I'm glad you're able to keep close tabs on your father and have looked at the issue from all side. Like Carol mentioned, my grandmother who had Alzheimer's had very little sense of smell or taste and I noticed that her cooking changed as the disease progressed.
The fact that the temptation is moving out of reach sounds like a good thing. Hopefully he will find a more healthful use for his debit care now.
I am very glad that you chose to continue here. I too admire your spirit and determination as Carol does! I'm also happy to hear that you are choosing to pursue the things you feel make the most of your time.
How is your husband? Are the two of you finding time to enjoy things together?
"Catfish swimming down the road?" Wow! Do they even know the traffic laws?
I am sorry the dinner was cancelled, but I am glad you were able to get out on an alternate night. Almost a foot of rainfall is a huge amount for anyone!
Our dogs know to stand and wait by the back door on a towel while we dry them down/clean them up a bit with another towel. They're big dogs, so they really can't stay in all day and that means a lot of towel washing.
Very few leaves have fallen yet. We had an unusually long, dry summer, so I think the trees are a bit confused about what's going on this year.
Carol, I sure hope you were able to go out to dinner. How is the flooding now?
Dave, that sounds like those are some great projects! You'll have to show us "before" and "after" pictures when it's all done. Glad to hear your dad got the stitches out. How are you doing?
We got 75% of our gutters cleaned out before the rains started. Not sure if the rest will get done or not, but at least it's the part that didn't get done is the furthest away from the trees, so hopefully not too blocked up.

Our daughter will turn 24 on October 18th, so I definitely have a fondness for October birthdays. I adore Halloween and was a bit disappointed when we moved to a rural place to realize there will never be any trick-o-treaters again. I used to like to decorate our house and dress up.
Definitely Fall here. Leaves are turning and starting to shed, the rain is back, and it's getting dark earlier and earlier.
My nephew had club feet, but has been fortunate he only needed casts and a couple of surgeries. He's very active in baseball and swimming, and I hope he is able to continue that way. He's about half your son's age, so procedures may have improved, too.
