Adventures in Alzheimer’s – inside my mouth edition

July 5, 2015

Mom had jaw pain so Baby girl took her to the walk-in clinic. A dentist appointment was a few days away, and maybe she just had an infection and needed antibiotics. The doc gave her some stupid cream that baby girl was to put inside her grandmothers mouth. With her fingers. Not going to happen. […]

Adventures in Alzhiemers – TV people edition

June 12, 2015

“Why do they watch me? Everywhere I move, they watch me.” “It’s like the Mona Lisa, Mom. Just an illusion. They can’t see you.” She wrings her hands and shifts her eyes from me to the TV and back. “Do you think so?” Yes. Yes I do. Mom has always loved her television time. Now […]

Adventures in Alzheimer’s – racism and homo… euphoria?

June 8, 2015

My mother has never been a racist. She taught us kids not to be, by pure example. But Alzheimer’s is turning her into one. Until those amyloid plaques started mucking with her brain (if that is truly how AZ works), the only group of people she ever had any real disdain for is liberals. What […]

Winner, winner, New York chicken dinner

June 2, 2015

On a whim, I decided to go to Book Expo America this year in New York City. Ok, not so much a whim. I went because I won an award for Mazie Baby, and damn it, I wanted to pick up that little trophy in person. Especially since you don’t get the trophy if you […]

Goody One Shoe

May 27, 2015

I am thrilled to announce release of my latest novel, Goody One Shoe, available on Amazon. This was a fun story to write. A superhero fantasy of sorts, without the fantasy. It centres around Wilhelmina (Billie) Fullalove, 32-year-old virgin and below-the-knee amputee thanks to a shoot-out in an alley when she was 11. Her parents […]

Adventures in Alzheimer’s – microwaves on fire edition

May 25, 2015

Baby girl and the boy who sleeps with her took Mom her meds one morning and discovered the microwave in the bathtub. Turns out, it lit on fire. So Mom’s fix was to pour water into it. Then she wrangled it to the bathroom and dumped it in the tub, then filled the tub with […]

Adventures in Alzheimer’s – I know everyone edition

May 18, 2015

My mom has always had a wide range of acquaintances. Maybe it was due to her years supporting politicians’ campaigns and working in the office of the Member of Parliament for Calgary Centre. Or perhaps it’s just her outgoing nature and ability to talk to anyone about anything at any time… It’s an enviable trait. […]

Warning – foul language ahead

April 8, 2015

Not everyone swears like a trucker (with all due respect to truckers). Some folks go their whole life without one cuss word. That’s kind of like people who never get cavities. How the hell do they DO that? In case you haven’t noticed – I swear. I like the sound and feel of words I […]

Adventures in Alzheimer’s – cold, deep water edition

April 5, 2015

Lately, Mom has been trying to come to terms with death. Well, maybe not coming to terms. She’s begun to assume it is imminent. I gave her a hug the other day and she laid her head on my collar bone and sighed. I sighed too. She used to come up to my forehead. She […]
