  1. I agree with Ruth. Your typing is no worse than mine. God bless the person that invented spell check!

    I hope your back feels better.

  2. OK, you two!! Sounds like you both need to take typing lessons!! ROTFL!!

    I’ve always had some letter reversals and just plain hitting the wrong keys, just like everyone else, I suppose. But this is nowhere near what my normal typing would look like. I’m sorry if this post came across as whining, but I spend so much time on the computer, and I depend on it as an outlet, that this is a big deal for me.

  3. Hi, I wanted to drop by and say thank you so much for supporting myself and Andrew via your post on Ruths blog. We are extremely grateful appreciate you taking the time to help in the fundraising!

    Bless you and your family!

    {{{HUGS}} and love,

    Natalya (talj) xx

  4. DB, in order to understand an illness, sometimes I have to feel and see how it impacts the people who have it.And you have given me that gift for the disease of Parkinson’s.

    But you know what? Even with the errors, your voice still comes through. The one that makes no spelling mistakes, the one that is always upfront and honest.

    Thank you.

  5. Talj, I’m more than happy to help RUTH raise money for such a worthy cause! Considering how many comments she has on that post, I’m pleasantly surprised that you have the time to come to my blog and put up a comment yourself!!

  6. I really appreciate your empathy, Marion. I’m at a stage right now where I’m grieving over the slow loss of this skill, and it’s painful to write about it.

  7. I could understand it and so will many others; in fact I can see no difference in your typing than mine before I have used spellcheck. My biggest problem is I transpose letters….said becomes siad. Even when I’m leaving a comment I have to check it 2 or 3 times before I publish it. You are a remarkable woman and bad spelling doesn’t make you any less remarkable! I really hope your back is going to be ok!
    A bit naughty to ask as you have already done so much to help in the Art quest but I’m trying to get comments on my latest post on THERE ARE A MILLION STORIES to help raise money for a cancer charity…..every comment I get is worth 50p……it would be great if you could pop over and swell the numbers.

  8. If enough sites will display the oversize button, you just might get lucky! Hope so, anyway.

    It’s 2:00AM, I slept for awhile, then got up wide awake. Grrrrrr

    Daddy’s sound asleep.

  9. Thanks so much for the “button”. Mick is about to have his breakfast but will get it set up later. You are a star!
    Hope your Dad slept well then hopefully you had some rest.

  10. I hope you enjoy your outing today and the weather is kind to you.

    I can click the button, so I’m not sure what the trouble is, unless I goofed trying to write out the code. I wish I knew how to properly display the code, without it being executed!!

    Feeling good about finding Greg for you!!

  11. Only a quick response to your comment re Greg as Mick & I have transport booked for a little (very rare) outing… are wonderful with all that you are doing…thank you so much. i haven’t managed to make the button show up yet; even on your blog & blogvillage I only see words …no clickable button but shall persevere when our outing is over.
    Much love

  12. I don’t know if you ever feel spread a little thin between looking out for yourself and your father Did you hear me burst into laughter when I read that???

    I hope you stop by often, Lori, and I’ve already commented on the post you suggested. I look forward to really reading your blog, and I’ll add the link in my side bar just as soon as I can.

    As for my “unedited glory” as you call it, my friend Joe, who has Alzheimer’s, gives me the courage to be open about what this part of Parkinson’s is like for me. I’m not ready to leave my mistakes alone just yet, but he has shown me that it does help people understand if you don’t “pretty it up.”

  13. Rosemary,

    Thank you for posting this blog. It was truly eye-opening and moving. I write for Gilbert Guide (the foremost resource for everything senior care), and I write and read a lot about care giving and illnesses like Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s. Seeing as I am not a caregiver, a senior or someone afflicted by either of the aforementioned illnesses, I read as much as I can to try to understand what it’s like living in those scenarios. Your blog, in its unedited glory, put me smack dab in the middle of that reality. It’s that type of honesty that truly educates people. Thank you so much for sharing.

    We recently added an eldercare consultant to our blogging team, and she just posted a blog called “Caregiver Burnout.” I don’t know if you ever feel spread a little thin between looking out for yourself and your father, but you may find this blog helpful if that feeling arises. You can read the post here:

    I look forward to visiting your blog again,
