Who’s on Second – Third Base! AKA Weekend Wrap Up

Oh My Goodness – I never realized just how true this round-about was!  The old-folks kicked my ARSE, they did this weekend!  So, when a 70+ year old Alzheimer patient tells you they ‘have to pee’ – well, you’re there to help them out.  Little did I realize (at the time), he’s in a brief …
