A Little Tart...

Living as caregivers to aging parents

"I believe that most caregivers find that they inherit a situation where they just kind of move into caregiving. it's not a conscious decision for most caregivers, and they are ultimately left with the responsibility of working while still trying to be the caregiver, the provider and the nurturer." - Sharon Law Tucker

"The best people are the good old wrinkled people with a sparkle in their eye, a wink when you walk by or a toothless smile saying you are doing just fine." - Robert Wesley Miller

"Never tease an old dog; he might have one bite left." - Robert A. Heinlein

"I've never stopped wanting to cross
the equator, or touch an elk's
horns, or sing Tosca or screw
James Dean in a field of wheat.
To hell with wisdom. They're all wrong:
I'll never be through with my life." - Rita Dove

"Even eighty-odd is sometimes vulnerable to vanity." - L. M. Montgomery

A Little Unexpected...
