Old people. Politics.

It’s not too often that the 2 intersect.

Maybe when Grandma Sue goes off on a rant about the state of the world at Thanksgiving dinner. Or when Uncle Bob shows up at Red Lobster wearing his “Where’s My Senior Discount?” shirt.

Are you a support group kind of person? Are you a big believer in talk therapy?

Why do I ask?

I love Terry Bradshaw. What football fan doesn’t! Besides being an NFL legend, Bradshaw is a larger than life presence. Just watch him on Fox NFL Sunday. Fun, flamboyant…kinda crazy!

The useless emotions: guilt and worry.

A phrase burned in my brain for more than 40 years, ever since I read Your Erroneous Zones, by the late, great Dr. Wayne Dyer, way before he was shot into the stratosphere of fame and fortune – and appearances on PBS.

Advocate.

One who pleads the cause of another.

One who defends or maintains a cause or proposal.

One who supports or promotes the interests of a cause or group.

Thank you, merriam-webster.com.

Part of caregiving an elderly loved one is being their advocate. I don’t do much...
