I hope everyone is ok and not stuck in a bad snow storm or blizzard. Our high here in TX is a roasty and toasty 66. Sorry you snow bound folks, keep warm.
We are all doing pretty well here in TX. Mom and Dad seem to be well. They had an interesting time while I was gone on my extremely WET camping trip. Mom and Dad went to a Baptist-type huge revival. It was some well known (to those who know) man who claims to heal people. Liz asked if she could take them, I thought what the heck. I was going to be questioning my Catholicism, if Mom got up and walked out of her wheelchair like this dude claims to do.
I got back home and the folks were the same, who would of guessed. Mom still doesn't talk or walk and Dad is still the same. So my Catholicism is still intact. But on the serious side, the ladies took M&D to this revival not once, but twice!! One time they didn't get home till 11:30pm!!! Anna was really getting worried about them, but figured, there wasn't a police officer showing up at the door.
Dad was amazed that he went somewhere where there was this big guy preaching on a huge TV screen. He was telling everyone about the big man. He didn't mention anything else about it. I told Mom, I had no idea they would take them twice, and I had no clue that they would stay out that late. She just gave a stern look, I did apoligize to her and said I wouldn't let them take then out that late again, and she smiled at me.
Now yesterday, I was a bit late getting over to see them, I had to take the kitten to the vet so they could look at her incision. Well, she has been licking on it, so now she is on antibiotics and has to wear an elizabethen collar. She hates it alot!!! Anyway, I was sitting in their bedroom doing the pills, and Liz told me that Mom was waiting for me to come. I asked her how she knew that and she said that at 4pm Mom looked at the clock in the room, then to the door. She was getting a bit agitated. Liz told her at about 4:15, that I had to take the kitten to the vet, and would be late. Mom calmed down then and was ok till I got there about 4:30. I think this is wonderful! She is aware of the time of day, has picked up my schedule, and wants to see me, eventhough sometimes I get the "hand" as soon as I get there. I guess I have made an unofficial schedule and need to keep it!!
Tomorrow, Friday, I am letting Liz take the van and she is having an outting with them to the Livestock Show. She is going to bring her hubby and kids too. I told her that there is alot to do and see there. I suggested they leave at 10 or so in the morning, and could do lunch there. I am going to tell her that she needs to be back at the house by 5pm. They don't need to get caught up in all that traffic.
For those of you who don't know about the rodeo/livestock show, here is a blurb from their website which tells about where M&D et al are/can do. there is much more to see and do. Kids and adults of all ages enjoy the famous pig races; pony rides; petting zoos; agricultural exhibits, such as a bee exhibit, milking parlor, egg hatching station, and more; acres of cattle, sheep, goats, rabbits, llamas, pigs and other livestock; cowboy church; and more. For those who prefer a wild ride, nothing thrills more than the carnival.
I will let everyone know what happens there. They get to have all the fun while we have to work.
Love and hugs to everyone,
