One Is The Loneliest Number

The Road Traveled Alone.

I was going to write this last night, but just didn't get around to it. One is the loneliest number, and there's a reason I say that.

It's after 7:00 pm on a Saturday night and here I sit, alone. Alone with my thoughts, my smoke and my coffee. Everyone else in the family is out having fun and here I am standing watch, again.

It really is the solitude that gets to me and it's every day.

Something else notable happened last night, I received this tweet from @dadmesa: "@DanGumm I am with you dan my wife at 61 has Alzheimer's and in a memory care home . She is part of the 200,000 with early on set".

I read this and tweeted back, "thanks." before the message really sank in. Once I realized what the message really said, I tweeted: "that's really to bad. I feel for you"! I really do feel bad about this, I can't imagine what life would be like if that happened.

That's why I think Alzheimer's is such a devastating disease.
