my 94 year old jw dad is now in hospital--i visit him every day.
in the opposite corner of the ward were a group of visitors to an oldish chap. my dub-dar caught words like kingdom hall and watchtower from the rather loud voiced woman i took to be the patients wife. she also mentioned a dub by name ive known for 40+years--so i guessed they are in the local congregation to my dad.
as i was leaving--the woman said to me--"what a loving --dutiful son i am."---i was just going to smile as i left--but the devil in me kicked in.
so--i replied--"well--i'm all hes got left "
then--in a quieter voice------"actually---i overheard your loud conversation---you mention Bro G****** W******** by name----i know him---------my dad--he is one of yours"
ooh--that triggered them off--asking if my dad is a JW--and which cong is he in.
so--i said--i think the same cong as you----but he cant attend because hes in a residential care home now. just a pity no-one ever visits him now-----ha ha.
