Truth is Opossums do not fake it, they actually faint. It is an involuntary reflex when you scare them. lol They also release a dead smell when they faint so predators leave them alone unless they are the type that do not care if it's a fresh kill. Great preservation reflex! lol

Mailman was LATE, but he came to my door with his arms loaded with boxes and packages. Seems everything I ordered arrived the same day. Wow. What fun, it was like Christmas in May!

So now I have 1000+ minutes on my TracFone, a new computer mouse, a new lighted keyboard, 100 bags of Stash English Breakfast Tea, 2 old style extension cords (the ones with 2 regular ends instead of the new ones with a multi end).

I'm having such fun!

Sorta, it is so much fun to get packages in the mail. Now, getting the bills for the packages is not quite so much fun.

I'm heading up with a book. Sweet dreams ya'll sleep

Howdy everybody. wave

I went it to work at 10:00 this morning and discovered after I got there that my schedule was for 11:00. oops

Therefore I set my alarm for 6:00, and woke up and came home then, instead of at 7:00. grin

We had two other people there in my department anyway. They didn't need me.

Had a little drama here at home with my mom. Her Doctor, based on her age and her heart condition, advised her not to drive anymore, which we have taken to heart, but mom has not. frown

After she went to the store on her own two days ago, I disabled her car, and today when I got home she asked me to start her car. rolleyes

I told her I don't need to start it because I know it won't start, and she said "well I'll get a mechanic over here tomorrow." slapforehead

You try and talk to her, and besides being almost deaf, she tunes you out completely when she doesn't want to hear what you're saying, so I'm going to have to draft a letter for her to read. help

She's extremely strong willed, and stubborn. razz

I hope you're all having a nice evening.

joe

Oh Joe, I know the agony of trying to stop a parent from driving when they become dangerous to themselves and others. I'll be sending you some good vibes that all goes well with your mom.

When my Dad got Dementia he crashed into a 'car club' of 9 classic Volkswagons that were stopped on a Freeway off ramp. He just failed to stop causing a chain reaction tail to front collision of all of them.

He didn't report the accident to DMV and lost his license, his insurance paid (thank goodness) but then cancelled his car insurance. Despite all this, he continued to drive.

We took his keys but he found others somewhere. Finally I told him he wasn't safe to drive and would cause injuries and damage. His reply was, "I don't care, I don't care if I kill them all". At that point, I knew my Dad wasn't in there anymore and we took the car so he couldn't get at it.

My mom, on the other hand, surprised us all by voluntarily giving us her keys when she knew she wasn't good to drive. Saved us a lot of heartache.

Hang in there with your mom, be vigilant and hopefully she will realize you are right. I'll be praying for all of you. hearts

Sorta the last time my sister was in the car with mom driving, mom pulled right out in front of an oncoming car. The guy was able to avoid hitting mom, but was extremely angry. mad

Thanks for the good vibes. My sister is going to contact the mechanic tomorrow and fill him in, so we know he won't be coming to fix her car.

No problem as long as she doesn't find another mechanic. smirk

I have one set of her keys, and my sister had the other set which mom found by going through my sister's things. They were hidden in my sis's housecoat pocket. slapforehead

If I have to I'll put a lock on mom's car wheel. Then it ain't going anywhere for sure.

Thanks for the prayers and good vibes. wink

joe

Aw Joe, Hugs!! That is a hard thing to go through. Gladly my mom made the decision herself and my dad died young so I didn't have to go through all of that. Prayers that she understands that it is in the best interest for all that she not drive anymore.

Sorta that surely was something to have to go through. Glad he finally stopped driving. Good for your mom!!

Well I am heading for my pillow. Night all sleep well and pleasant dreams!

sleep
Nan
