Are You Fella's Here Every Afternoon?

My jaw about hit the floor and then I couldn't stop laughing when Mom asked me that while I made her lunch yesterday. It's still funny! Why? Well first I believe "fella" has a different meaning for people her age and second I was the only one here. 

It was clear she had no idea who I was, so we played the "do you know who I am" game. After a couple minutes the cogs must have came into alignment because she said, "Dan, your name is Dan"

OK, so that was a Star Trek III moment. You know, right at the end of the movie where Spock says, "Jim, your name is Jim". Or something pretty close to that.

After a bit more prodding she remembered I was her son and was elated to see me. That only lasted about a minute though and then she hit me with "do you know where my car is"? It never ends! lol

She had a good afternoon staying up until nearly dinner time. She did get up and eat a little for dinner and slipped back to bed.

I crashed hard for a bit last night--go figure--and Paula got up twice to check on her. I hate it when that happens. but I really needed a couple solid hours of sleep.

My fourth attempt at Windows 10 failed yesterday so I give up on that. No wonder it's a free upgrade.

On a positive note I finished the second book of the "John Carter" series yesterday and am now reading the third, "Warlord of Mars". If you didn't get a chance to look yesterday, here's the link again to a great ebook site, Project Gutenberg. I can't believe I'm promoting an ebook site, all this from a guy that loves real books and said he'd never read an ebook. lol

The picture? It's just and old one of Dad and I. It looks like Mom dressed us though. lol

Have a great day and thanks for reading.

P.S. Please share this post for me. Thanks!
