Another reason to respect our elders is so we don't have to keep making the same mistakes they did and can learn from the wealth of information they have gleaned just by living as long as they have.

Part of our whole societies problem is that we throw away and disregard the most valuable information afforded us by our elders, putting them in elder care facilities, and not keeping them close by our hearths, in our hearts and in our homes.

The real moral of the story is When two old guys fight lulz will be had by all

I used to think the same thing. Now I find your statement absolutely asinine.

"putting them in elder care facilities, and not keeping them close by our hearths" sounds real good.

Maybe if you walked a mile in my shoes you wouldn't be so quick to judge others....

yes, you struck a nerve..

I have spent the last 2 months doing nothing but looking after my mother who has had multiple strokes and as much as I would love to keep her in my home, it is just not possible. Where the hell do you suggest that I put her, the side of the road?

My heart goes out to you and I understand it is difficult but it is your obligation and responsibility to care for her now. You should keep her in a bed near your own. This is what my mother did with her own mother for 3 long years after a stroke left her crippled and speechless.
If you are without patience, or arms and hands, or the strength to pick her up or feed her, then you should enlist some outside help to help you care for her. There is no shame in doing at least the best you can.

i would only remember a time when you were helpless, had to be carried and watched over every moment. You could not walk, talk, eat or even clean yourself.
How many years did this go on?
Where was your mother then?

You are very lucky, blessed beyond all reason, to have a mother to care for.
Walk a mile in my shoes.

You are mistaken imagining I am judging you. Just stating my opinion.
I know you must be hurting and perhaps overwhelmed. Get some help. A local church perhaps.
Old folks are certainly a handful but worth hanging onto closely for as long as we are able.
That is just the way it should be, not the way it always must be.

Love the Rocky theme playing in the video Randyvs.
I think the young guy was spitting out his teeth!

Everyone already saw this one but it is pretty good too.
