Yes, I’ve been away for a while. That said, I published a couple of posts in 2020 and I don’t know what happened to them.
The most important one is the news that I lost my mother, The Tough Old Broad™, last year. She did not pass away from Covid. I think she was lonely because everything was shut down and she had no visitors. Even though she understood (sort of) that we weren’t allowed to come to visit her, I think the lack of companionship from loved ones really affected her. She would have been 100 this year, so her emotions were delicate.
That said, she did tell the nurses that she was sick and tired of “eating that so-called shit that you people call food,” a couple of days before she passed. Feisty till the end!
The photo, by the way, is one that I took when we were out several years ago celebrating her 90th birthday. We were in Downtown Vegas and she loved
fondling hugging the statue! And for those of you who Mom well, I’m sad to say that she did not “get some” before she passed. She had hoped for an interlude with a young (under 80) man before she left us.
