|The weather is cooling a little

Dad let me push his wheelchair outside for a few blocks, so I could mail a letter (my change of address form to register me for the November election). He's brightening up a bit. There's so much to be mindful about- good nutrition, protein supplements, staying hydrated with lots of water, upper body exercises, leg exercises, stretching, his medication, his moods... it's tough to keep on top of everything.|
If I had $20,000 (or more) to spare, I'd hire daily nursing care for him, get myself tickets to see Diane Lane in the current Broadway adaption of Chekhov's "The Cherry Orchid", and take some trips to the beach before the weather gets cold. New shoes, too. Alas, it's not to be.
It's amazing how many people I know in NJ who plan to vote for Donald Trump. It's generally a 50/50 mix of long-time Republicans who vote their party ticket regardless of the candidate, and people whose hatred for Hillary Clinton burns with the heat of a thousand suns. Occasionally, I meet a person who is hoping Trump brings on armageddon, forcing whoever survives to start over and hopefully do better.
