Thanks To ‘Granny Pods,’ Grandparents Can Babysit Your Kids (And Annoy You) In Your Own Yard

Many people today know that, one day, they’ll have to take care of their parents. Once parents get old enough, they might require assistance (whether that’s in their own home or at a senior living community).

What if you wanted to keep your mom, dad, and in-laws nearby? That’s where “granny pods” come in!

These are prefabricated medical cottages that you can install in your backyard. They simply hook up to existing sewer, water, and power lines. The result is a small, adorable cottage your parents will love, with the independence we all crave.

Designed as a high-tech medical cottage, these “pods” have everything.

They’re also equipped with cameras at ankle level to give privacy while ensuring the resident hasn’t fallen.

You can even purchase a small lift for people with mobility issues.

There’s a virtual companion system that reminds the resident to take medicine and helps them play music, movies, and games.

The cottages also include a pressurized air system to keep airborne illnesses out.

The result is a place that seniors will love — and you will, too!

Giving everybody what they truly want, these “granny pods” cost $125,000. If you’re interested in picking one up for your parents, or if you just want to install an Airbnb place in your backyard, check them out here.

Singing Contractors Surprise A Woman In The Hospital With A Lovely Song

Aaron Gray and Josh Arnett grew up with a love of music and working with their hands. As fate would have it, they recently ended up combining the two.

The pair are professional contractors from central Indiana, but have been sharing their joy for song by performing under the name The Singing Contractors. Their passionate renditions of Christian tunes have gained them a bit of a following in their area, so when they heard that one of their fans had taken ill and was in the hospital, they decided to surprise her by singing a beautiful version of “Old Rugged Cross,” right there by her sickbed.

What a wonderful thing to do for someone. I bet that meant the world to her.

By Buying A Used Record, This Person Became Part Of Someone Else’s Incredible Story

The beauty of browsing through vintage stores is that every single item has its own history.

Unlike new clothing, furniture, and trinkets, vintage pieces live entire lives before they cross paths with us. After all, who knows how far those shoes travelled, or how many memories were made around that old dining room table?

And any music lover will tell you that vintage records are among the most sought-after items. Just ask Redditor Muctur.

After purchasing a Soundgarden LP, the lucky collector came across something odd in the sleeve.

The little note that was folded up inside contained the story of this record’s past life.

While material goods aren’t nearly as important as the memories that are attached to them, it’s sometimes nice to take care of something that once held a special place in another person’s heart.
