    Rainee, my dad passed a few years back

    wrote about his last days somewhere in this thread

    and thank you

    being with him in his last days were more than precious

    My wife has had three books published, one on the best sellers list, but nothing anyone on this board would be interested in. I find them b-o-r-i-n-g. Of course, I'm not brave enough to tell her that. The real fun is when we go out with another couple from the University that the other lady also teaches English Lit. That's always a fun evening (sarcastically). It's like sitting in a dentist chair for six hours while he drills on the same tooth into the root and nerves.

    I sometimes send my friends a few prose when they complain about insomnia

    Musta worked

    Never a complaint after that
