15. I told The Gio

The first thing we need to do with the disaster in Acri is fix up the in law - so my mother can stay with us or visit.

It's done! And our building is just down the hill from my in laws. Both his mom(71) and my mom (65) come from people that live well into their 90's so we are kind of looking at the next 30years.

I'm already paying into the medical system there for myself and they are all about "family". So there are things we could do when I become a citizen to make sure my mom has health care if she decides she wants to live there.

You might be surprised what services Guatemala offers for elderly parents. At least look into it.

Re our Grandmothers - remember - they did have it far worse. Now my Gramfeathers (Maternal Grandmothers Mom) and I were very close. Irish Methodist - but don't let that fool you . . . I still have a few of her dresses from the 1920's. My mom brought my dad into her house and she literally said: Hello beautiful. All I see is Army Green! :rolling:

She is smiling down on us. Not so much my brother - she was never one for little boys in general as she had two girls . . . But the first time she held me - she wrote me in a letter before she died - she became a black woman.

She's smiling down on you. You can love who you want to love - finally! But! Her mother didn't do that hunger strike to have that vote taken away. She's winking at you - but that Irish ability to hate has her spitting nails on the other side.

I think she'd say - love and wine first.
