For my 1,000th post in 1 1/3 years, I must contemplate how much time I have spent doing this—I could have finished the upstairs bathroom making my wife very happy, I could have read several books, I could have exercised regularly, I could have watched the stock market more carefully thereby selling stocks when I should have.

Obviously my brain has been highjacked.

But it is a good hijacking Gene. All those other things are just stuff - this is Airstreaming on the net .

Congratulations on hitting a thou. Like your age once you hit 35, it is all downhill now and it seems to suddenly pick up speed.

It seems I do far more Airstreaming here than in my motorhome. I've made some great friends here, yet have met none of you face-to-face.
I cannot tell you how much having this outlet for intellectual interaction means to me. Thank you all so much.

My wife is participating in a new Alzheimer's drug trial at the medical center in Burlington, VT, so we are pinned down for about 85 weeks with that. It's a very promising new technology, but since the study is "double blind" we have no way to know if she's getting the drug or a placebo. Her attitude is that the Alzheimer's is a death sentence anyway, so if her participation in the study doesn't help her, it may help others, including our kids and grandchildren.

Lets keep playing!

John

John,

I too am mostly trapped at home for now with a health problem but find that being able to interact with other Airstreamers is very helpful. It keeps me focused and thinking positive thoughts on getting out with the trailer when we can. Fortunately in my situation some down time is helping and my wife has been able to pick up the towing stuff without much problem, excepting for my coaching from the passenger seat.

Good luck to you and your wife on this adventure. Tell her she is in our thoughts and prayers and hopefully this will work out well for you.

Take care,
Barry

Thumbs up


John, Barry, Gene..

Go out, look into that Airstream, and give thanks for the reflection you see and all the good things in life.

Keep the Faith, and remember all the friends you've made here are with you in spirit.

Sometimes I feel the desire to go everywhere as fast as possible because I don't know how many years we have to do so. I feel for those of you limited in your travels and at home. We all have to face aging and we all face it at different speeds and in different ways. The Forum does provide some fellowship and that's very good.

John, your wife is very courageous and realistic. This must be very hard for you and I can't imagine what I would be going through in your place.

Hard to play just yet.

Gene

Gene,
My wife is an RN with plenty of experience with geriatric diseases. She is very level headed and retains that even if the short-term memory is failing. She is just 61 now and started this in her late 50's. She is very courageous; more than me. I think about what's ahead of us [me] and shudder. At some point she won't know what's going on, but I'll see it all.
Thank you and everyone here for your support and toleration of me in all these games. It helps keep me centered.

John

Is it just me or is it really, really slow around the forums lately? Guess everybody has the winter time blues.
