Home for the Holidays

It's "flyer" time at Trader Joe's again, where we distribute a leaflet with written paragraphs about our featured goods. The sign crew designs a "flyer indicator" which is placed all over the store where the flyer items are. We put the number of the page where it is written, in the area in the lower right corner. My theme for this indicator is taken from the porch woodwork of an historic house in the center of Falls Church.

I went home for a holiday (Halloween) but my father's condition deteriorated after I left. He is in the hospital now, with what the doctors say is pneumonia. I called him at the hospital and he wasn't doing well mentally. He needs home care when they release him, but he won't pay for it. I am wondering whether I will have to make a quick return to Boston should there be more serious developments.

Is it time to get your mother to ask to power of attorney?

Or is it time to let him Live Free Or Die?

My thoughts are with you.

I went through a similar situation with my father, it wasn't easy or fun, but we get through it.
