Coming Up in the Tapestry – 92

Sunday (November 13, 2016) we’ve got a “Wheel Tales” cartoon coming — “Upsetting”.

upsetting-00Why does it seem they say that all races are an upset?

I hope you like the cartoons. I’d love to hear from you and find out what you think of them. Drop a note to me via my Facebook page “The Gnome’s Garden”.

Thanks for dropping by!

Warehoused — Wheel Tales of Willow City

Warhoused 00 Warhoused 01 Warhoused 02 Warhoused 03 Warhoused 04 Warhoused 05 Warhoused 06 Warhoused 07 Warhoused 08 Warhoused 09When it is deemed that a person in hospital can no longer live safely in their home, the social service administration that looks after a person’s health and well-being, can refuse to release them until a suitable location is found?

This can be the case when a person falls and breaks a hip, or shows that they can no longer do transfers from a wheelchair without aid. This can happen even if the person isn’t on any disability benefit or pension, but is financially independent.

Instead of going back to the home they left, they end up being “warehoused” in a hospital until a space in a suitable facility opens up. It might be necessary for a person to have more assistance requiring a “semi-assisted living” facility or an “assisted living” one. In the meantime they languish in the stark environment of a hospital taking up a valuable bed. They are “warehoused”.

The only solution I can think of are making more units available. Growth is needed in facilities with our aging populations.


I hope you enjoy these and I would really appreciate your spreading the word. My stories are spread by word-of-mouth so this is the way that others might also see them.

I have noticed that the money only seems to be pouring in for those demographics for whom that party is seeking votes from.

Everyone one else seems to be ignored. I know that they seek everyone’s votes and travel to everywhere that voters are, but everything just seems aimed at getting the necessary votes to win. Don’t things have to be run during an election as well? Doesn’t everyone deserve attention for the needs of the public?
