It's my name, Mom!
She couldn't remember my phone number either. It's on the card taped right next to the phone.
I think it's time to look for a retirement home...
RaZ Sorry to hear about your Mom. Perhaps you could start with some part time in home care. That is what I have for DW and it is working well so far.

Those are guinea fowl - very noisy and irksome, but incredibly tasty! We had some; himself couldn't stand the noise so we ate them - worse than pea fowl (noise-wise, haven't eaten any peafowl so don't know about the taste).
They also make a very good alarm system. Nova when you move out here you will find there are 1000's of them just free ranging everywhere. In the yards in the trees in the streets!

Have to do a second coat and then will start working on the rest...but at least it's not that horrible mint green anymore!
this is the opposite side with 1 coat of paint. Going to replace that little board we didn't paint and the 2 runs will come off that same wall.
Not going to use that corregated roofing stuff...found out it's pretty expensive!!
AWESOME There's a girl after me own ugly heart. See if ya look in "my coop" you will see that 2 of mine started worse than that. now if ya do a little white trim and a few decorations. It will be ready to rent out soon!
