Oh,half the people on my flights were coughing up a lung. Rude! Planes are a germ factory!

Good Morning! I'm back in Florida after five days with my mother. She has a long recovery ahead of her. The caregivers are wonderful. Mom can be a bit testy,I rolled my eyes at the nurse a couple of times when Mom was difficult. I'm sure the nurse has seen everything. :) Mom has an appointment with her surgical team the end of the month which will give an indiction of her progress going forward. For now,she needs to regain strength and keep a positive attitude.

Good afternoon! MM,we're about 70 miles south of Tampa. I'll be back on the 15th. Meanwhile,back in NH,I'm surprised at the absence of political signs. I saw one lone "AMY" sign driving to my mother's skilled nursing facility. My mother had MSNBC on the TV when I walked into her room. "Really Mom?" When my sister walked in,she said,"this crap gets turned off now!" Ha.

Good Morning! Speaking of Mayor Pete, he's running lots of ads on local NH media. The ads are shallow,feel good cliches. For the amount of money he's probably spending the ads aren't impressive. I'm off to spend more time with my mother. I observed her physical therapy session yesterday. She's making slow progress. I had to smile because Sinatra was playing in the PT room. Ha,imagine the music when we're in the nursing home. Anyway,my mother thinks she's going home in a month. Not happening.

Good Morning from NH! Yesterday was a long day of travel. By the time I got to Manchester,it was already dark and COLD! Jane,we've had chilly mornings in Florida,but I had forgotten bone-chilling. Anyway, I rented a Jeep Cherokee because I wanted to be familiar with the car. I got caught in the Boston/Manchester/Portsmouth commute. I had a minute of panic,because apparently my eyes couldn't adjust to driving at night. I had to take off my glasses so I could see. How weird is that? I'll be with Mom all day,I'm going to observe her physical therapy and get an idea of how she is doing Jane,I can't wait to ride in the new golf cart!

Yeah,when I talked toy sister earlier today about Mom, she said it was pouring rain (southern NH) turning to snow later. I'm not sure if they expect snow in Foxboro.

The speculation is that Brady won't play next year. He's one month older than the daughter.That makes me feel so old!

Good afternoon! I've been watching a butterfly flit around outside the lanai,a delightful sight. The dog is fascinated by it,just watches and doesn't bark.

Well,I just looked at the Bangor Daily online to find the snowfall total for the cabin and guess what I read? Susan Collins told Maine Public Radio in an interview yesterday that it would be inappropriate for Mitch McConnell to co-ordinate the impeachment trial with the White House. *this my shocked face*

The daughter and I watched the Katherine Hepburn as Jo version of Little Women on TCM. I've watched all the versions (except the new one) multiple times. Little Women was my introduction to my reading habit and I've always wondered what Louisa May Alcott would have thought of the movie versions.

Happy Anniversary TLG! I'm staying out of the 2020/2021 discussion also because of math scores. Although I was looking forward to the start of the 21st century version of the Roaring Twenties. Prohibition,Gatsby,The Lost Generation,it was a fascinating time in our history,except the way it ended in 1929.

Jack,it is cloudy and the air is humid,looks like rain. Next week I change from shorts,t-shirt and flip flops to go up north to visit my mother. My Uggs boots are in Maine,so I had to buy a pair of boots for the trip. :) I actually found winter boots in Florida!

MM @ 1:18...John Boehner was anti-marijuana until his daughter married a Rastafarian. :) I've mentioned before that I was an an *event* with the daughter and Boehner excoriated the Tea Party. That seems so long ago. My jaw dropped to the floor,the daughter elbowed me and my eyes were opened.

We watched quite a few TCM movies yesterday,including an anthology of O.Henry stories hosted by John Steinbeck. Last night "The Thin Man" was on and the daughter watched it,although I fell asleep. Fun fact,Asta was the most popular Hollywood dog pre-Toto and Lassie. The daughter said she got lost in Wikipedia hell looking up the actor William Powell. She said,"he was married to Carole Lombard for a hot minute." When the movie started,I told her that Maureen O'Sullivan was Jane in the Tarzan movies and Mia Farrow's mother. We also watched "Little Women" with Katherine Hepburn as Jo. I'm such a crybaby,it doesn't matter which remake of "Little Women",I always cry when Beth dies.
