Bruce Jenner came out as a woman on national television during his interview with Diane Sawyer Friday evening and I watched every moment. I found him smart, funny and kind while Diane's questions probed into the very heart of his tormented soul. I am glad he is…Continue
As long as I don't spend any money, I'm rich. I know what I inherited from my mom can be gone in a blink of the eye but after it is all documented and transferred, I am ok right now. In fact I have upped my search for property on the Big Island of Hawaii from the $25,000 star gazer cabin…Continue
We are going to need a new set of values to deal with the Pot revolution. Just like booze, mj needs to be regulated and people need education about how to use it. There is the same danger with pot as there is with alcohol, sex, food and other sensual pleasures. Knowing limits to these things is part of growing up. Some don't make it but many people…Continue
What will I remember?
When I am lying down to die
Where will you be as I expire?
Ive seen you die again and again so
I'll recognize you easily.
You have a sweet…Continue
I gave my memory foam pad away yesterday and thought I could sleep just fine without it. This morning I woke up all achy and stiff. I miss that pad! I actually have two beds so I could have slept on the one that still has a pad and I will do that from now on. I have become totally addicted to waking up pain free.
Some people don't like memory foam pads. I fell in love the first night and they have even made camping a joy as a tent with a Memory Foam Pad in it can be a…Continue
I don't understand the problem here. This story was in the news not long ago about a couple who allowed their kids to walk home from a park by themselves and someone called the cops when they saw the two kids alone. Now it has happened again. The kids had been on a long drive and the parents dropped them off at another park to play…Continue
I had been digging in to wait out my mom's 100th birthday but when she suddenly died at 96 I started moving. Her house is empty and now I am emptying my house. The contrast of the two empty houses is interesting and moving itself is such a revelation.
When I was a kid on Guam I enjoyed playing with Hermit Crabs. I saw one without the shell once…Continue
I took my last load out of Mom's house thinking there should be bells and flags waving but it was just another ordinary day. The manager of the park had been my final visit and he shook my hand wishing he had bid on the house with the incredible view but he was too late. It…Continue
My mom's neighbor just called from rehab. She can't believe the incompetence there. "They can't even prop my sore foot up on the pillows correctly and they gave me a shower and washed my hair with the same bath gel."
"This place is just a warehouse for dementia patients. Physical Therapy is a joke and they hurt me more than helped me. "
I told her she is in Hell and to mellow out. Physical Therapists are sadists and at the same time they are incredibly slow. My…Continue
"It's exactly opposite to the Highlands!" My daughters are laughing about the stark contrast of this amazing property on…Continue
We found a fine little graph while moving my mom's furniture items. My dad often explained his theory of reality to me and here it is all explained in an interesting way. It was a treat to find something of my Dad's in all the girly girl stuff of my mom and we…Continue
The military cemetery is full up here in San Diego and my mom is lucky she has a space reserved next to my dad. I have been wondering where the anxiety was coming from as I deal with the military way of interring someone and I am interested in the negative…Continue
After falling asleep with my clothes on because I am exhausted from moving so many of deceased mom's boxes of stuff to Hawaii I have had the most interesting dreams. Two have been full of anger.
I moved my own boxes too and actually it was a pleasure to go thru mom's precious things, sorting them out, dusting off forgotten treasures and remembering the funny…Continue
