Re: tolerance of lack of same/ alone

Oh definitely, Gene! I'd say that part of my life is over. I've turned
into the old lady with the cats. I suppose another 30 years of that
might get tiresome, though I'd guess maybe I've only got 20 more coming
to me, if that. I really can't imagine sharing my home with someone else

My older sister is also alone, but she's much more inclined to want
someone with her. She worries about being sick with no one to take her
to hospital. My other sister is married, but you couldn't pay me to live
the life of the Bickersons.
