My Black Friday stuff I ordered from Stuckey's is shipping. Folks are going to get old time gifts that should bring them back in time. I'm excited. I also ordered myself an "Eat Here & Get Gas" T-shirt.

He can't remember other old friends or events. Very sad to hear, such a nice man. One time out in the hills on a windy day he came back looking for me after I had been dropped and he pulled me to the end.

I'm sorry to hear that about your friend.

The slow failing of the human body and mind is hard to watch. We've been witness to the creeping decline of my step-father as vascular dementia ground away at the sharpness of one of the most interesting and intelligent humans I've ever known. Yesterday afternoon, the last of the flickering lights went out, and he passed peacefully. We are currently wading through a mixture of anguish and relief left in the wake of his exit.

My friend is married to a relative of Glen Campbell and she told me some stories about him. Seemed like he was a good guy.

Sorry Eric. Saw that with a friend's husband a few years back. Great guy, had some fun rides with him and dinners, etc. At first we thought he was just being difficult but it soon became obvious.

I had a similar thought but then I thought "charming" was the wrong word for what that was.

Thanks, John. I watched my boss go though it with his wife a while back, as well.

Aww, sad. Worse for his family than for him, though.

Sorry. That’s so hard.

My dad had vascular dementia, plus a series of largish, but “silent” strokes and ended up losing his autobiographical memory while he was still clear enough to know he didn’t know who he was anymore. That’s rare and we would have been fascinated and presented him at rounds when I was a neurology resident, but this was just sad, sad, sad.

Sorry to hear that. It's like watching them being un-written, bit by bit.

I sent another message via the patient portal to the doctor I originally saw and an hour later I received a call. I will probably have my procedure done next week on Thursday or Friday. It's been one huge cluster...
