Chickens Lay Eggs in Bright Light

There are 12+ inches of snow in the front yard with 2-4 more coming! Erie’s Mayor declared an emergency for the city. Can you tell I have very fond memories of deep snow and powerful snow storms from childhood?

Last night I continued to feel sleep deprived which didn’t help the brain synapses. My step-father’s sister lived on a farm. I thought my Aunt Lu told me that the chickens would lay eggs better with more light since it’s so dark in the winter, so I turned on all the lights in the house. Pam had stepped out for a few minutes. Pam returned shortly and reminded me that Aunt Lu had died when I was in high school. I had some trouble finding where the kitchen was too. Today is better after some good sleep! Thank the Lord………one day at a time.

Amy and Gerald Throop were gracious enough to send me a complementary copy of their book, “Living with Lewy’s.” I’ll be posting a review of it on the blog. I still need to post the reviews for two other books. Just need to get around to it.

  1. Dear David,
    I warmly sympathize with your situation. It’s very hard when you miss a whole day in your life. I remember Howard saying that years ago, “It’s just a blank.”
    We who are well are so blessed. That is one reason I want to give back. My goal is for everyone to Adopt A Caregiver, as you know and support. It’s both hard on the patient and the family, especially the caregiver.
    Hopefully, one day, they will find answers. I hope so with all my heart.
    Keep the faith.
    Keep love and kisses in your life. Helene
