Barney Stinson is the character that "Doogie Howser" plays. If his character weren't a total caricature I might share your view but since it's so over the top I find I really like it. There's no attempt to glamorize that type of person. It totally pokes fun at it. Neil Patrick Harris is a very talented guy and does a great job portraying Barney. The guy that meets the mother is the Ted Mosby character. We're still searching for his wife to be. Ah, so Millie's playthings got taken away by the gardener. That would certainly make the world less visually stimulating for her. Although with winds like that all kinds of stuff could be blowing around. Still it's nothing like they're experiencing in the NorthEast. I hope they can get power back to everyone soon. I do suspect that Dad has early stages of Alzheimer's. His mom had it and it really devastated him to watch her go through it. Obviously he doesn't like the idea that that's in his future. It's hell to outlive your brain. We'll see what happens with this next batch of doctor appointments and maybe the memory clinic can do some real good. Yes, that is in fact me in that picture...well, five years ago me. Betsy and I were chatting today and she mentioned an interest in climbers on Half Dome. It occurred to me that a comix about hiking to the top of Half Dome would be kind of fun. Getting to the top is an accomplishment and I had no problem sharing that I'd done it twice. Adding the picture with my niece seemed appropriate and it's the only picture I have of me up there. So enjoy it and don't look for a repeat cause it ain't happening.

It's tough to shut down or temper those protective momma instincts, even if you're inclined to try, which I suspect you're not. Boy, it's unfortunate your mom had the viewpoint that she did. It seems like your world could have been a whole lot bigger a whole lot sooner if she'd been more open-minded. You did fine making your world bigger once you got to call the shots, though. There aren't too many pictures to upload. I'll post a few before long. Becky didn't get to go swimming. Now that I know the rules, I'm not inclined to break them. Poor Becky gets up there and can sense all that water and just wants to go, go, go. I took a few pics of the folks yesterday but didn't have them take their sunglasses off so they look more like the travel shots that they are rather than portraits. The doctor appointment went well enough. We're going to do some testing to rule out other causes of the memory and confusion things that have been coming up for Dad. Ultimately we're going to get a referral to their "memory clinic". Evidently they have a decent program to potentially diagnose Alzheimers and plenty of therapies to assist in adapting day to day lives to function better and try to stave off more deterioration. That will be a future appointment. Ah, the heater kicking in...yet another sign of the changing season. I still haven't turned mine on as yet but the time will come. We even might get some more rain on Thursday. I do like Mike and Molly. It certainly has it's good moments. I'd have to say the Big Bang Theory is my favorite, though How I Met Your Mother is good too. Did you venture outside? How was it?

I am home and have been for a while. I've been editing photos. I'm off to bed soon and have doctor appointments with the folks in the morning so it will probably tomorrow afternoon before you see much out of me. I'm sure that J will be fine even if his nerves get rattled a bit. I know that has to be tough on you. So you have singing talent, eh? That's not something I was blessed with. I'll bet that was fun to do those competitions...particularly when you have success. Poor Millie...it doesn't sound like she enjoyed the outing nearly as much as when it's warmer and the air is more still. I'm off to bed. I hope you got to sleep without trouble.

The cake was for NCcharmer..oh my, I wonder who I sent Bubs and Boz to? Looks like we are going to keep all six of the kittens and take care of them together. I don't think anyone wants them anyway. When I answer your last email it will be a long one because I have a lot to tell and ask you. My hand is still hurting and swollen, I am putting silver on it and taking it by mouth also, hopefully that will prevent a Doctor visit. If I have to I will lance it and apply silver salve, anything is better than the Doctor. Are you still getting rain? It is raining and windy here, I have to go to the river in it and check on and feed the ferals. Lubs you, Y.O.M.

Glad to see you are on, at least I know you are ok. We haven't had anything much yet, just a little rain and some wind gusts. My thoughts and prayers are with you to stay ok. My sister made some pics of the three last kittens Greta, Boz, and Resalynn, they are really growing. I hit my right hand with clippers I cut bushes with this evening and my knuckle is swollen and cut right where old Arthur resides, makes it hard to type. Take care in this storm. Luv, Y.O.M

Break out the brooms!!! If you're a Giants fan it was great fun. For the poor Tiger fans they can at least take solace in a strong effort tonight. People are shooting off fireworks around here...Miss Becky is not amused.We'll wait a bit for it to calm down before we head out one last time tonight and then I can start drooling on my pillow. Have fun tomorrow...stay warm.

Okay, losing power with lots of snow on the ground is not a fun thing. I never think about that out here in the land of sunshine. I just talked to the folks and started the conversation by asking if they still wanted to go...duh! My camera bag is all packed up and all my lenses and filters are cleaned. I'll make sammies and drink a cup of coffee before I take a quick shower in the morning. I'll load Becky up in the car and we'll stop by our favorite piddle spot and walk for a bit before we go grab the folks. It should be a fun day. Okay, that's it. The Tigers should have to forfeit the game just because of their national anthem and God Bless America selections. I'm not usually one to speak ill of any of our military personnel but that just stunk!
