100 Words- May 16, 2015- Mrs. Osbourne

Mrs. Osbourne lived, rent and board free, with her daughter. Social Security, even before tithing, wouldn’t allow other accommodation. Medicare had paid for her recent hip replacement.

She did not believe in government handouts, foreign aid, taxes, a woman’s right to choose, gun registration, gay marriage, or Liberals. She did believe in Creation Science, Jesus, the Second Coming and prayer in publically funded schools, but only if it was Christian prayer. She also firmly believed the blue tint in her hair made her look a decade younger. She took unchristian pride in her Christianity (she was saved), and her self-reliance.

About elrondsilvermaul

I never know what to say about myself. I let what I write try to speak as to who I am. I can only add, here, that I am 72, live in a nursing home, am twenty years a cancer survivor, and identify as a gay male. I intend to use this blog as storage for poems? written over the long years (and still being written). This does not preclude other uses.
