When all else fails, try stand-up comedy

This blog being dormant for a while, I will have to attempt, like my old musical friends who called themselves the Mumbleducks (former duct installers all)--something like stand-up comedy. Take tragic instance out of your life and turn it into comedy. Like being born into a potato field (true story) where is seems your first cousin was kinda sweet. Or hitting on the same woman for the third time that night, and being told,"Hey,don't you think you're spreading yourself kinda thin?" Charlie Sheen manque', that's what one is. Told by a prospective pick-up, "Sorry. I don't have 'father' issues." Kinda tough, dating as a slightly (slightly?) older guy. Cover the balding head, wear an ear stud. Get a small tattoo. "Any more assholes like you in Newmarket?" Sit there at the bar, waiting for the ladies to make the first move. Hours later, in the mirror, you is a skeleton. Dating is tough for the slightly older guy. Until you finally learn, you don't have to do nothin'. Just sit there at the bar, looking all f*cked up. This is deadly. Even Lizzy the Lezzy will come right over. "Oh, you poor man!" Takes a long time to become a cad. :)

"Father issues!" Ouch, that one hurts.

Some residents of 540 Timothy Street seem concerned that
recent Housing Inc decisions may be made without being fullly cognizant of what is going on on the ground--
at least they tell me so, as a freelance writer.

1) With thre recent rearrangment of parking spaces, there is now no space for visitor parking to a seniors' building that has lots of visitors. There are also kerfuffles over newly allotted parking spaces.

2) All nine floors have had painfullly constructed "jigsaw" pictures up...These were put up with some work (and expense for new framec, etc).It had been good and rewarding therapy for Founder's Place seniors, and there had been some delight in seeing the pictures up, some of them classic reprints.
Now as all nine hallways will be repainted in November, the pictures have to go...Had not some volunteers offered to take some pictures into their own apartments, the pictures will have been discarded.

Most seniors are pretty happy--with a good new superintendent.
But it seems that political correctness, parking, new smoking policies--all add up to some discontent.

Could someone in housing have a look at these matters?

I.P.

Hi Charles

The chicken-track notes above are in that space because my printer has broken down, and I air my correspondence to the world. lol

To
Judith Wahl, LLD (or assistant)
Executive Director, A.C.E.
Advocacy Council for the Elderly,
2 Carlton Street, Suite 701
Toronto, ON M5B1L3

Dear Ms. Wahl,
I am a senior of 76 who, a year ago, was forced to acquire an Ontario Public Guardian and Trusteeship because of a hopeless financial situation which included my failure to pay rent to Housing York, here in Newmarket, Ontario.
This has since been rectified, including good work by my putlic Trustee, Departent of the Attorney General, my trustee's name being Ms. Esperance Kirahuzi.I am out of debt and the rent has been paid, all of it.
Now that a year has passed, I have requested to terminate the trusteeship and to "fly on my own."

The answer was a definite no.
"You need help with your income."

In a satirical turn of thought, I began to harbor the notion that everybody was helping herself to my income as I was allowed a paltry stipend of a hundred dollars a week, hardly survival income today.
So I seem indentured to the OPT&G for life.

My request for infomation from A.C.E. is how I can now get away from the Ontario Public Guardian and Trlustee.
I am in fact a little annoyed over my apparent tether to the OPG&T.

Can you or somebody in your office help?

Sincerely,

Ivan Prokopchuk
