The next week I received a call from the powers-that-be at Mom's retirement home. Mom had 7 speeding citations and was refusing to go to remedial driving classes. I called Mom to tell her that the classes were mandatory if she wanted to keep her chair. She went - but not happily. She passed the class with flying colors - but continued to speed. They put a governor on her engine.
I guess now is the time to also announce that at 94 she has started dating too. Fine dining every Thursday night with a gentleman named Paul. Last Thursday he invited her up to see his apartment. That is about all she would tell me. I think that's best. So - until later - Happy Halloween!
