Of course, I'm not sure that we'd have been at the game at all had it been outside; the temperature hit triple digits when we entered and was not much cooler when we left
I haven't seen G'ma in a while; I forgot that she was my destination yesterday afternoon and ended up at the grocery store instead.
I think I'm avoiding dealing with her electric chair. The caregivers are amused by the fact that she forgets about the footrest and the reclining back. They find her sitting upright with her feet propped on her walker. She says she's comfortable. She doesn't want to disturb herself and practice with the controller. They are at a loss. I now have something new over which to obsess: I gave away my mother's couch and now she's even more confused than before.
I'm wondering when the Democrats will stop eating their young. President Obama has had 2 years to clean up a mess which took 8 years to build (okay.... 16 if you want to blame Bill Clinton for thinking that everybody should own a home). Sure it's a jobless recovery. Sure people are out of work; I am related to many of them. But think about the alternative:
Not only does she think that the Founding Fathers abhorred slavery, she demonstrates an epic fail here in her attempt to tell Fox News that President Obama is audacious. Of course, any New Yorker - Jewish or not - could pronounce chutzpah with the appropriate throat gargle, but listening to Michele Bachmann choo choo choo her way through it shows that she certainly can't.
Betty Ford was laid to rest in the Gerald R. Ford Museum.
I do not want to spend eternity in a museum, and I am surprised that my favorite-until-I-met-Michelle Obama-first-lady-of-all-time thought she'd be comfortable there. Perhaps she liked the idea of being around people on a regular basis. I always imagined that she'd be a great girlfriend. I know that besides demystifying addictions and breast cancer and being comfortable with the fact that her kids smoked weed, she gave the best marital advice I've ever heard:
Give 70%. Expect 30%.*****
