over the weekend here in the states, maryland we had over 24 inches of snow they fell here. we were snow in for two days, but i had a freind came and plow my driveway for us and made us a path to get out of our court. because they know i have a bad back and neck and im not suppose to be doing this at all. i did do alittle and i ended up with sore back and neck. then got a bad headache as well. but i did help out an older lady who cant do it at all. but yesterday my wife and i noticed another older man who lives alone isnt dug out yet. so i think today since its a day before christmas to go and dig him out and hope i dont hurt myself by doing this. but do you always look out for older people who lives by you through bad weather or whatever. one lady knows she can always call me for help

Where we moved to a couple of months ago there is an eldery couple that lives across the road. I haven't had much contact with them other than a hand wave when we see each other. Do keep an eye on them to make sure that they are okay. I enjoy helping out the eldery. They are the reason that we are here today.. Keep smiling.

It's great that we help out oler people because they can't do as much stuff as our younger people could do. But I don't think I can be in oyur situation because I live somewhere in New York with a lot of buildings to live in, so our clients would help dig out the path for us to walk in whenever it snowed. But I sometimes help my elderly neighbors with functioning electronic things, delivering things, etc. Happy holidays syankee525!
