Mom’s Mind Is Out to Sea

Backstory: My Dad was a Navy Captain and was always out to sea, so Mom got used to writing telegrams.  All her e-mails are one paragraph and include ALL the news fit to print, no matter how diverse the subject.  Her stream-of-consciousness updates always delight me.

Thanks for the stroke material. I was worried too which is why we went straight to emergency yesterday. Dad’s b/p and other responses were good. Did you access Jim’s attachment with all the photos? That place sure does photograph well. The inside, while incredibly charming, needs lots of TLC (e.g. paint, floor refinishing, new appliances). But it really is like a mini-estate. ANd the price is a bargain. I think they paid more plus the new roof but now they have three houses and prefer the latest one. Did you see it? Meanwhile I am laid low with IBS. I started to cook a complicated Chinese meal and then said to hell with it, we’ll have frozen pizza.

Love, Mom
