This blog is about life with my husband who was diagnosed with Early Onset Alzheimer's and Frontal Lobe Dementia in 2008. He was 64 at the time although now, knowing more about the disease, Alzheimer's was present many, many years ago, which is why early detection is so important. As you read the blog the character"Al" that I created in 2008 represents the way that Alzheimer's is invading our daily lives.

Living with Bob and "Al"

Sheri has been feeling that desperate "the frozen tundra is closing in on her" feeling as of late, so she has been heading to the park with Bob and "Al" after work each day to capture the fall color before it is gone. At one of the local parks yesterday there happen to be a tremendous amount of geese and we all no what geese bring... a tremendous amount of goose droppings. The grassy areas were littered with it to the point it was hard to walk on the grass... and it was a huge park. "Al" was frustrated about droppings and stopped in his tracks and in his infinite wisdom said " you know, all they need to do is get some screen and roll it out over the grass, then all they have to do is pick it up and empty it." Sheri forgetting about his broken reasoning button jokingly replied " But that wouldn't work they would have to cover the whole park." "Al" replied "well, the government does not have anything else to do,  they are shut down."
Sheri chuckled to herself  because THAT was almost the most sensible thing Bob has said in a while. Even though "Al" did not realize it. LOL  :)
