house on the way home. I hope all of you have a wonderful day, except the pest who insist on stirring the crap under different names and locations.
Enjoy the day, I will. lol

The skinwalker is only ONE spirit you released, the rest are much older, ancient souls. You cannot pray, you cannot live, NOTHING, can help you now. Even a Shaman cannot help you. ONLY a practitioner can stop this, and I, am not inclined. They seek all that was done to a KEEPER WHO FED THEM. You have awakened an evil as old as time itself. When the spring rains and storms come, the wind, will carry them, I see your storys, and tales, and you dont understand, Bath County executives.....THERE ARE MUCH WORSE THINGS THAN DEATH. But this, you will learn soon enough. YOU, are just DINNER. Even the birds are not safe. But YOU did this, welcome to the Spirit World

<--- Checking in.
Everything in here seems to be okay and appears reasonably sane. And almost everyone is accounted for.
---> Logging out and going back to bed... Don't feel well again today. Something's gotta give around here pretty soon, I'm SO tired of feeling half way to dead every single day.
Chat later, taters.

#86494 Feb 25, 2013
Fortunately, I do have pretty good health Nope. I realized last night how the stars were plenty and the moon lovely and full and that simply was contentment for me. It would be nice sometimes if getting a hot cup aromatic tea and walking around just to enjoy life would be so easy. At times it's not and for Folks with high risk medical issues, getting around is difficult. All you can do is hang in there Dear One, I do wish you ,Lala, AW & AB well. Especially you at this time. May the birdie quartet and the warm sun ease the aches in your bones. Give your heart more strength to carry on. Love and peace to you, health and contentment. My Blessings as always;)

You own horses as well. My daughter has been wanting a white horse for a year now. However, we live the city life unfortunately. Thanks for your rays of sunshine. Your aura speaks volumes as I feel with your opinions or statements. Nope is a great gal like the other posters as well. It's nice to have another bird to communicate with us ;) Enjoy the day!

I've been away for quite some time so I missed the part about when someone originally said Una passed away. I noticed a post under Una's handle in another thread because I thought this was some mistake.
I miss Una. He made me laugh a lot. I don't think he took this message board all that seriously. I think he enjoyed people and his antagonizing was just for fun.
If someone is using his handle, shame shame shame on them. They will never be able to live up to the great Una name brand he built. Una was a topix posting legend. He was a third of the Triple Threat along with Imposter and myself.
Una was a man of free speech and didn't cry foul towards others and report those who constantly reported himself and his friends. To me, this guy had a big heart. With that being said, thanks for the many wonderful memories, Una. You will be missed, my grand topix friend.
And speaking of Imposter, has anyone heard from him lately?
