My father lives alone. My mother passed away 3 years ago. He has no social outlet. 3 mo ago he was placed on home oxygen so now he is even more isolated/housebound. He has a computer. I try desperately to get him out of the house. He only goes to his VA appointments and then back home. He has 2 small dogs that provide him some companionship and I try to stop by and visit weekly. He could use a computer friend.

Heard this one ?

A hard-working tele-marketer called up an elderly woman one day, and began to solicit her for his product. The woman was so in need of a little conversation, she could not let the young man off the phone - but instead was compelled to keep him talking. Only did their talk end when she had finally purchased from him even more than she could afford. MORAL: lest they be scammed, many people just need someone for a short time, to converse with and to share.
