things that go bump in the day 3

my own WWW – Wanderings With Wayne

and so the blog begins for real ….. (feb 25th 2016)

Had a great day today. Got all the words for starting this thing off done and somewhere found the courage to post it.

The comments I got in the recently diagnosed forum as replies to my 4 hour post were so so good and made me feel better about almost everything. I say almost because it left me a bit concerned that a friend on Talking Point, all the way in northeast Michigan said she got my 4 hours. I know time flies but, all the way to America in 4 hours, that’s a bit worrying. It means I could get lost almost anywhere in the world?????


The Forum Post:-
the odd 4 hours –  has anyone seen an odd 4 hours lying around anywhere. I had a lovely morning out with the walking group I attend. nice stroll in the sun but a little chilly. nice time with nice people. then had a cuppa and sandwich for lunch in a local café and then went shopping. I know it was 1.30 at some time because a young lad asked me the time then. however, I got home at just gone 6 without the slightest idea where I have been or what I may have been doing expect for still carrying shopping. so, where are my 4 hours???? 

And here are some of the replies;-

  Hi Wayne

I’ve just read all your blogs and wanted to congratulate you on a job well done. Your character and spirit shine through them and i look forward to reading more.

My OH was diagnosed with Alzheimers nearly 2 years ago when he was 67 and I find your comments immensely helpful in trying to understand what is happening with him. He’s doing incredibly well but sometimes odd things can happen. We find the best way to deal with these odd things is to have a laugh so I am not at all upset by your approach – long may it continue!

I hope you don’t lose too many more hours else we’ll have to send out a search party. 

 Hi Wayne

The hours disappear all too easily.

I seem to have a more of a problem with working out who changed the route I know so well. I end up places and don’t know how I got there. When DVLA cancelled my license I got a free bus pass from the council. Its great but it does send me on journeys and change where we are going along the way.

I have a medicare medal round my neck which tells people who I am, and what my health issues are. It also has my wifes phone number on it. On the home screen of my phone there are buttons labelled with my wifes name; Sue (wife) and those for my grown up children; David (Son) and Sarah (Daughter).

They really do help me get home.

Could a medallion help you when 4 hours go missing?

Lol @ Wayne. Brilliant

Thank you for that good post. What makes it good is that it helps to see that others have similar challenges and we truly are not alone.
The four hours have gone. But you are still here. You win. ? 

  Oh Wayne, I’ve looked everywhere, I’m really sorry but I don’t have your odd four hours or I would give them back to you packaged in gift wrap with a big heart bow.

I am so glad you had a lovely morning but please be careful.

You have a real way with words and expressing your feelings and the way things are happening to you. Please write it down, I think it will help a lot of people.

 I have your 4 hours, Wayne! Can I keep them to make up for the four l lost? I could sure use the time! ?
