“ Memorial Day isn’t just about honoring veterans, its honoring those who lost their lives. Veterans had the fortune of coming home. For us, that’s a reminder of when we come home we still have a responsibility to serve. It’s a continuation of service that honors our country and those who fell defending it. ”
― Pete Hegseth

I haven’t been on to post a real post in some time now. I want to thank my followers for their kindness.
Firstly, this is mainly due to the awful new upgrades WP has implemented with the dashboard changes. I get extremely frustrated trying to work with the posting tools and so on.
I like it when I can easily come in and put a post together without hunting the globe trying to find the controls I have been familiar with. So I gave up in a way…not to worry, though…when my patience returns, I will return in a little more regular posting.
Too many changes at once.
Then, more recently, a personal problem, which concerns the caregiving needs of my ailing mother has developed.
One day I woke up and discovered (several years ago, actually, when Dad died) that I went from being a parent’s child to being the parent’s parent.
It is a sad time, wrought with hard choices and limited options from which to base choices.
Sometimes I wish I could be 5 again…
