Our family motto is
"between us we make one whole idiot." It's hard to get mad at someone for
doing something stupid when you know you're next! We're also dreadful slobs and glad
we found each other! Nobody else could put up with us but us!
dad has Alzheimer's. He lives in a
community nearby. Bruce's step-mom had it too. They looked
after her at home until she died January. It's a hell of a disease, I tell
ya. I wouldn't wish it on anyone. Ever.
used to spend a lot of time dreaming up my dream
house but we moved to Florida so I'm getting pretty
spoiled. I spend most of my time outside, reading, puttering, and
playing with my little cockatiel, the Pie
monster, and keeping an eye on my old CATS!
I've a collection of original limericks for amusement and I used to write "real" poetry but
just don't feel that
angst anymore. I've artified a circle of poems I wrote some time ago. I
think they came out nice. I used to paint too but it's been a long time since
I used a paintbrush as more than a hair-stick. This place is so
beautiful though, I will get creative again soon.
