    One of the stranger stories I’ve seen. You’d think that those 365 newspapers lying in the driveway would have been a hint. 🙂

    If he had been blind for years why was he “watching” TV? Also, the TV being on implies that the the power did not even blip over the last year. That is hard to believe.

    We had a TV that would come on when the power came back on.

    He must have been on automatic withdrawal for his utility bills. They’re just not that nice to leave it go for so long.

    I couldn’t watch the video to find out why there was no one checking up on an elderly, blind, diabetic. Poor guy.

    I don’t understand the postal worker who kept piling mail in the box and even on the ground. I know it’s not exactly a postal worker’s job to look out for folks, but it seems like at least one person in the world would’ve missed this guy. And the neighbors thought he had been taken to a facility–did not even one of them feel inclined to find out why his mail wasn’t being forwarded. I mean, in a whole year did not one single piece of this mail that was laying all over the ground blow into a neighbor’s yard and one of them feel led to think, where the heck is that guy?

    Who knows…

    You are absolutely right, Bonnie. They should have checked.

    I used to deliver a paper and if a client didn’t pick it up for a few days I went to the door to find out why.

    But hey, maybe it’s a Southern thing … …
