I'm in my late 50s and so glad you're doing this storyline. Our populations age the same as anyone else's, and it's myopic to not recognize it. Potential for great stories here. Being in his early 80s means he was in his early 40s at the time of Stonewall. Depending on when and how he came out, he could have some amazing tales to tell, if his fellow renters are receptive to hearing them!

I'm glad to see an older man at the BNB again, by the way what ever happened to Mark? I liked him even if he was a bit arrogant. He also looked good in short-shorts, a true silver fox, if there ever was one in this strip. I hope Rudy will actually have love interests and not just be a minor character floating through the BNB. Is it just me or does Rudy's niece look like (GASP!) the abominable Sarah Palin!

Diana I agree with you 100%. Anonymous, I thought the same thing.

I have to agree with the above, it's good to see an eldery person in the B&B.

We come in all shapes and sizes, and ages.

Ski Chalet? Not familiar with that one.

Peter said...

In the earlier episodes you could see that the house was an A-frame building with lots of wood in/on it.

Is it just me, or does Kyle resemble Greg Fox just a little?

I'm sorry, but here I just see a bitter old man, not much cause to rejoice.

Of course we will know in the next episodes why he is like that (not accepting his age? lover died of AIDS in the '80s?), but it is a pity that the first elderly person in the B&B is the stereotype of the grumpy and bilious old guy.

some day, "anonymous" if you're ever in this position, I hope that you will cheerfully and gracefully (that is without an ounce of anger or frustration) go willingly into that good night and not rage, rage against the dying

Hey, I'd be grumpy too if people talked down to me all the time and I got shuffled around like some relic you don't really want any more but can't quite bring yourself to throw away.

I actually know many elderly people which are cheerful and accept their age with grace.
Of course I also know many which are like the guy in the comic. Usually, the former live much better, and let the people around live much better too.

The guy in the comic is just obnoxious with poor Kyle and he hasn't the right to be, considering that he was welcomed with warmth. I cannot sympathize with such a behavior, not even if the person who behaves like that is old. Age is not an excuse to rudeness.

In gay people I think there is also the added factor of the scare of getting old. This is why I would have preferred to see a nice old gay guy that lived a full life and happy to tell it, than a bitter old queer.
But of course Greg is welcome to explore this side of gay life, I would just have preferred a more positive example.

As someone observed, we are not only all shapes and colors, we are also all ages.
From some of these remarks, at 67 I probably qualify as ancient.
(I remember 12" vinyl recordings,
I remember TV before color,
I remember when Cleopatra went to the Temple of RA to lead a few cheers.)
