    My Dad just called here. Dad is 89 and lives in Florida. He's getting a tad bit senile, which is sometimes frustrating, sometimes leaves me scratching my head.

    DH answered the phone and I went in there to take the call as soon as Dad asked for me, as I was sure he would.

    Dad asked DH for our address again. The fact that there's no street name in our address, just a county road number, confuses my dad the city boy. DH gave him our address yet again and patiently explained to him what the numbers meant. Then DH asked Dad if he would like to talk to me.

    Dad said no, he didn't have time to talk to me. [​IMG]

    I'm gonna go pout now. (It worked when I was a kid). [​IMG]

    I understand a lot better than I wish I did. It is out of your control.

    How is his hearing. My dad does this because he still refuses to admit that he has a hearing problem. He got tested. Higher ranges are almost gone for him so he really probably struggles with my voice where my husbands deep voice is probably a bit easier.

    Maybe he had to rush off to mail you something special.

    Quote:Yeah, the conversation between DH and I went something like this:

    DH - what do you think he wanted our address for?

    Me - How should I know?

    DH - Well he's your father!

    HeatherLynn, his hearing is fine. His eyesight is failing.

    Well, you know us men can only handle one thing at a time. If he'd have talked to you, he would have forgotten why he called in the first place. He IS a man. [​IMG] [​IMG]
