there was a time when you could hardly find a loaf of bread to buy on a sunday in the u.s. now that blue laws are a distant faded memory we are blissfully and mindlessly shopping for everyThing, every Minute, of every DAY of our adhd driven lives....

Just answered an email from Son #3 and a phone call to daughter. So it is decided. I am getting a wheelchair for my birthday and going out to dinner. I can hardly wait for my 75th birthday. Maybe I will get a coffin. There is a manufacturing plant just a few seconds away from my house. A great place to pick up beautiful scrap wood. Maybe if they get enough son #2 can build it for free. Who cares what it looks like, I am going to be cremated. My kids have me in a contest with my sister. She died at the age of 74. So they want me to outlive her so they can rub it in their cousins face. I have no idea why. I will see what I can do to accommodate them. I don't know which one thought this bright idea up.

Shrek and I purchased matching urns, they are stashed in the closet. My brother knows where they are and he is our DPOA if we are unable to make decisions. I told my brother he got to make all the decisions because he was born too late and is the youngest. I also know he will follow our wishes.

It's after noon, I guess I should throw on some comfies (t-shirt/sweat pants) and get the kitchen done. The dishes Shrek said he would do on Friday are still sitting there. I want to get my new De Buyer pans seasoned today.

Oh ye of great faith. Did you really expect those dishes to disappear? You are surely to be blessed.

my dad was the youngest child in his family--always the baby, twelve whole years younger than his next sib. he had a very close attachment to his mother, and she to him. one day she became quite emotional, admiring a fancy scarlet colored vehicle as it slowly passed by their home. my dad, age five at the time, piped up saying, "mommy, when i grow up, i'm going to buy a car just like that for you." he never forgot that day and that sad unfulfilled promise--the bright fancy vehicle that had caught his mother's fancy that day had been a hearse....
