Thank you HoosierDaddy, I appreciate that
Very touching, Bob. Alzheimer's has touched our family, too.
I'll echo the post by HoosierDaddy here, 2jakes. Addiction is very tough to beat. If the quoted prose is descriptive of your situation, I sincerely wish you all the very best and offer my respect.
I'm at physical rehab to rebuild my body
with weights and exercises. After months in hospital, my weight went from 190 to 160.
I don't drink or smoke.
Looking back, I had a great childhood
with my pals and not much interference
Like the movie Stand by Me, I don't have
friends like ones when I was a kid,
Things that make me smile....
My cute boyfriend
My three puppers
A completed sewing project
My clients (I work with IDD adults...they can be anything from jerks to the best ever, but love them all regardless!)
My life now
The other night a couple of the Kids and I were going to go bowling -- but because of the snowstorm, which decidedly didn't make any of us smile, the bowling alley was closed. So instead we settled in at my house and spent a pleasant couple of hours playing with my cat and, of all things, looking at View-Master slides, and finally reading particularly fruity passages aloud from my copy of "100,000,000 Guinea Pigs: Everyday Dangers in Foods, Drugs, and Cosmetics." We swore a pact never to eat All-Bran or undergo x-ray hair removal again, and one of the young people borrowed the book to read all the way thru.
It's fashionable today to slag on millennials for their addiction to forms of entertainment old people can't handle -- but the next time anyone here is tempted to do that, please remember that there was a night, in 2019, when two twenty-somethings and an old lady had a perfectly enjoyable evening laughing at 3-D Kodachrome pictures of a zoo llama with clothes on.
I know Google is an evil empire stealing our data and souls, but darn if this isn't a cute doodle it did with its homepage today:
From the Google Maps Quick facts about Pawtucket, R.I., taken from Wikipedia:
