Cars, And Christmas Story Lamp

This is the look of the day today, and then the sun would pop out for a bit, and then go hide again. 70 degrees, shorts weather, yipee!!

I had to go get a leaf blower, and I took Al with me as it was one store. He did very well, and we looked at Christmas toys that are already out before Halloween. The one blurry photo is the action figure moving, so I could not help it. In one of the signs you can see where I snapped the information sign stating you need to turn off here if you want to come see me!

We got home, and Al had so many cars piled up on his table by his bed, I could not even squeeze in his drinking glass for over night sips. I told him we needed to remove two of them and find a new spot for them. He instantly started crying and I knew immediately he did not understand. I explained twice more and he did not get it. I am finding this to happen more and more each day. He doesn’t understand what you are saying, he can not comprehend, unless, you say something simple like, supper is ready, period, no more no less.

He cried so much, I went ahead and found a place for two cars in another spot, and  then realized Parkinson’s was back. It had been hiding all day. I hate confusing Al, but sometimes I just have to butt in and make things right. He did get a big kick out of the Christmas stuff they try to sell you for commercialized holidays, and he even found this big window plastic film that you stick up with stickers. It is the leg lamp from Christmas Story. I placed it in his window and with the day light shining on it, it looks like the lamp is lit. He liked that through the tears. Well this day is almost over thank goodness. Hope he is going to get up for supper, because when he is this confused, he just goes to bed for a nap.

  1. It was around 70′ here today, too, but raining off and on all day. It’s only supposed to be 50′ tomorrow with rain again. I hope your day ends with a smile from Al and peace in his heart and yours. God bless. Wish I could come to visit, but it’s much too far. Besides, I don’t have a passport, so can’t cross the border.


  2. Thinking of you and Al , Terry. Praying for the confusion and tears to fade away tonight. So hard for you both! God bless you and hold you close! Glad you got out a bit.


  3. Regarding Al’s cars – is there no place for thin shelve system in his room where he can put all his cars and can see the cars on display all the time. Nothing fancy – sure a charity shop will have something. Life can be confusing for me at times too … My thoughts are with you both.
