  1. Lani-

    A note on widowers- when my mom passed on and left my dad a widower I was inundated with people warning me how fast men remarry when they are widowed (ack!)- and the more happily married they were the quicker. I think there is some statistical evidence. Although I really don’t feel like sorting through the google right now.

    Love the podcast- can’t wait for the ’80s

  2. Hell, my grandfather found himself a new girlfriend AND MOVED IN WITH HER before my grandmother even died. Class-ay. And the girlfriend called my mom up at work to say “We’re in love and there’s nothing you can do about it!” a few days before my grandmother died.

    Yeah, widowers. Fun times.
