I held up a piggy bank and asked the residents this question. Are you a spender or a saver?
I was a saver. I saved my money for my grandchildren so they could go to college.
I am a spender. I like to buy everything, especially at Lane Bryant.
IF SOMEBODY GAVE YOU FIFTY DOLLARS RIGHT NOW, WHAT WOULD YOU DO WITH IT?
I would go to the doctor’s.
I would go to the A&P. (A popular supermarket from the 1960’s) I would buy all of the fixing’s for a meal for my family.
I would buy some of the food I like. I would buy new clothes.
I would buy some presents and help my family.
Hmmmm. amazing, the doctor part. I guess they are used to going to their former physicians, the ones they went to when they were HOME.
The ones that knew them over the years, knew all about their medical history and about their familes.
Not just one person gave the responses listed above. They were the ones spoken by many residents.
