She must have done something really bad to deserve this. Happy ST. This was an ad for the "Monarch Village": a village of deserving monarchic matriarchs.
Still catching up from all the work!
oh, my! speaks volumes about our "culture" ;)

derserve? strange street sign. would like to know what it is all about. what she definitely should not "deserve" is a taco bell diet.

@trilliana: I just find it so uncomfortable to be appealing to this aspiration of grandeur and importance and pride through advertisement. It's a retirement home; hardly resembling monarchy. Hardly a lifestyle. Hardly deserving. Maybe settling. "The Lifestyle Mother Must Settle For" is more like it.;)

Oh so true! Love it!

ST Smiles . . I see they have that image on their website for retirement living. Grand as I'm sure they try make the place, it sure looks like a nightmare to me . . every day of the week !

There are just so many things that make me cringe about that picture. It just needs some apple pie, Dad doing the bar-b-q wearing a "Funny" apron, the kids living in a $5M New York apartment(even though they are unemployed), and a dog that can talk to finish it off. Back in a moment, I'm just off to put 2 fingers down my throat

@CElliottUK: I hope you feel better now.

A punishment worse than death!!! Well seen and captured Bettina! Happy ST! ;-)))

Oh no - this retirement village looks to be the equivalent of Sunnyside from Toy Story 3!

Very strange. Looks like a nightmare ... Happy ST :)

Not quite what i imagined you doing after my comment yesterday

@The Mouse: Lol. That's just me making sure this isn't in my future...
That is messed up!

@Steve Rice: LOL!
Tee Hee. Looks like the implication is that she is deserving of sitting back with her family and just going "Taco Bell." Oh, I think not. Mom deserves WAY better than that. :-)
