    ...to all out there in chess land. I picked up my Dad today from the Nursing home and we had Thanksgiving with my wife, brother, daughters, 5 grandchildren, etc. Had a great time.
    I was frustrated picking up my father, lots of work. He is like dead weight. Had to drive out there, its snowing, blowing and cold (20'😉. After a struggle, got him in the car, packed the wheelchair and headed home. It was worse taking him back. But then I remembered what he went through when I was a child. How he worked two jobs to make ends meet. My brother and I were always getting into trouble. He got my brother and I through school, and was always there over the years to help out. After I bought my first house he stacked my firewood , painted our house, helped us financially, etc. He bailed me out when I wrecked my car. I had to get another, and he paid off my old car, never saying a word about it.
    I suddenly felt ashamed about my inner complaining. After reflecting on the past, it didn't seem as cold. I took him back gave him a hug and thanked him. It's all I can do now, he has Dimentia and doesn't remember much.
    I guess I am saying to you with parents, honor them, love them, you will miss them when they are gone. And be ye Thankful!🙂
