The Philanthropist

 

  My Mother's in a nursing home, poor thing, I didn't want her

to go into one, I mean how could I visit one, they're terrible

places, but my brother visits her there, he tells me how she is,

he's my eyes and ears. It's sweet of him isn't it. I like to know

how she's going poor thing.

  Yes Mum's got dementia. I tried to look after her here, but how

could I, it was too much! Luckily before she went into the 

nursing home she let me put my signiture in her bank book

so I could look after her affairs, that was good of her wasn't it?

  I'm never short of cash now, I've always got plenty when I need

to buy people presents, I mean you enjoy buying other people

things don't you? I bought Larry some new golf clubs and he was

really pleased, and I give him a few dollars each day to play the

pokies, he hasn't got much money of his own.

  Yes it's good not to be broke all the time, I can always afford to

buy something nice for the children, for their birthdays, and 

Christmas, they like their Nana spending money on them, and

I never hesitate to buy myself something special on those occasions

too. I mean Mum maybe blank eyed and dribbling but I'm sure she

still wants to buy me something!

  The other week I bought myself this lovely diamond ring, it's lovely 

isn't it. I know Mum wanted me to have it. Yes her bank book's

come in really handy. The only thing is that it's a bit low at the 

moment, because I had to buy something for everyone, and I want

make a donation to the church on Sunday, I always like to to give

them something, they do such good work.

  I don't think there's money in the bank book now to pay for Mum's

nursing home accomodation, I hope they don't put her out onto

the street...Poor Mum...Maybe when there's some more in the 

account me and Larry can take a nice holiday, I think we deserve 

it...We would have seen her last weekend, but we were too busy

spending her money...
