Recommended Posts

The guy on the right has pics of family members and a car and the guy on the left has a pic of a monkey? What's up with that? :D

You have to get rid of every thing  , you cannot own anything to be in one of those placeless.

Vise Grips, Channel Locks, Pliers, and a hammer. I think I worked on his car once.

 

Looks too bright and clean to be a nursing home, but it has a vintage steam radiator under the window. Possibly somewhere with socialized medicine?

 Not true.  Limits on assets and income if wanting Medicaid to pay.  No limits for private pay,

here's a better way to pass time in a nursing home. I've had this 1000 piece puzzle about 25 years, made it way back then, found it this week still in original box, so made it over past 5 days while the weather has been nasty. The 1936/37 Cord I consider the best looking and perhaps most desirable Sedan ever produced.

The puzzle is a component of an Inspector Cross Murder Mystery (distributed by bePuzzled, Bloomfield, Ct in 1992). Don't want to give away results of investigation and clues from the puzzle, but if anyone (like some Cord 810 owner) wants the package, box, puzzle (24x30), 10 page mystery story, $10+ ride, send me a PM. BTW, you will note a piece missing in initial picture, since made one see this new picture..

I got a 87 year old into one of those assitsted living places and hung his colleciion of 1932 license tags in the wall and pictures of several of his long gone cars.  He was happy.

Correct. My wife is an RN with 35+ years in nursing homes. The patients are allowed up to limits on assets. And in some nursing homes patients on Medicare are allowed to stock their rooms with furniture and other personal items from home.

 

However, I think there is a limit on hammer sizes you can have in the room.

Just flagrantly let old people keep those items the "Deep State" could have sold to compensate the costs. outrageous! No wonder the national debt is so high.

I guess if they were out of stock at the Cord dealer, you have to make your own.
