    EFFIE, Fred and I went to a play and we read the small cast and it looked good.
    We went in our car and there were seven of us. Fred and I seats are in the middle of the very first row. We have been a long time and when his eyes were getting worse they waited for someone from the front row. At first I stayed back and he was in the front row and soon they had seats together.

    It was a Play about Dementia and Fred was not so happy with this play. He asked me if he wanted to go home I said no. The second half was even more depressing.
    As people around us were waiting for the crowd, and they were talking and most of them were disappointed. It is a big theater, and the audience were saying where are the COMEDIES. We wanted them too. The Theatre is over 25 miles one way. I could have sparked for the day but we went with friends in separate cars. We went for lunch and they were going to dinner. I needed to go home for certain

    I am waiting for Monday, I have heard of another Neurologist and I feel better but I have others in Maine. My Dr and DH helped us over twenty years in Augusta so I am planning to ask his advice. He retired and went to Gerontology and he retired again. I used to sew his jacket linings. He loved wool coats and sports coats so I will write to him if he has some time. I hope so.

    EFFIE, I did the three hours I did well with drawing and writing but when he asked how many letters I said I just could not do them. I forgot the as soon as he said another letter.
    He asked if I had been to a Neurologist and I told him NO. He told me we had three Neurologists went to the VA and our hospital found one. That means the appointment will be about 6 months.
    I will telephone around and ask for my old Dr. He was the preceptors for he students. He just retired. Got to go, I will catch up-- Pat. emoticon emoticon emoticon

    Hi there. Stephen is doing well. We had the big snow so I wanted to go but I cannot now.
    Our younger son is ready to buy a house. Alas at the last minute the people would not pay for the items they had said they would. There were some stairs that had hand rails and now the realtor is busy to get the house ready to move their house so we are a bit out of touch. They were excited. Our DIL has been working nights and she has been asked to go to the civic center she was hired because she knew the ropes from las Vegas.
    The two days she went to do the other job she had Pneumonia and she still went to work. I am admiring her hours I has worked so hard. They have seen 7 houses and they want to have Emily to the best public school. She is still in the Virtual School and it is very expensive. She went to the school her Dad did but they built a big school and put junior high and high school. She came home one day and told us she was not learning in that school. She wanted to be home schooled in Las Vegas.
    Her other Grandmother paid the tuition. She is hoping to go to a good school out of town and our son and daughter want to have goats and they want to do the gardens. I used to plant but the boys did not enjoy it. Our son is a great cook now and he does the cooking.
    I was hoping to come to Wisconsin but alas I am being to be evaluated for my brain. I took medication for the Dr. said it was depression, then I lost my speech, another Dr. evaluated and I was perfectly fine with those books. He said it was anxiety and I took the medication and now the Dr. said it was the wrong medication and my memory is shot memory. I try to find my words and now I have to slowly wean my medication and it is just a week . I have 4 Drs. this two weeks. Fred has been great and I can not blog or write very much.
    I just wanted to let you know because I see your face every day so tonight I told someone I am kind of scared because of the wrong medication.
    You are the person I have told first, I am so embarrassed I can not remember my words. I did lost my speech and I have the computer and I can still right. emoticon for listening emoticon emoticon How old is your G.S. Do you see him a lot, I hope so!

    Hi EFFIE, I am so out of touch right now. Our Son was hospitalized and he had his gall bladder out. There was snow and wind and I wanted to go to see him.
    I talked with him and he told me he had pain in his chest and the Dr's found nothing in scanning. At one point they saw his gall bladder with big gall stones so they took him to the other surgeons and did a Cholecystectomy and he is doing better. He was home last week and it was his birthday. I checked out the price to go to Wisconsin from Portland. It was a time we had a lot of snow. The fare was very cheap. Less than $100 return for me. Fred said the snow was bad and he did not want to go and I will have to go with you.
    I am doing very little with Spark. There are so many ads and I think it looks like a page from Facebook. I got a page and I was contacting a nephew and it was awful things he was saying and I took it off my computer.
    We have had a few nice days but by Friday we will have snow and high winds.
    Where are you going to go abroad. We are going to a day with senior college. It starts in March and we will look at the waterfalls after the snow is melting rapidly so the streams and rivers are awesome. We have seen them but it was a while back.
    I am sorry I am doing things too slowly because of the changes, I just can not understand about apps and other stuff. I am just bouncing around. I still do the concert once a month. I have to shopping for the refreshments and we have been 200 people last time. Fred and I are still on the committee and most times I have to do it myself. One lady came and she does not want to do it. It is a big responsibility and she was out of her depth. I have ask a couple of people to help me. If not I will not take the responsibility and the refreshments will have to go. We have had the concerts about 10 years and no-one else wants to do the refreshments. We shall see.
    I do hope you are both staying well.
    We still have our family in the basement and they have looked at 5 houses. One was old and beautiful -tin ceilings but the roof was rotten and when we looked at the foundation of Huge slabs of Granite blocks and I could see the outside sky. They loved it and the realtor went round with them, they had Asbestos, Lead paint, lots of Mold and our GD has Asthma and the well needed deepening and the veranda around two sides and it was breaking away from the roof. They are still looking, they are both working and they want a place that has a bit of land. The house they are looking at was a newer Gambrel Roof and upstairs but NO basement and 6 acres. The realtor and the bank are looking at the price.

    Hi there we are looking out for Freezing rain tomorrow in to SUNDAY. We have a concert. Our Symphony were our entertainment for Sunday. All three of our kids were in the Augusta Symphony.
    I usually go out to buy the refreshments on Friday but we will wait till Saturday night. Then we have to tell people if it's freezing rain, we will have to go for a next Snow date. Next Sunday.

    How are you doing over the weekend. Do you have a lot of ice and snow where you are. I hope we can have this Sunday because the Symphony is quite big and some of the musicians have a long drive. I am trying to get some time to get out to find some bulbs. I want to buy flowers for Stephens Birthday and I am looking for some tall handsome flowers. I have to look up on the flower gardens to think about some tall perennials
