    I'm so happy to hear that the place he now is living is taking better care of their tenants. In our loved one's later years, they shouldn't have to be concerned with such things as you described. Even being younger, for me it'd be scary if I lived in a place where druggies were hanging about, let along shooting up near where I lived. I'm thrilled you found such a place. It's hard some times for me to remember that the internet opens doors to folks from all over the place. Lol, I don't often pay attention to where they live, yes, all countries have different rules of thumb and laws. It seems, maybe because it's just the right thing to do, that all countries should have laws to protect the most vulnerable. It's good he has you guys to watch his back. I feel better now that I hear he's full after eating and his place is less costly--all worked out well; I'm a happy camper.

    WoW, WoW, and WOW!! That place sounds amazing!! Thanks for the sharing of this.

    I'm in BC, too. Four words....normal wear and tear. It's in the Landlord/Tenant act.

    I am in Kelowna as well. :) Yes, there is no way they have a leg to stand on with this if we have to legally dispute this. It is just frustrating that they would do this in the first place. My father in law has us to step up for him, but lots of elderly have no one and $1600 is no small amount.

    Oh man! That sounds incredible! There should be places like this for our seniors everywhere.

    I agree. I've never seen anything anywhere like it. Seniors in walkers would stop to ask us if we were lost or needed help finding something. So nice. AND happy! Oh, and the food was tops! The large dining hall was open to the public. They had prime rib dinner on Thursday night for $16.00.

    The elevator to Mom's floor opened to a large community area with an on-going jigsaw puzzle and a grand piano -- a concert pianist lived in one of the units and often played for them. One of the residents was a guitarist from a well-know band of the 60's/70's that I liked but can't think of at the moment. :(

    Sometimes the hours between 7 AM & 7 PM go by so fast I think I must have been abducted by aliens and my memory of the event erased. :hairpulling:

    Get yourself a mouse cup. I had one in the house as well the cats were playing with. Scoop it right up with the cup and take it outside and across the street to the vacant lot.

    Of course now my one cat is going to end up breaking my tv trying to get on top of the cabinet I set the mouse cup on while I was finding my shoes. She thinks it's still there and is determined to get her "friend" back

    I went to the Cemetary today to check on my Step Dads marker. It was not the marker I ordered. I am so f........mad. I asked to have a Veteran's Bronze marker and it is a cheap Vetren's granite marker. Why would I want a granite when I could get a Bronze. I am so freak'in mad. Rose Hills will be hearing from me. Why should I be surprised after everything else that is happening? :hairpulling::hairpulling::hairpulling::hairpulling:
