Moiraine - my sister will be working in London for ten months. She has already informed us that she will have a two bedroom flat so we will make London our base of operations for a few days and then venture off either into the country, maybe Cornwll, or maybe take the train through the chunnel to Paris.

Hey Bob, that will be really nice. I have a friend that lives in Bristol. I also have two in the northern part of the country. One of them will be coming to the US in a few years to marry her sweetie.

We have the cruise in april, and that will be it for 2012. We will be flying to spend Christmas in Connecticut. Of course I will make a trip up North every once in a while to visit my mom.

We plan to go to Hawaii in april 2013 for our 15th anniversary. We were there for our 5th and 10th.

Bob, I hope that you can swing that trip to England.

Henry - Is Dyker Heights home ground?

Indianapolis lit their worlds' largest Christmas "tree" again on Friday.

No, you are right, but I do have a couple of deadlines coming up next month. I'd like to be able to get that stuff done so I don't have to worry.

Thanks TM. It was nice to get off track today. Two of my uncles came down to visit. One of them was in from, most recently, California. I had not seen him in decades. Dad was very moved. He cried when he saw him, but thought he was another brother from California. He's so confused though that he's thought he was yet another brother and even an aunt this evening. I've had to tell him about 15 or 20 times who it was that visited.

I know very well what you are going through with your dad. My mom is very confused most days. She never knows if I am her son or grandson.
My son goes to see her two or three times a week and she has three nieces that visit her regularly, but she does not remember the visits for very long.

It's sad. My brother and SIL will visit and he'll forget within a day or so. My niece and her hubby will visit and he'll confuse them in a few hours with a cousin and her hubby. He told me Saturday right after they left that he'd not spent much time with her, so did not know her very well. My brother and his first wift divorced when she was six. My brother had custody. My mom and dad helped raise her..........

Yes, it is a very sad disease. And it can come at a fairly early age. My MIL started to have memory loss at 70 and it quickly progressed into full-blown Dimentia.

The writer Terry Pratchett is in his 60s I think and has a form of the disease. Horrible, horrible thing to live with and to watch.

Perdido Key. I still don't know when. My brother is going to book the condo after the first of the year. His wife is an RN and took a nursing position this last semester but does not know what is going to happen with the coming semester yet. All I know is that we'll be going there anytime from late spring to early summer. I'll be happy for the rest.

You do need a rest.

Everyone does, but caregivers need it even more.

Yep, we all need a rest from time to time. It will be nice to have hot chocolate in the morning on the balcony overlooking the Gulf while talking to my bro and SIL.

Well, thanks for the chat. I'm doing some of this paperwork. That will be one less thing to do. See ya tomorrow.

Have a good evening.

Good morning gang

Another busy day here for us as we continue to organize and furnish our new home.

Hey Gang,
Happy Tea Tuesday. We just finished having a new front and garage door installed. It seems warmer already - yay!

The DW has been down at the hospital most of the day. Her father was having a spot removed from his lung this AM. He had been cancer free for about 3 1/2 years and the doctors are not too concerned about this, they just want to make it go away. It does make me wonder what kind of ride lies ahead.
