sometimes the phrase whats on my mind baffles me as if I wrote some of the thing on my mind it would be dull as dishwate r.lol Just remembered a co worker named' Marcy who was concerned about her husband They were in their eighties and seemed to' be very intelligent But Dale. her husband came to the library just as we were opening all upset. He had driven to the supermarket but came out he could not find his car. He wanted to know if she had taken his car. She was really shocked as he see med to have changed but it was not long before he was' diagnosed with Alzheimer disease, I felt so sorry for them as their adult children were too far away to help her. She had to quit work to care for him and i often wondered how they made out,When I was retired I was told by all the staff we will keep in touch I never heard form any of them it was as'iof now I was widowed they would have nothing to'do with me as they all had families and I was a widow. Such memories of fellow workers sad yet sweet as I had worked there 23 years. I ask fellow mylotters have you found that you no longer keep in touch with your fellow single workers when they leave work? Is it because t hey no longer have mates?

@Hatley .....You could meet them some place. I guess some people don't like the atmosphere. Sad.

I think it's just as people leave a job, the old connections get less and less, not so much if they are married or single. Facebook helps with people stay more in touch
