    An explanation , and a plea .

    Folks i am trying hard to be the same aggravating fella ya know every day . Fact is my grandmother is in the natural process of ending her life . Now dont get me wrong she is 90+ lol i could easily say 100+ and be just as right . Its natural , but that does not make it easy , I am somewhat short tempered now , even while i search for friends . According to them in the know , within a week or so she will either be passed , or have rallyed to the point that it is not immediate . Till then bear with me if you can , I will try and only poke contriversal posts to where they will be taken " right " with the understanding that its me wanting to " fight " a bit and no harm ment . If she rallys and lives its all good , if she doesnt then ill post a brief note on what she was to me and others . Hell folks , i wont appoligise , but i will explain so take it or leave it .. but i dont honestly mean to be bad right now. ( ill clue yall inn when i am back in form and being intentionaly bad lol ) .
    Anyway for a fiew weeks if my posts are pissy , or seem unthinking , please excuse me as you can , i most likely just am not thinking clearly , i promise to try and think , but some stuff may slip by .
    Make sure you get full value out of today , Do something worthwhile, because what you do today will cost you one day off the rest of your life .
    We only begin to understand folks after we stop and think .

    Go ahead RR. Know how you feel. I'm sorta there myself lately.

    Will pray that her passing is peaceful whether it's now or in another 50 years. We all face it one day and it's never easy.

    I do understand. I too have been having some of those days. Maybe we can all help each other through the rough spots.

    God bless. I think at least most of us here have been in a position to lose a loved one.

    Hey Colorado RR. If you need a friend or just a cup of coffee, I'm also in Colorado I've got wide shoulder and will listen and not judge.

    I understand RR

    My prayers are with you and your Grandmother
    A real man loves his wife, and places his family as the most important thing in life. Nothing has brought me more peace and content in life than simply being a good husband and father.

    I know this doesnt help much, but most people can only hope to make it into their 90's. I am sure she has had a full life so far.
    Mean while, feel free in joining me in making pissy or salty posts.

    Hey RnR: Look - everybody has a bad day or two, a week or two, a month or two - I've even had a bad year or two (another story). So you're testy, short, outspoken, and aggravating. That's totally OK, because you're experiencing something very difficult for anyone to deal with. Come to CC and vent or blow off steam. That's OK by me. If somebody has a problem with it....well...you know the saying.

    Good luck, stay as positive as possible, and my thoughts are with you and the families!

    Redneck, go ahead and cuss at me whenever you need to let steam off buddy. I am married, I know how to bear it.

    Just Like Miggy...

    36 years of marriage...I can take anything!

    But I've never known you to get 'nasty'...

    My mom died 2 years ago...in our home. We had taken full care of her for the past few years...Alzheimers.

    I know exactly where you're at...just make her end (we will all have one) comfortable and loving...

    You and your grandmother are in our thoughts and prayers.

    To my knowledge, I have only met one other person on this forum. But the atmosphere here has caused me to visit other forums very infrequently.

    This is like a big family. Family accepts you. . .warts and all.

    By the way, I haven't noticed any posts from you that I would call disrespectful.

    Hell, if the forum can put up with me, it can put up with anyone.

    Cuss away. I some ways, it can be healing.

    Good luck.
