Thursday morning I'm heading to Southwest Missouri to visit my mother, who, because of what seemed like a stunningly swift onset of dementia, has had to move to a nursing home. About that — and I'm putting this mildly — she is not at all happy. She cannot comprehend why she isn't home; a question she asks in exactly the same words roughly every 60 seconds.
So, as you can imagine, this is going to be a difficult visit. At any rate, I'll return Sunday afternoon. If I've an internet connection at the old homestead — my mother's old homestead, that is — perhaps I'll post now and then. Such a connection can be, however, rather dicey.
Have a good weekend.
