    My wife Mollie who is almost four years into alzheimers and has been on aricept from her first diagnosis.She has got quite demanding and puts me under a lot of pressure every day. I have always tried to get her to do the things we have done for many years we have been married for 53 wonderfull years and it hurts me to see and put up with her condition.But yesterday we went as usual for our weekly outing for a pub meal its been the same pub for years and of course the locals know Mollie and her condition. Now yesterday after we had had our meal Mollie took out her false teeth and put them in her glass of bitter lemon and stired them up.She then fished them out put them back in her mouth and drank the bitter lemon.You ought to have seen the locals faces they wouldnt laugh out loud they respect her too much but they were bursting.I thought I would share this happy moment with you all

    Hi gerrie ley

    Thank you so much for the giggle. Appreciate your sense of humour!

    Long may your pub meals continue, I'm sure the locals appreciate you too.

    Love

    Hi Gerrie ley,

    what a wonderful picture that conjured up, thanks, .:D

    My mum goes into a care home this week , and to try and put a positive slant on whats been a difficult three years, weve been remembering all those sorts of little moments that either make you smile or have a great belly laugh.
    Hopefully that will be one of your fond moments,
    Lots of love
    Ally xx

    Another funny story

    When my Dad was in hospital he had a fall.

    A nurse and I got Dad into bed and the nurse wanted him to open his eyes to check he was OK. Full of concern I said to Dad "What do I look like?" He opened his eyes and said "Ugly." All three of us laughed.

    Got to laugh

    :D
    My husband has partial dentures which include his 4 upper front teeth. Since he went into the NH he got into the habit of taking them out and losing them. Now although they sit in a dish in his bathroom I've given it up and leave him without, he seems to eat OK.
    The thing is if he smiles or I kiss him he looks just like Christopher Lee in Dracula.

    Hi gerrie lee
    thanks for bringing back memories of taking mum out for our regular pub meals!!! It really brought a smile to my face!!
    Mum didn't actually go that far with her teeth but she often used to take them out in the pub to clean them........I was fine with that but when my kids came along they were horrified!!!
    The mystery of mums lost teeth has died with her I'm afraid!!!
    We never did find them after she "put them somewhere safe":)
    Love Wendy xx
