The garage sale was held Friday and Saturday. We raised just over $100 and I still have plenty to get rid of, to give away, to donate or to recycle. Sally and Jake came over to help. Sally and I manned the sale and enjoyed chatting while DH and Jake enjoyed each other hanging out in the family room.
I came in to get coffee and was elsewhere in the house. DH called with a question.
"Just a minute, sweetheart," I said from the bathroom. "I will be there."
When I came out to the family room, I asked "Now what was the question?"
"I forget now," said DH.
"I forgot too," said Jake with a smile on his face. Now I wonder how long it will be before both of our husbands recognize short-term memory, dementia or even Alzheimer's in their new friend!
Later a young couple came over and the men were put to work loading up a love seat in my husband's trailer. The young man, DH and Jake took off with my husband driving. (He really is a good driver and did pass that test.)
Later when the three men returned, I asked the young man how the trip was driving the new furniture to his apartment with two Alzheimer's patients. He said they kept asking him what he did for a living and he kept telling DH and Jake again and again. I am so glad he was patient.
Come by right away if you are interested in something for free before the stuff disappears from the garage. I want to be able to park in the garage again because it is getting colder. On to more household organization and perhaps another garage sale in the spring.
I commented on the Alzheimer's Weekly link above after Dr. Newport. There is a discussion of coconut oil there.
