GRANDDAD ~ We Love You !

Wont put You in the Old Folks Home

You can stay with us ~ wont be no fuss

You can chat all day on  yer Mobile Phone !


We know you're old ~ We know you're cold 

Your Arms & Legs rheumatic

We'll fix a bedsit in a downstairs room 

NOT stuck up in the Attic


We know you like some Old Folks Homes

Where your well heeled Friends have gone

Where wine is served with every meal 

And the Ladies outnumber TEN to ONE !

That might seem like Heaven to You

But WILLY WONKA no can do !


We want to keep you Clean & Sweet

We want to make you HAPPY

So please dont wee on our brand new suite

We've bought you a MAN-SIZED NAPPY !


You can eat with us & share with us 

See your GRANDKIDS every day

But when Young ladies visit

Stay in your room & pray !


GRANDAD we Love You

And you wont have to PAY

You can stay with us ~ wont be no fuss

And we'll save a TON* each day !


Thanks for visiting ~ comments welcome ~ LOVE B & A 🧡🧡🧡


*TON = £100 or $130 !  Because Old Folks (Seniors) Homes

can be remote and often with problems. Many Single Seniors 

would prefer to move in with  a Son or Daughter. Better if they

can stay near their own COMMUNITY !  However there are 

problems especially if they need nursing care. The problem in

the UK is that Private Seniors Residential Homes cost in excess

of £1000 ($1300) per Month so a nest egg of £50,000 only

last FOUR YEARS !  Could you ~ would you accommodate your

GRANDDAD ? WE are informed that GRANDMAS are less trouble ? !

    I'm commenting on the assumption that his is intended to be comical. It was great, to be honest. Had no idea that's what it was until I got about halfway through.
    For a second there I was thinking to myself, "These people are trying to take someone's grandpa hostage!" seriously, good stuff. You guys and Finch (Uncle Andy as you call him) really know how to get me. Nice one guys.


      Thanks NICK pleased you liked it ~ it is nostalgic ! Ive added a PIC & A VIDEO ~ please check ! Yours through poetry ~ BRIAN & ANGELA 🧡

        Oops, just noticed a mistake in my grammar. COUGH. "THIS" as it it's supposed to be read xD haha. oh well. I'll check them out.

      • Michael Edwards

        Now this really is a big problem and it hits you hard the older you get. You've summed it up well.
        DODECAHEXA ?

        • ANGELA & BRIAN

          Thanks UNCLE MIKE we intended it to be humerous but also realistiuc ! 26 (DODECAHEXA) is the number of lines for an ABCDarian Poem but all the LETTERS are in the WRONG order. Thanks for your comment. We've added a PICTURE & A VIDEO ~ please revisit ~
          Thanks B & A 🧡🧡🧡🧡

          • ANGELA & BRIAN

            Thanks Uncle Steve ~ pleased you enjoyed it ! You should have payed more attention in LATIN ~ 20 lines \"Dulce et dicipere en loco\" ~ OK ~
            Blessings B & A 🧡🧡🧡🧡

            • orchidee

              Loco? You catching a train?! I only know a smidgeon: 'Carpe Diem', and I thought that was about going fishing? Carp?! lol.

            • Nicholas Browning

              "And in the process I crack my shin" Haha, good stuff.

              Well done you two for highlighting a vital need when folk get too old to care for things properly - - you have hearts of gold and they show in this tribute to the families who themselves look after their elders.

              • ANGELA & BRIAN

                YOURS BRIAN & ANGELA 🧡🧡🧡🧡

                THANKS FAY ~ Pleased you appreciated the intended message behind the Poem. Several of our Church Members have a aged parent or Maiden Aunt living with them. My parents tell me that in Liverpool it was much more common than it is today ! Some "Old Folks Homes" are OK and Angela & I love to visit to sing & speak to them ! They love a Programme on the 60's Stars like Jim Reeves NKC & Johnny Cash etc. The problem today (compared with the 1950's) is that Families have moved apart & even abroad and also many Seniors are childless and on their own ! Living in a Family does enable them to interact with their Grandchildren and Extended Family ! AOP's in OPH's can be very lonely !
                Blessings & Love through Poetry

                I am having to go through this situation with Joyce and her dementia it is at the stage where I am struggling at home and she will have to go into a care home on a permanent basis before I crack up as well. It is so very hard to deal with dementia I would not wish it in anybody,

                • ANGELA & BRIAN

                  THNAKS FOR YOUR COMMENT ~ UNCLE ANDY ! We love the fact that you have shared with us ~ Your continuing great Love for your beloved Joyce ~ but also the fact that she is in essence living in a World of her own. Because we are Church Workers & Home visitors (when Angela is back in Essex) we do share & pray with Couples (on a rota) on of whom has Dementia ~ so we see and share in the Problem first hand. In several cases they have reluctantly had to place their Loved One in a Care Home. We also visit in the Care Home ~ in some cases they know who we are ~ OK. As CHRISTIANS we all respect the decision our FellowChristians hve taken ~ for the sake of sanity ! Euthanasia is another matter all together and personally ~ as Christians ~ we believe it is contrary to God\'s word to deliberately terminate another persons life ~ AMEN
                  Every Blessing for the future
                  You & Joyce are always on the Prayer list
                  Love in the Spirit Brain & Angela 🧡🧡🧡🧡🧡
