Xmas With Gram & Gramp

Overnight Visit For Xmas Holiday:
Not to many years ago when we visited any of our children and spent some time there sleeping overnight this is what we would usually bring with us.
Clean Underwear change for each day
Bacon & Eggs
Chinese Food
Couple Of Cases Of Beer
Couple Of Gallons Of Wine
My Favorite Pillow

Today I am 83 years old, my wife is 80, we are going to spend a few days this Christmas with my daughters family, these are the things we will bring with us now.
Two Wheelchairs
My Crutches
My Wife’s Cane
A Porta Potty For My Wife (bedside)
A Urine Bottle For Me (bedside)
A Raised Toilet Seat With Handles
A Walker To Grab When Rising From Toilet Seat
Two Little Buckets To Put Our Teeth In At Night
Ear Plugs (so we can’t hear each other snore)
Blood Pressure Pills (his & hers)
Cranberry Pills (for bladder)
Prune Juice (induce bowel movement)
Aspirin (in case of chest pains)
Prilosec Pills (heartburn & esophagus)
Adult Diapers (his & hers)
There's a long, long trail a-winding
Into the land of my dreams
Where the nightingales are singing
And a white moon beams:
There's a long, long night of waiting
Until my dreams all come true;
Till the day when I'll be going down
That long, long trail with you.

I just stumbled upon both of your blogs and so enjoyed them. Lots here - so I'm going to have to come back to read more. And show them to my Dad too who grew up on Brookline Street - he's about five years younger than you I think. You have a wonderful writing style and it's really a pleasure to read about Cambridge in the "good old days" - and they were good weren't they?!

Love the stories! I live on Brookline St and my family grew up in the Village so these stories bring it home.
