It’s late and I’m tired, so these show notes will brief.
Mom Will Be Ending Her Journey Soon
Last week I told about my mother being on hospice at home. Well, she’s no longer at home.
Very early Monday morning, Mom was making her way to the bathroom. Dad had helped her out of bed ad to her walker, but lingered in her room as she went down the hall. As he came out of her room, he saw her lose her balance and fall.
The paramedics were called by Dad and they whisked her to the hospital, believing she had dislocated her knee. It turned out she had actually broken her leg. Oh, boy.
On the show I give some of the details of how her week back at the hospital has been going. My sister Nancy has been staying with Mom. She’s making sure Mom doesn’t feel abandoned and that the medical staff are doing their best for her. Which they are.
As of this writing, Mom is still in the hospital. We have hopes she will moved to a hospice facility in the next day or two.
My sister put it best: “With everything we have been through together this week, I am ready for her to pass. Not ready for her to be gone, but ready for her to be free.”
It May Be Above My Pay Grade…
Why does the 2nd Amendment mention a well-regulated militia and the right of the people? Is there really anything such thing as common sense gun regulations? Why does America seem to have such a problem with gun violence?
I attempted to come up with some kind of regulation to limit the number of guns an individual, not being a member of a well-regulated militia, can own. I considered what to do to allow gun collectors to have more than that limit I suggested.
Would my ideas do any good?
Hell if I know. Pay me more and maybe I’ll come up with better ideas.
Beau Of The Fifth Column might be onto something.

I Want This
It’s been in my parents’ living room for decades. It’s not a great work of fine art, but I love it. It is one thing that my parents own that I have told my siblings that I want. As a youth, I had spent a lot of time gazing at it
There are a number of odd things about this painting. All of them are splashes of colors that don’t seem as though they should be there. I think that somewhere in the process of converting the original to mass produced prints to sell at those “starving artists” events, a few dabs of ink blotted the image.
Those anomalous splashes of color add to my love of this piece of art.
I want it!
