Herring, I enjoyed the video of John Denver and Perlman. Two faves.
Joe sounds like a good day. Glad your nephew did well and that you were there to support him.
BC, exhausted hearing about your projects. I want a new kitchen in the worst way but have to start over saving it since I just spent all my money on those damn dental bills, air conditioner and water heater. It's always something. But al lest I'm out of debt. Glad that you can support your community with a vigil because we all are one.
NSIME, short term memory deficits in the elderly can be something. I took care of a 95 year old man this week just like that. Kept asking the same questions, kept pulling off his hip dressing and multiple IVs. "Oh I'm in the hospital? Why am I here? Where are my clothes" over and over. I called the building he lived in spoke to management, it's an senior only apartment place but independent living. They said he had no next of kin on record for many years. He told me he was married twice and had no children and outlived all eight of his siblings. Two MDs had to sign his surgery was medically necessary. I would presume with 8 siblings he would at a niece or nephew or several but no one ever came around and he was alone. One neighbor came by who drove him to the store for groceries begged us not to send him home. Social worker had to use some sort of "social worker decision" to place him in a nursing home. The apartment (of which he remembered his address well) said he was not allowed to come back as his place was a total disaster and he couldn't live alone. Such a sad situation.
Also took care of a 86 year old dementia that did the same thing in keeping track of her son's every move.. "Where is Ed?" her son who was by her side much of the time "I'm right here", but had to leave to work after two days. Occasionally she would ask for her deceased husband.
Personally, I'm not getting old.
Felling well, just still tired. Can't shake this fatigue. Slept another 12 hours off and on. I should be totally rested but am not. Hopefully, I'll perk up as the day goes on. No big plans but would like to tackle mowing the back yard.
