    Actually, Dad is older than Mom. She is only 69. Yes, she started showing symptoms at 55. Sigh. He's never shown any memory issues himself and is in good health after a few years of blip due to...

    My stepmother, his wife, says she hasn't noticed that kind of decline, though. But I did report the conversation to her, just to ask. Will keep an eye out for further.

    Warning: Long. This is a vent. Just letting off frustration. I know that there is an emotional shock here involved on the part of the other parties. But still, it's frustrating.

    With all due respect, you didn't hear her or see her (regularly for four years). I did. Her attitude both before her abortions and after was totally casual toward it.

    It has always struck me as one of if not the most selfish thing you can do. Not talking about people with a terminal illness, which is a little more of a gray area, but other people. My best friend...

    Don't do much hauling, but yes, a gas engine. My Ford truck (finally deceased at 400,000 miles) did all sorts of farm work plus all hauling. The only major repair I ever had was the transmission at...

    I would rather be trapped in a classroom of 20 blackboards with fingernails at work on all of them.

    It is interesting, the variety in people.

    This guy is a total love bug. He's sold on me at this point. The other cats are adapting, getting into curious nonhissing watching now at times.
