===========================================
.
I knew this couple, many, many
years ago, and this is what the
husband told me when I asked about
life had been like at home before the
transfer to an assisted living apartment.
His wife didn’t seem to think anything
unusual about being cared for by the
hired hand.  She told me that “the man”
(what she called her husband)
wasn’t her husband as her husband was
“much younger and very handsome.
