Wife's grandfather Harvey is still kicking just not as high. As of right now he's bed ridden and can't have anything solid to eat. He's a tough old man that's for sure.

Is Grandfather Harvey still at home? I hope he is comfortable.

My mom is in a nursing home. She has dementia and is unable to do anything for herself other than eat a little bit.

At the time he was at home but he passed last Thursday on the 21st. The family is taking it pretty hard.

I'm sorry about your mother B. My grandfather had Alzheimer's when he passed. I'm pretty sure it was his age though

Other then the rain been pretty good around these parts. What's up with everyone else? I did get a splinter in my finger on Wednesday so you know me being the macho man I am I cringed like a little school girl when the wife got it out with a needle. :wink: It was almost a half inch long though. Damn plywood

It's some little things in life that can turn things around. On my way home and heard two Godsmack songs reminding me of times driving and hanging out with old high school buddies late at night. It's amazing what memories will be pulled up by the littlest of things

Such sad news in here. So sorry to hear about Merle's wife and Talon, your Father-In Law. B'mat is your Mom still in a nursing home? How is she doing?
I lost my Mother back in October.

I am very sorry about your loss, Ariel. :(

Yes, my mom is in the nursing home. She is doing so much better than when she was at her own home that we are convinced it was the best decision for her. She loves talking to everybody there.

My sister needs another kidney transplant, so we are all waiting for this to happen.

I'll pray for your Sister B'mat. I'm glad your Mom is doing well where she is. Sometimes it is the best decision and she is happy, that's what really counts.

Went to my 40th HS class reunion. Met up with old chums, had a good time.
