This blog was formerly dedicated in 2009 to my Dad who died of Alzheimer's in 2013. It's been three years now...and I find myself missing blogging...so I am re-inventing my blog... because, after all, life is about moving through, and going forward...

Mariachi Madness...

Happy Cinco de Mayo everyone!!
                                                  
The nursing home had a Cinco de Mayo celebration today.  One of the nurses called me (HOORAY!!) to inform me that Dad slipped out of his wheel chair and landed on his boo-tay.  Apparently, Dad lovin' the Mariachi music; he was "rockin' out", chair dancin' in his wheel chair, got carried away, and fell.

Thankfully, he was not bruised or hurt.  He had no complaints other than the Aides who were helping him get back in his chair, were hindering him from swinging his arms and snapping his fingers!

I had to laugh.  I can just see Dad swingin' and a swayin' to the music.  If I had been there, I would have been dancin' with him!
