I just reread this thread.
I'm not able to pay that unless I sell the house, as I live on little. A cousin has helped me on recent property tax rigamarole, keeping me from having to sell. (California didn't keep ballooning it, at least in my time there). I wish I had looked into that before moving.
On hearing aids, I've researched before, but maybe I missed something and should check Senior Affairs again. Meantime I've gone probably 20 years with out them, and I have my ways with real people to get them to speak louder.
This annoys all of us.
I just reread, Roger, as I took it was all stuff I couldn't do, I must have stopped at the two grand; today I caught on there are possibilities. I'll look into it.
Thank you, in the meantime.
