When we went to visit MamaSquirrel’s grandmother in the hospital, Squirrelly, Jr., and I went out for a walk in the area. One of the places we passed was the nursing home next to the hospital. Teh Boy pointed out something odd.
“I didn’t know people still had propane tanks,” he said.
“Oh, sure they do,” I replied.
“Yeah, but not in town (Somerville), I didn’t think.”
“Good point,” I said.
“Maybe it’s for emergencies,” he mused rather sagely.
Then, as I looked at the tank, I noticed something else.
“They have a smoker, too,” I said.
“Man, this is a high end nursing home,” he replied.
