The Croaker House is where you are gonna be living when you croak. Are you living now in your croaker house? We don't think we are, but we've been talking about this ever since my friend in Houston showed me her new house, one that she had designed and built and the one that would soon be empty with all of her children off to college.
"This isn't my Croaker House," she told me. She has plans to start over and do a smaller house. That's where she'll breathe her last breath, in the smaller house.
Croaker houses. That was a new thought, or a new way to put it. Joared wrote about Living in Place and I just am not ready yet to think about those things, or even think about Community Croaker Homes or reserving your ticket in. Having parents alive will do that for you, keep the wall of death way out there for awhile.
