As I mentioned in a recent post, my younger son and family moved into their new house a few weeks ago, leaving me once again on my own with the doggies and that very noisy but charming parrot, Pistache.

I come into Blogit nearly every evening to see how all of you are doing and, I admit it, to chill. J I usually go into Kabu’s post first, especially if I haven’t chatted to her for a day or two, just to see how our Wiley is holding up.

Yesterday we laid another of my siblings to rest. J. discovered she had cancer around the same time my brother Bird was diagnosed with the disease.

It was early morning and I was putting down water for the dogs “Mamere, something is floating in Papa’s coffee. “ I didn’t have to turn around to know it was my oldest Rugrat, Nalou, who spoke. For some reason he doesn’t call me ‘Memere’, which translates to ‘Granny’ in English; his pronunciation... Sign in to see full entry.

“She’s having problems dealing – with everything. Financially. And emotionally.” He was twiddling with his cup as he talked. My daughter and I waited, listening. “Her boyfriend is on anti-depressants too and, from what she tells me, jealous and pissed off most of the time.” Both my daughter and I...
