Have you seen my wife?

Some things just give me a lump in my throat when I visit the seniors in some nursing homes. Like today for instance:


Hey Miss, where are you going?

I am just staying here, Elvin. I am doing an old television commercials program. Have a seat and you will enjoy it. I have commercials about Winston cigarettes, Chrevrolet, Texaco, Halo shampoo…..all from the 1950’s. I think you will remember the old advertising jingles.

Have you seen my wife?

No, I haven’t, Elvin.

Oh, shucks.

Very despondently he wandered over and sat on a couch. The activity director said that he did not have a wife. She passed away several years ago.
