Another Retirement Home Event

I did another presentation at a retirement community yesterday. Since I used a microphone, most of the people could hear me. Afterwards during the question and answer session, we got into a discussion of geezer romance. One resident questioned the unique circumstances of Paul Jacobson (my protagonist) having a romantic tryst. One of the ladies in the back piped up and said, “Aw, that’s nothing. After my grandmother died, my octogenarian grandfather who lived in West Virginia used to walk five miles into town every Saturday night for a woman. Then afterwards, he’d walk five miles back.”
