Selective Memories

When I got back from the grocery store, Mom told me how she watched three deer wander through the field behind our house. Entirely plausible...we've seen up to six at a time in the same area.

Then, while watching The Ellen DeGeneres Show, mother told me how she'd gone for several rides with Ellen. They'd gone out and about and Ellen had dropped her off at her house. On further probing, that house was the one where she lived growing up.

So, I ask you, did she see the deer or not?!?

Perhaps the question is not about the deer! Perhaps the question is: Did she not really see the deer, but had gone cruzin' with Ellen?

...it's entirely possible that she did go cruizin with Ellen ..I guess...I am helping my sisters with my mom, who was hospitalized for 10 days with a blood clot,and has been home from the hospital for only a week now...mom has Dementia...or if you talk to the next doctor, its Alzhiemers...but I regress, mom has gotten 3 times as bad in this past week than she has ever been...My heart is hurting, losing my very intelligent mother to this horrific disease...I am going to be coming back often to read your blog...it DOES help, when you realize there are other people going through this illness too!
