A New Moon

It was a new moon, an orange crescent smiling as it settled into an ink black flat lake.  It was the moon and a whisper from Marty that made me stop.  You should have been there.On most nights at our lake home, after Marty has settled in bed, I go sit outside on our west facing deck to enjoy the night sounds and cool air (in the fall and winter). I almost always take my I Pad with me and let my mind check out as I play Spades or something else equally inane.When there is not much of a moon and…See More

"The first thing I thought when I saw your post was, "I wonder how Marty is." How's Marty? I had a bunch of uncles who fought in Korea and one who committed suicide there. Only one is still alive. We do forget."

Zanelle commented on Marty'sHusband's blog post Paranoia is Really Hard
"Marty is so lucky to have you care for her.  The one rule of caregiving is to take care of yourself first.  That is so important.  If your gut is telling you the stress of worry is too much then amp it down a bit and do something a…"

Zanelle commented on Marty'sHusband's blog post Nurses
"What a great tribute to nurses.  I hope your words are reaching a wider audience because they are important.  My problem with nurses is that they have become pill pushers.  The real care comes from the nurses aides.  I was an…"

I am the chief caregiver for Marty, my wife of 30+ years. In our previous lives Marty was an Educational Psychologist, I was a call center manager. Marty has had two strokes since 2005 which have caused critical physical and cognitive deficits. We are both in our mid-50's and have two adult children. This is what I have learned over the last years, this is our life.

A couple of Sundays ago Marty and I went to Preston Hollow Presbyterian Church in Dallas to watch as our youngest grandchild, Lucy Jean, was baptized.  For me, for us, it is a spiritual thing.  For me, for us, infant baptism represents the best of who we are as human beings.

Forty years ago Marty and I went skiing in Breckenridge Colorado for our honeymoon.  I had never skied before so you might think that wasn’t the best thing to do on a honeymoon….pish posh.   Marty was a good skier and did end up teaching me a thing or two.  Actually, she ended up having to dig me and my skies out of a four foot snow drift mid way down the beginner slope. …

On January 3rd 1976 the USA performed a nuclear test in Nevada.  It was called the Muenster test, which is funny because Marty and I lived in Muenster Texas.
