Funniest quote of the weekend

As we were eating dinner Friday night, I asked my cousin & his wife, "So, is Kathy just slurring more now that she's getting older, or is she half in the bag?"
My cousin: "I'd guess half in the bag. Either that or she just had a stroke because she wasn't slurring 3 hours ago."
Kind of sad, because mom really does drink too much these days, but also really damn funny.
On a less funny note, I also noticed that mom was coughing A LOT this weekend. And not just "oh, I have a cold" coughs, but the kind of coughs you only get from someone who has been smoking for over 40 years. Not that Kathy would ever admit that smoking might be the cause of the cough. Smoking isn't bad for you, just ask her. But yeah, her coughs were so much worse than they've ever been in the past. *sigh*

My sister has the same problem with what I like to call the smoker's hack. She claims it is post-nasal drip caused by allergies - nevermind that the cough is there year round.

My mother in law was a chain smoker for more than forty years. When she was diagnosed with lung cancer, she said that had nothing to do with it. It was all the fault of the atom bomb. She was a Nagasaki survivor.

Sometimes you can't tell people what they don't want to hear.

I still miss my mother in law.
