Well, the PRE holidays, anyway.
Twice a year I manage to get home to Germany and visit my friends and family, and this time although I can't make it right at Christmas, I will be there for the start of the Christmas markets and festivities, and since I am a big fan of Christmas, it's my favorite time of year to visit. I'll be there from December 5th through the 11th.
Every one who hears me say that wants to know "why only for 6 days, Bill". It's because I don't go as a tourist and 6 days is long enough.
You know what they say about fish and visiting relatives right?
"The first few days are okay, but after a while it begins to stink."
This year is also a sad time to visit, since I have an uncle with lung cancer who isn't doing so well and this could very well be my last time to see him alive.
He will not be told of the AD, and I am wondering about telling my best friend. I know he would understand and empathize, but hell, it's Christmas and I don't feel like going over there and dropping the "Alzheimer's Bomb" and pooping on the party, as it were.
Something to think about.....
So did you watch the movie about Alzheimer's last night at 9? I had to work, and forgot to set the DVR, so I guess I'll have to catch it when it comes back around. I read the reviews and apparently Joanne Woodward and Richard Kiley were great in it.
Hope you have a great rest of the weekend. It's cold as well-digger's butt down here in Georgia!
Thanks for your visit!
