Been busy. Looking after Mom.

For those of you who remember my Mom and me in the Florida Keys - this is the beginning of the 2013 installment.

I've said before that we have a benefactor who lets us use his condo as long as my Mom lives as token of gratitude in re-payment for her and my Dad helping him rise above what his life birth situation might have afforded by lending him books and talking to him about options. It's been going on for about 15 years, a heck of a token if you ask me.

My Mom, 88 and a half now, has had TWO back operations this year and was at death's door. She lived and struggled in order to come to Florida again, and her tenacity allowed it.
She brought along a friend who had the means to do so and who is suffering a growing inoperable brain tumor, age 84.

Today we played dead women in the pool.
Photos are to show you what's possible.

Mom

2. I bet the

water must feel good to both of them. It's so relaxing and must take a lot of pressure
off of the body.
I'm glad she was able to make the trip again and how wonderful for her friend
to come too!
