i spent a summer (one of many away from home) in southwest Virginia, working on an internship, & the college i was working for set me up to live with this "old" widow in her old Southern mansion (she let out rooms on the 2nd floor to young girls & made the 1st floor into a restaurant). so, whenever i had a free day, i'd help her out in the restaurant for free, she'd give me food (it was SO good - Southern style), & we'd talk. she took a real liking to me & introduced me to her "older" girlfriends - they'd go out together & enjoy themselves most nights of the week - no husbands to worry over or kids to anxiously wait up for anymore. one of her friends was a judge - she found out i got a speeding ticket & offered to "take care of it" because she had a long-standing hatred of the cop who gave it to me & she liked me... those women - GOD, what inspiration! they took my already growing admiration for "elderly" women & strengthened it even more... by the end of my stay, they were inviting me out with them, taking care of my dinner, taking me to shows, etc.
