97-year-old evicted from retirement home for playing his ukulele

Jim Farrell was evicted from his Napa retirement home and forced to live in a homeless shelter, all because he loved to play his uke.

He told reporters that Redwood Retirement Center's management would scold him like a child, and tell him to get back to his room. Eventually they got so angry, they put him on the streets.

The retirement center released a statement saying, "Mr. Farrell was unable to abide by the rules of the community. We took this action so our residents at redwood retirement could continue to live in a safe, healthy and comfortable environment they call home."

Luckily, an anonymous donor heard Farrell's story and paid the move-in expenses for Piner's Nursing Home. A place where he will be able to play his music undisturbed.
