I had the Dr. write him an order to go out today for a few hours. It was called a psycho-social leave.
Not sure who needed a psycho leave the most, but it could have been me. Or my sister Nancy. Yeah, it was her. No wait......this was about my Dad. We must leave our own issues aside. Sorry.
So, yes, we took a ride to Nantasket Beach. The parking God's were looking down on me, and I got a handicapped spot with a bench right there just waiting for my Dad to sit on and breathe in the good fresh Atlantic air.....feel the breeze, hear the sounds of the waves and the seagulls, and smell the salty air.
Of course, Mom was THRILLED to be sitting beside the love of her life at one of their favorite places.
I have to share this image because I just love the body language:
LOVE IS AGELESS, RIGHT?
I have something very special to tell you about this next image. See the nail polish on my sister Nancy's toes?
Well, she bought that nail polish in 1999 and it's still useable today....get this.....it doesn't even have any clumps. How do yah like that!!
Okay, back to the day. After we left the beach, we stopped for ice creams and Dad ate his entire dish of ice cream.
He was exhausted when we brought him back, and he went right to bed to lie down. It was a great day!!!
