The Gloria Bow

It was Thanksgiving weekend so to stay with plan/tradition, Joe “let” me put the Christmas tree up (read: he puts it up and I help because it’s 9′ tall and I’m only slightly more than half of that and it’s just too big for me to handle). Tradition dictates that the ornaments may or may not go up on the same day to tree is assembled – in fact, this year they did not – but whenever I start hanging them (except for the ones at the top 2 feet of the tree, which I can’t reach even with my step stool…again, a “Joe job”.

Different patients, different personalities, different diagnoses, different abilities and problem areas, you name it and every day is an adventure. Some days and some patients are more challenging than others, but at least it’s always different.

Getting My Wrist Slapped

Sometimes a person will do something and they know it’s not on the up-and-up so of course they shouldn’t be surprised when they wind up experiencing repercussions. But sometimes you do everything according to the book and Read more…

Please Don’t Do That in Public!

We were at the airport the other day, as we were scheduled to pick some friends up from their international flights. While waiting, I heard this one-sided conversation from Read more…
