Still Learning …

We had another vitrigraph pull this week … We’ve got a nice variety of cane going – while we continue to learn what to do and what not to do!  Now, if SOMEONE would just finish making my cane-chopper! I played with… Read More

Learning patience …

Or trying to, anyway.  We’re waiting for some supplies to come in.  Like a crate of Bullseye glass (they had a sale – what can I say?) and some stainless steel sheeting.  [DH is going to make a vit speed pot for… Read More

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… Read More

Crashed hard!

WWU … My Poor Baby!

My youngest daughter came to visit me at work this weekend.  Not exactly in a manner I would have hoped for … but I was able to help care for her AND be her Mom.  She got hurt at her job*.  Multiple… Read More
