today a tale of two days

a remarkable day has nearly finished, indeed two remarkable days. the first day was spent in the rarefied atmosphere of a queensland public trustee representative’s meeting, who was holding court in the centerlink office, right near the house of tbaoo. now if you’re keen senior or a carer of a senior – keen or not, you go to that office and sort out your affairs. my bride and i aren’t in that senior category just yet, but we needed the services offered by the public trustee. if you live in australia the government, via their state agencies provide some precise estate management, powers of attorney and will preparation.

of course the breakdown and distribution of the multi million dollar estate my bride and i have amassed will remain a secret, like my day job ( for now ) but when i retire the shit might really hit the fan, in a very public way.

no matter what category you might fall into, be it single, married, with dependents or without, i strongly recommend that you get your affairs in order. normally when i say that, it’s just before asking a sparklingly fresh young lady if she’d like to have an affair. not in this case though, it’s important, really importantly – important that you get your shit together.

shit can land and splat in any number of different ways, argument, dissent, litigation, retaliation or acceptance. it’s all going to depend on how you sort it out, if your wishes are followed, then whatever happens or indeed how those involved react, is entirely up to them.

today was a different story, i mentioned in this post about my then new orthotics, well today i had to take them in for a service. the edges at the heels had become a bit worn and were giving me gip when i was walking about in my “wearing far too fast” work-shoes. i failed to mention that yesterday i had bought a new pair of super comfy shoes for me and the bride. her’s were very smooth, as they had no toe protection in them. mine have big beefy protection for all big beefy situations.

well the orthotics were trimmed for my new work-shoes and the heel section supplied with an extra section of foam. so far all’s well and don’t they look good. the young man offered to trim the excess dead skin from my feet, so i sat there blissed out while having this procedure and watching a kids tv show about frogs, it was most relaxing and can i say, it’s something i might have to experience again.

pervy – no, relaxing and a proactive approach to my health – yes. i’m off now to try out my new work-shoes, my new orthotics and my “oh so very smooth” feet.

    I don’t know how it works over there. But I tell everyone of a certain age to get power of attorney over here, for finances and more importantly health. Very very very important should someone suffer from a dementia, trust me I’m a nurse 😉

    I think you better go to your lawyer and ask some advice about it. Don’t waste your time and money just like that.

    I can only describe this post as “beefy,” due to its unique and remarkable content (combined with my admittedly limited vocabulary and imagination). Hurrah for the successful trimming.

    It’s good to know that in your age, you still can feel those happy moments with the bride. At least there were still good people who offer goodness to their people just like the man who offer to trim your feet. I’m happy for you. More luck and blessings ahead.

    The estate planning attorney can suggest ways to make sure you can be financially able to do these things.
