Is something going on?? Yesterday I visited a large Canadian retail store where I was approached, unsolicited, by a floor clerk who asked whether I required assistance, conducted me to the area of my interest, explained some intricacies of the sales offers in vigour, and volunteered to remain nearby in case I had further need of him. I was so shocked I nearly called the management.

A common experience on retirement is the realization that you have far more clothes,at least of a particular kind, than you are likely to need ever again. Those considering excess attire disposal have many options, including donation to Neighborhood Services and The Salvation Army. May I suggest that you give some thought to The Sisters of Charity, an organization that has maintained a fine tradition of benevolence and generosity in Ottawa since that great life force, Elizabeth Bruyere, established the order here many years ago.
