Before it was with mail and, especially sweepstakes. He would sit for hours at his desk and read every word...including fine print and send off checks. It got so bad, we had to change our phone number. Now, he is obsessed with an old flame that lives in Kansas. Now that is all he talks about. He has fantasies about her and the way she was when she was 18. That was 70 some years ago. He can seem to think about anything else, and that is all he talks about. It's exasperating!
