Default Time to Hang up My Keys?


After struggling for this last year with My Bride having to go into assisted living and my having suffered from a stroke (I thought) extensive testing and evaluation reveals no stroke. I have Myasthenia Gravis. Impaired muscle skills, severe speech impairment, throat muscle impairment and approaching eye muscle impairment maybe I don’t need my beloved bird. Perhaps I need to consider selling it. Y’all are all my valued friends so maybe some suggestions about potential buyers, price, etc. let me hear from you.

Tommy, at least you are making a good decision for your situation.
As Bill said, Randy will be your best help as he has experience!
Our thoughts and prayers are with you and Martha.
Good memories of fun times together!

I salute you sir.
Hanging up the keys is a hard thing to do,made harder by having to tell your friends and family here at WOG.
But no matter what,we will be here for you.
Take care,White Hat Guy!

I hate to hear that Tommy, I always enjoyed talking to you and eating your BBQ.
That is a draw back of being envolved in a group as we all get older, we all are going to get to that point some time.

Tommy, Sorry to hear about both you and Martha. That decision you just made isn't an easy one, but you did it, which is the hardest part. Like others have said, we will all face it at some point in time. Those that don't have the courage that you have, let their Birds sit in a field, lot, or some old barn and deteriorate. You have chosen to preserve your beloved Bird and pass it on to another caretaker. My hat (which isn't as white as yours) is off to you. God bless you both.

My hat is off to you for giving up your keys as this is a tough decision to make, but one we all need to be ready to make.
