  2. […] The old man buttoned his cardigan and fold his arms around him into a hug. It was a frigid night, and his every limb ached a bit. The earth in his yard was frozen solid so navigating it would be tempting a broken hip. His usual ‘cribbage party’ down the street was going to have to ‘deal him out’. Any outing was definitely not in his cards tonight. As he poked the fire in his personally handmade fireplace, he took pleasure in listing his lifelong accomplishments one by one. Even though he was alone, he was safe, and his mind was still sound. A pageant of memories was still blessedly available, so he poured himself of glass of wine and took a long stroll down memory lane as he also ‘drank in’ the warmth of the fire. Before he ‘turned in’, he spoke out loud for the first time all day. “Life is good, by golly.”https://mindlovemiserysmenagerie.wordpress.com/2022/01/22/same-same-but-different-saturday-mix-22-ja… […]
