First, a word about the title: I have always been fascinated with Greek Mythology and always thought of Charon, the ferryman of Hades who carries souls of the newly deceased across the rivers Styx and Acheron as a "cabbie" of sorts, asking me the standard cabbie question: "Where to, Bud?"
Well, who knows, right? I'd like to avoid Hades, of course, and head for the Elysian Fields, but for now, "Just row the boat, Dude, and let's see where we wind up."
I decided, when I first knew I was sick, I wasn't going to fear this disease. As a matter of fact, I decided to laugh at it and battle it with humor and a light heart.
For this reason you're going to see a warning when you first enter the site telling you it contains adult content. I set it up that way because I wanted to let you see the "real me", and the real me takes a lot of poetic license. If you're easily offended by "salty" language, you may want to skip my blog and visit one of the many others dealing with Young Onset Alzheimer's Disease or any of the related dementias.
For those of you who come here for information, learn about my symptoms and my day, enjoy a laugh or two or listen to a tune/video (sometimes appropriate to the blog title for that day), welcome, as that is my format.
At the bottom of every page you will see an icon which you can click to feed homeless pets in shelters all over the US. It costs you nothing to click and you can do it every day, so please help me help them and thanks.
I tend to write the way I speak, so y'all may see a lot of "y'all's" or other Southern colloquialisms. I know it may not be proper English, but it is part of my style of writing, so there ya go!
So, in the words of Alice Cooper, "Welcome to my nightmare. I think you're gonna like it."
