    He's going to deport anyone over sixty  five , he feels that they are the least represented  ,  cost the tax payers the most and that if he deports them , they will not remember where they had  lived anyway !

    Do you agree ?

    Can you point me to  my house please ?

          Sure. Walkers are allowed. So that is my name - Phyllis! Thanks for reminding me, Ed. How are you?
          Hope you have a very Merry Christmas - wherever we are deported to. I will get out my walker and we can travel together to .... ?

      This is just a hyperbolic rumor.  Yet another hyperbolic conspiracy theory arise.  Have a Merry Christmas, Ahorseback.

        Ah! I looked up that big word - exaggerated rumor is all it is?  Heck, I was all packed and ready to go, as long as Ed goes with me. I was thinking we might be sent to that new planet they found close to Earth that may be habitable. Just think of all the things we could create and plant in our new home.

        Merry Christmas, Grace.

          During WWI, in the darkest days of trench warfare, the opposing armies consistied of, primarely, Germany against the rest of Western Europe. The individual combatants, after a year of savage fighting, come out from safety of their trenches during Christmas Eve, to visit the enemy's trench under a flag of truce. There they would  share cigarettes, rations, alcohol and swap a story of two. Good cheer among men spread around on an otherwise dismal scene for just one day. For a moment, men celebrating what they could share instead of what they could capture. Such a gesture shows that our common humanity can not be denied  even during our  darkest hours.

          In that spirit, I offer a truce and wish you and yours a Merry Christmas and happy New Year.  Just try not to post anything else for a while, go sing Christmas carols or something....

        It's ok.  We Oldies are pretty resourceful.  We can do mental arithmetic; spell and punctuate with correct grammar; go back to washing our clothes by hand; bake a cake that has not come out of a packet; be satisfied with unadulterated porridge oats followed by a simple boiled egg for breakfast; cook fresh vegetables for lunch; walk to the shop that's only half a mile away instead of hopping into the car; say a warm Please or Thankyou without expecting to be paid for it; write a letter of thanks, congratulations or condolence without using a "puter" or the Ethernet;  and we still know how to save up for something we desire instead of going to the sharks for a life-destroying loan.
        And if any young person approaches us for a caring response and unconditional love, he or she has a very high chance of getting it.
        The Golden Door on that strange planet will be open to you.
        Care to visit?
        Wishing all you Hubbers peace and prosperity for the coming year.
        Alan.
