It is Tuesday, which is meant to be my day of adding some humour into our lives… other than the Tom and Jerry cartoon via the link below, my tank is a bit low. I know there are lots of family stories lurking in the recesses of my mind,many of them very funny, and all of them probably embarrassing to someone in our immediate family, but I can’t recall enough of a whole story to add it here. I’ve been taking notes, and writing thoughts as they appear, but have not put together a whole story yet.
As part of our family history, I’d really like to write some of those stories up, as I know when I was younger I really enjoyed hearing the stories of my youth, many of which I could not really remember, but my parents could tell me about. Grandchildren love stories about their parents and grandparents too, and they are an important part of our personal history and identity.
It is a strange phenomenon not being able to recall one’s own life, a bit weird, even though many days I can remember all sorts of things, although often only parts of things. Having to rely on reading my own blog, to recall what I’ve been thinking, writing or doing is vaguely annoying, but, I suppose, better than not having anything to rely on at all, even though I often feel as if I’ve plagiarised myself. The symptoms of dementia are definitely getting in the way of things like remembering.
Anyway, if you enjoy old fashioned cartoons like Tom & Jerry, who I’m relying on today to provide us all some humour, follow this link: http://www.supercartoons.net/cartoon/297/tom-jerry-puss-gets-the-boot.html
