Just Watch Your Bum

I went to see my elderly dad. age 95, this morning at his assisted living facility. Dad's table mate during breakfast seemed like a very nice gentleman. I asked this fellow diner, in his late 80s or early 90s, his name. He replied, "You can call me Casey Jones, and I come from Alabama!" Sent Sis an email regarding this "nice" man, and Sis sent me a warning regarding Mr. Casey Jones. "Casey Jones, he was going after Helen one day, I thought he and Dad were going to come to blows. Casey is a pastor, his son took over the church in town, right over by Ace Hardware on Quincy. Casey is a flirt and a grabber. But he's nice...just watch your bum." So, the next time I run into Casey Jones, I will watch my bum! Image: Pixabay public domain (no attribution required)

While I wouldn't want him grabbing my bum, it wouldn't make me mad either since he's at that age.

Yes, it is humorous so might as well get a good laugh from it.

@Corbin5 Now if it was a young guy on the street, he would get pinched right back and not in a good way.

I do not know who is flirting more in retirement homes : men are more rare than women and my father was always surrounded by many women. I believe it is a good reason to want to reach the century if you are a man. It is nice that you have still your dad. Mine has an Alzheimer disease in his last years, but he finally enjoyed the retirement home where he was...

I am sorry your Dad is no longer with you. My dad has dementia, and does really well during the day, but when "sun-downing," the time when those with dementia get really agitated in late afternoon or early evening, he can be a handful for staff. Got a call in the evening, and they said Dad was having a hard time and was very upset. I am just so glad that the staff is so experienced and can handle him.

@RubyHawk I cannot tell that they are encouraging it in France, but they are not discouraging it.

@topffer it used to be that it was highly discouraged for the sexes to mix in nursing home, I'm glad they are lightening up. Patients might be old and sick, but they are still people with feelings.

There seems to many pastors and other religious folks who are not upstanding people.

haha, this shows that people never change, even when they are old! Once a flirt, always a flirt! I think those town folks respected him as a pastor, else a few good punches will turn him from a flirt into a proper gentleman.

I got my bummed grabbed by a 95-year-old woman during a gig at an old-folks home once. It was actually a pretty delightful moment. I'll have to do a post about it.

I will watch my bum for sure. My dad would have a fit if he saw anyone do that to me or my sister. Even at age 95, he would be a force to be reckoned with.
