A Bunch of James

James the Sign PainterMy first breakfast here at Colonial Village, was table 32. Tom, James and James welcomed me and we’ve become close friends. Tom was a decorated paratrooper in WWII. James did too many jobs to describe here. My other James moved to assisted living yesterday. This James was the sign painter. His daughter and son-in-law drove out from Midland to help him move his furnishings, shelves and stacks of cardboard. James made hats and life-size jukeboxes from cardboard.  The jukebox was so real-looking, it was used in a local university play. James will  be missed and the other James and Tom and Lou and Art and I will miss him most. Please put James on your prayer list. His mind is a terrible thing to waste, donchaknow. That’s what I get from My Box of Chocolates.   AMEN
