Reverse shoplifting sounds like great fun, Russell.

My Dad has Alzheimers Disease...I saw him read the same page of a book continually...I wondered if he was happy...a latter day Sisyphus Syndrome?
russell higgs: Hello Ray. How lovely to hear from you after such a long time.

My elderly aunt is currently bedridden and sometimes she seems to have nightmarish hallucinations, sadly. When I visit I sometimes try to tip the balance of her attention by placing eye catching beautiful things on the wall at the end of her bed. I've got her a huge 3D Tiger head portrait. The wartime love of her life used to call her Tiger smile

x Russell
