Neighborhoods all over America are filled with good hard working people who have families to take care of and jobs to go to all week. Sometimes, between taking care of the kids and getting a project done before a deadline at work, it becomes easy to let the little things slide.

For instance, many homes across the country have front or back lawns or both. If you live in an area with it doesn’t rain enough and is prone to droughts the grass can turn brown unsightly and an eyesore to the surrounding neighbors.

On the other hand if you live in a place where it rains a lot, your lawn can become overgrown and have a very unkempt and rather ugly look. Again this will also not be visually appealing to the surrounding neighbors and couldn’t even decrease their property values.

There have been reports of neighbors aggressively walking by and asking people with unkempt lawns if their lawn mower was broken or if they needed to borrow one. Sometimes in the most extreme cases, very aggressive neighbors have been seen mowing a neighbors lawn in the middle of the night not with good intentions!

This is where Home Owners Associations (HOA) or Bylaws come into play. Home owners in neighborhoods want a certain level standard and upkeep of all the surround property and homes. If somebody is letting their grass die or let it overgrow HOA’s and/or Bylaws can intervene.

This brings us to today’s story. It features a 75-year old woman named Gerry Suttle from the town of Rissel, Texas.  Gerry was mailed a summons to come to court about a lot of land she owned across from home.

The lot was in violation of the city ordinances and standards because the grass had grown weigh too high. Her court date came and went and there was no sign of Gerry. She just failed to show up for her court date.

Then an actual warrant was put out for this sweet old lady’s arrest and if she didn’t turn herself in, she risked getting taken from her house in handcuffs and put into a cop car and then placed in jail cell!

The entire time Gerry stuck to her story explaining that the letter never came to her and she did not receive it! This whole situation was quickly snowballing and getting completely out of hand.

One morning she woke up, looked out her window, and saw 4 brothers mowing her lawn! She rubbed the sleep out of her eyes thinking maybe she was dreaming this? Could this really be happening? She went outside and asked the 4 kids what they were doing?

They explained they saw her story on the television, they knew they had the equipment and the manpower so they decided to take matters into their own hands and clean up Gerry’s lot. She was a complete strange to these boys but they felt such empathy for her and couldn’t stand the thought of this sweet old lady going to jail.

As in many small towns, word tends to travel fast about these four strange brothers doing such an amazing thing for a person they didn’t even know. As the news spread Gerry’s neighbors heard that these youngsters were using push mowers and realized these guys were going to needs some help!

Soon neighbors began flocking to the lot to help the four brothers. Within 2 hours the lot was done and it was the most beautiful plot of grass in the whole neighborhood!

But this isn’t where the story ends…

Get ready for some unexpected fun!  Pete and Beulah Mae get out on the dance floor at an old age home, as some funky music starts to play.  Nobody in the place expected what was about to happen. This elderly couple started off slow performing for some senior citizens.

They’ve been dancing together for years and start off their routine like some clunky vaudeville act.  Goofy mistakes and slapstick contortions don’t prepare you for what is about to come.  They are about to really startle their audience with their moves.

They are incredible swing dancers with a modern edge; watch Beulah Mae twerking!  I kept looking to see if they were actually younger people dressed up to look elderly.  They are not in costume, but have maintained a “young at heart” vitality that is a joy to watch.

Let us know what you think of this epic performance!

Hidden Camera Records What An Elderly Lady Does At Home Alone. What It Reveals Is Heartbreaking!

We are all going to grow old some day, if we are lucky enough to maintain relative good health.  We may not make it to the age of 98, like Mary Tony, who is the subject of the video you are about to watch below.  When you finish watching this heartbreaking video, it will give you pause, to think of elderly people you know who may be facing the terrible loneliness that Mary suffers.

The title of this video is “Junk Mail”, because when Mary is not at the senior center that she enjoys immensely, she has nothing to do and no one to talk to.  She lives alone and no one comes to visit.  She confides in the person interviewing her that “[she] has to do something or [she’ll] go nuts” so she cuts up junk mail, puts it in a bag and throws it away.

The film crew, known as Voyager, had a mission to gain a window into the life of a 98-year-old person, living out her life without any attention or interaction with her family.  People need human contact and love from other human beings.  Thankfully, Mary receives this at the senior center that she has started to attend.

However, she is left with many empty hours where no one comes to see her, during which her loneliness is truly unbearable.  Her family is too busy to see her.  When the crew asks Mary how she feels about her living situation she responds, “I don’t mind. What am I going to do? Where could I go? I am by myself.”

Mary’s story is not unlike many of the elderly who are ignored at the end of their lives.  It is such an important reminder, of the impact of the difference made by a simple visit, every so often.  Mary was so overwhelmed by a visit organized by the senior center, that she was brought to grateful tears, saying “I love you all for coming..it’s made my day and I’ll never forget this”.

Watch the video below and pass on Mary’s story.

This 81 Year Old Guy Finds A Guitar In The Music Store. The Song He Plays With It Blew Me Away!

What is amazing is that we are amazed by the elderly man in the video below!  He walks into a music store and picks up a guitar and…he plays impressively! Why are we so amazed? The answer unfortunately lies in the way that our society sees aging.  Rather than seeing the elderly as older versions of themselves, we see them as people who are disappearing.

We used to have extended families, where grandparents helped us with our young.  More than one family often lived under one roof, and each generation took care of each other reciprocally.  Today we are amazed when an elderly person can do anything, let alone doing what the gentleman in this video does.

Clearly he played guitar, whether professionally or as a talented amateur.  This guy’s got chops!  Not only does he play fluidly, but he feels the music just as he did when he was a younger man.  We are all going to grow older, and it is time we took a healthier and more respectful view of those who grow old before us.

With good health we can go on to continue to be contributing members of society.  The man you are about to watch does a good job at counteracting our stereotypes. His name is Bob Wood and he is 80 years young!
