Good to hear of an improvement, Mr Sims.

Would that I could report good news of my own; I’ve been having to visit my mum in the dementia ward recently...some days it’s okay, some days it’s soul-crushing.  She’s in good hands though and I don’t know where the staff get their fortitude from.  I couldn’t do their job.  :-\
I couldn't do it either.
As long as she's being well looked after, that's the main thing :)

Well, the MiL came out of Hospital today, but last night at twenty to eleven the phone rang; it was  the neighbour of Mrs S's 90 year old auntie to say she'd had a fall.
Mrs S went over to find a scene like the Texas Chainsaw Massacre, blood everywhere, the neighbour's were on the phone for an ambulance and being told it would be four hours before one could come. Mrs S persuaded them otherwise. But after being at the Hospital 'til four on Sunday morning, she was there 'til half five this morning.
One comes out, one goes in.

Hope your Aunt is sorted and comfortable now Nick
No good deed goes unpunished!

No amount of anxiety can change the future. No amount of regret can change the past.

Thanks Andrew. She's back home now. These old folk are a trial.

Lost my old schoolmate today. Went to all Rush gigs with him since Signals, before he died he gave me a NP drumming hat he used to cover his hair loss and a “feck Brexit” T shirt. Through the death of his sister and a Bob Harris connection we got to meet Alex and Geddy on the last tour. Afterimage tonight...
Everybody's got to evalate from the norm.

Sorry, Nick, awful news.

Music is a great catalyst for forming memories, friendships and for healing too, though, eh?
Anger is a gift.

My condolences for your loss. Hopefully you can retain all those wonderful memories from your shared appreciation of our favourite band. I'm sure they will help you through this time of grieving.
