exhaustd

this is a difficult stage of my life. while I adjust to the infelicities of my own aging I must deal with the decline of my parents. each visit with them is more painful but at the same time we laugh when we can & exhibit love with abandon.

I know those feelings all too well Alex. This weekend I had planned to drive down to see my folks, but I'm having car problems so that visit will have to wait till next weekend. How are your parents doing?

thx for asking Mass. Mom at 85 is valiant in her caring for Dad who'll turn 89 in july. they'd be embarrassd if I chronicld their litany of ills. but she continues to share meals with half the neighborhood & he's tending to those tender plants which will make this summer's garden.
