I'm ready for a cold one. Something. Anything. How about a Hurricane? A Smoothie? A Tootsie Roll? Or a Skip and Go Naked? Nah. Ice water is quicker and easier. And closer.

We speak to her every day by phone because we live about 900 miles from where she is.

She has an uplifted spirit because of her surroundings and the people that she has caring for her. She says, staying here is like being at a 5 star resort (something my Mom has never done in her life) and the people are so wonderfully nice. Porridge in the morning is exactly the way she would make it. They come and ask her if she needs anything or would like anything. There's a triple decker bird house outside her window and she watches the birds come and go all day. Yesterday morning a lady came through with her small pet dog and Mom spent some time with it doing tricks and visiting. In the afternoon a lady came by with her guitar and Mom and her sang songs together for about a half hour. Dinners are great she says, like a fine restaurant, tastes like chef prepared. They bath her, tuck her in make sure she's comfortable.

When she talks, she sounds like she feels pampered and enjoying herself!

The people that care for her there are like Angels and it makes not being there a little easier on the heart strings .

My sister and brother are there every day thankfully.
Les that was one of the most uplifting post I've read lately, thanks for sharing.

Have you got Mary fishing in the rain.
The rain we are having here is on and off. Hard rain followed by sunshine! As far as Mary, if I wanted to fish in the rain she be ready to go. We've both about wore out our rain gear putting it on and off.

The cart they give us to use doesn't have doors! Glad you made it home safe!

Tim, I do have one big concern and this is it- what if someone like Wayne shows up at the park while you're hosting?

Hand him a rake and leave the park for a week?

Have him barred due to illicit smoothies?

Thanks Dave, I will keep it in mind.
I was just talking to my sister who lives close to Hanover, PA and she told me that it has been wet & chilly at her home. Hope you're doing a little better with the weather.

Thanks, Larry!

Yeah, after 8 months of almost total sun it has been a bit depressing here on the home ground. But being with family and friends helps.....but it aint like being in the sun and kitty litter.

Les I'm so glad your mom is in a good place that is very attentive and nurturing environment. I know it's tough for you being 900 miles away but thank goodness you have siblings close by to visit her and keep you posted. We will pray for your mom and your family.

Larry I understand your concern. That is one area you will have to get use to cause the park is full of dem Texans! But to help off set all that bull there is a good sprinkling of folks from all over.

Currently the Texans are the only ones NOT complaining about the rain! Some have said they just plain on setting out in it all day!
