The father-in-law was accepted into the Cal Veterans Retirement Home! They take out a percentage of his social security - about 80% which will leave him more spending money ($200+) than the measly $30 he gets now. We are all so happy for him. He gets a private room-studio complete with furnishings, and all his meals. They really do pamper them, there at the VA. We should hear sometime today or this week, when his moving date will be. They initially told us, sometime in Nov. He's been here since Nov 1 of last year, when his in laws back in Wisconsin dumped him on us. It just so happened, Char and her husband was moving down here from Washington, on Nov 1. All of a sudden we were FULL of family. It was not a good situation, looking back but it did all work out.
Char has filed for divorce - because she is on SSI,they waived her fee so it was basically FREE. She will take back her maiden name.
The husband is now working a swing shift - with Fridays and Saturdays off. (4pm to midnight) He showers at work before he comes home - (to save on water and germs) and crawls into bed around 12:45 am. It is nice having a warm body to sleep next to, now that the cooler nighttime temperatures are with us again.
