    He has a roof over his head; it's his former place of business. It isn't suitable for living there but he's not on the streets at least. He has electric but no gas, as best I could figure out. There's a toilet and sink, no shower or kitchen. I wasn't able to get the microwave set up, but it's there at least, if he decides to use it.

    He'd slept on the floor until someone brought in what appears to be a full length lounge chair (outdoor type) that was plumped up with blankets. Not good for an 85 yr old man...But better than a bare floor.
    He wouldn't come home with me either.

        If I knew he was on the streets, I'd bring him home, against his will if that's what it took. I'm beyond the point of caring whether they get mad at me. Lol

          Mom is now staying with me for a few weeks.
          I just have to laugh sometimes.

          I called her from work to tell her I'd be after 8 getting home. "can you bring me a Twinkle?"
          It's funny because it's so much like a kid, but especially because my mom never will ask for anything. Not exaggerated, she will hardly say anything she wants or prefers. Then she just blurts out that she needs a Twinkie of all things.

          Twice I've cried out "serenity now!" lol
