  • Keep it coming, neighbors. My geologist-father, age 95, is of keen mind and cheerful spirit, but held prisoner by physical ailments in a Denver nursing home. He has trouble feeding himself, but with some effort, he can still turn the printed page. His favorites? Books and natural history from Pitchstone Waters. Proceed!
