There was a commercial for some frozen vegetables with a narrator saying these veggies were just like fresh from the garden. Then he said there was no way to improve them and the little girl sitting at the dining table said "You could cover them in chocolate."
My gran had alzheimer's. Close to the end I think enough of her brain was dying that autonimic things were not working so well and she started having dysphagia. Luckily she caught pneumonia before anything else could go wrong.
Ohai, Grammy! I think I understand the lockjaw LoL because I've seen messages you've left to WW. I used to work for an agency that provided 24/hr care and some of the clients needed to be encouraged to eat. They also needed encouragement to eliminate. When I first started working there - in the office - I asked why some clients were stubborn on these issues and the care staff explained about how all people want to have control over their environment. There are daily choices we all make and never question that we have the ability/capability/situation/condition to make those choices. For the people our agency was serving the only control they felt they had was over their bodies. That certainly made me reconsider the behaviour I was seeing.
I have happy memories of my childhood when my family lived just south of Montreal. On summer Saturdays we'd go to Platsburg NY for shopping and then we'd go to a drive-in. We had a stationwagon in those days and mum would dress me in the jammies she'd bought me that day. We'd have a picnic of the stuff we'd got at Grand Union (grocery store) The first movie I actually remember is "Bye Bye Birdie" I thought Ann Margaret was so beautiful. I wanted to grow up to be her.
Thanks for the tip to see the first part of HP7. I agree with you about seeing movies *meant* for the large screen in a theatre. I live close to a sweet little old family-run theatre that still has affordable prices. If we bring our own containers for popcorn and drinks we can purchase those for the re-fill price ~ so that really helps too. My hubby & I can take his grandson and we can get away with paying only $35 for the whole package. :o)
