It's amazing what you can get up to when your wife is no longer around to tell you it's a terrible idea and that she told you to edge those flowerbeds last week.

I feel like this should've been done while she was still alive. I hope they have grandkids who can enjoy it.

Maybe he should just ask his friends and neighbors to try to help him remember where he left her.

The garden is crap unless he has witch's feet sticking out from under his house.

I have a 50-something friend who recently lost his wife. He hasn't figured out what the hell to do yet. We all expected we would die and let the ladies deal with the aftermath.

Luckily they have one adult kid to provide some focus. But I expect she will take responsibility for their lives now. Guys left on their own tend to become hermits or drunks and/or cadavers.

Lawrence Richard Walters, nicknamed "Lawnchair Larry" or the "Lawn Chair Pilot", (April 19, 1949 - October 6, 1993) was an American truck driver.[1] On 2 July 1982 he flew very high in the sky in a homemade aircraft. He called his flying machine Inspiration I. It was made of an ordinary outdoor chair and 43 large balloons full of helium. Walters went up more than 15,000 feet. He went from San Pedro, California

He was married to a woman for 66 years and only now we learn that he's a friend of Dorothy.

The article fails to mention that the dead wife absolutely farking hated The Wizard of Oz and this is some kind of revenge fantasy by the surviving spouse.

That's why the guy has a giant smile plastered across his face.
