But, Who Takes Care of the Sewage?

Dad lives in an independent living community.  Last night he asked me who has to take care of the sewage. I hesitated before answering, and he elaborated. He was wondering, he told he, who hooked up the hose for water and the electrical lines where he lives, and was puzzled whether he was supposed to hook up the sewage. He was worried because he knew he hadn't connected any hoses or sewer lines  I realized that Dad was either thinking about the times he traveled on a large sailboat or a motorhome. I guess it isn't that surprising, since I am on the road in our motorhome and tell him about campgrounds we are visiting. Dad was pleasantly surprised when I told him the building, and his apartment, had sewage and water pipes built into it, as well as the electrical wires. He thought that was great!

  2. There's nothing like the modern convenience of electricity, water, & sewage. Isn't it funny how older people get things stuck in their head? That's wonderful you put your dad's mind at ease by removing the concerns of the sewage.

    My FIL will be 90 next month and he does a lot things still on their property, but he does hire help, too. He helps my MIL a lot around the house. She hasn't been able to get rid of those darn shingles (going on 3-years) along with the arthritis in her hip has really slowed her down. It's so sad to see them become so fragile over the last few years.

    Thanks for coming by my place yesterday. It's always a pleasure to visit with you!


I'd love to hear your thoughts!
