Peter Graves (81) made a short appearance on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno last week.

His demeanor these days reminds me (eerily) of Ronald Reagan (when he was alive).

todAAy i AAm grAAteful & thAAnkful

for some good, quality time with Mom- at her bedside in the nursing home -- I was able to get her in her wheelchair and take her to the den/lounge in the home where they have an internet computer for anyone who cares to use it -- I showed her the picture I posted yesterday (see below) and she laughed as best she can

that tomorrow I take Mom to see her dentist and we'll use the wheelchair van for the first time, supplied by the nursing home

to have heard my friend Laura relate parts of her out of control life and how it has transcended to her sober life today

that I bicycled out to the Art Car Parade on Saturday -- good exercise and good fun

that I'll never be the mother that I once was

If you are doing your best, you will not have time to worry about failure.

Yep Peter is starting to look like Ronnie too. I am glad you had a good day with your Mom.

It sounds like your mom had a happy mother's day. I confess it took me a minute to get the picture, though. I'm on my first cuppa.

You mean I missed Laura's story. That makes Saturday even more a real poopy day. God that woman is a real miracle. And to think we got to see it happen.
Glad your MOM chuckled.
