    We haven't gotten to that point yet, but mom will need to have the battery in her pacemaker replaced in the nearish future. My sister and I are of conflicted minds on that. Mom has little quality...

    Me either! I wrote this list based on all the stuff I /wished/ we could have done for my folks. But Dad was proud and Mom is stubborn, as well as possessing a pathologic need to be perfect at all...

    I can't answer your larger question, which sounds like "how much should I help my parents". Only you can answer that. But if you are looking for practical help, that I can offer. Help your...

    Ugh Tybee. That is so awful that your brother is like that. Funny (not) how he rewrites the rules to suit himself. I've never heard this "proper" rule, sounds like something he made up.

    I don't have a special one for camping. The one I use at home is an oxo brand. I have arthritis in my hands and find the oxo products to be easy to use and manipulate.
