I knew that getting older there would be challenges, but I had not anticipated this one.

Today I had to estimate how many incandescent light bulbs to buy so that we can read in bed and light our den until we croak.  The NannyState has outlawed them.

So, being optimistic about life on this side, we now have quite a horde of bulbs.

We’ve decided that for as long as we can manage it, we’re too old for cheap wine or non-incandescent reading lights.

But the way things are going, once we’ve departed these lights may be the most valuable items in our estate.  We’ve already asked our children not to fight over them.
