I went to Brenham last Friday to help my mother by changing out her smoke detector batteries and cleaning her ceiling fans. Yes, a whole visit devoted to that. It took me a couple of hours, because we kept having to stop and discuss the projects she is currently working on.
When I think of my mother's house I see quilts and oriental rugs among all kinds of other mayhem.. A strange and wonderfully colorful combo. Kinda like my mother.
Gus was allowed to go outside, even tho it was raining, so he wouldn't be underfoot.

*I have about $19 in coupons this week!*
My reward for doing maintenance was to get taken to a fried oyster lunch at her favorite restaurant. Yum! But first, the Princess Dog, Gus, must have his muddy paws hand-washed in water heated in a teakettle. Good Night Nurse. That dog is just pure spoilage. He is pretty much her only companion and he is faithful and loving.
I'm glad she has him to keep her company...
who doesn't worry that their elderly parent might be lonely?
