    I had two retired gents I would see every other week. did'nt read any scrip...however I left the mags

    we talked about money, travels, socials, sometimes business. They had medical issues, and were always

    friendly. Do you think they could have been lonely?

    Or, just to talk to someone once in a while?

    I was just counting time.

    I find that sometimes you'd meet some clearly lonely old people who would talk for hours about anything, probably just to have someone to speak to... They would generally change the subject when you tried to get back to preaching though!

    I had mixed reactions - they would look at me and wonder why I was up so early with old people in 70's attire.

    Or, maybe it was the fact I was half asleep and I didn't

    Come to think of it, I think I was a bad

    In the last 2-3 years of me doing field service, I was the one glad to see someone answer the door.

    It was getting so bad that in one hours FS you would be lucky to speak to 4-5 people.

    I worked streets with 50+ houses in and would be lucky to get two people in.

    None that I can think of. Of course, I too was usually disappointed when someone would answer the door because that meant I couldn't just leave a rolled up old WT by the doorknob.
