Retiring Guy Goes on a Semi-Hiatus

The boys and I leave tomorrow morning for Warren, Pennsylvania to visit family. My mom, who will be 90 in October, has recently experienced a couple of setbacks in her health -- anemia and glaucoma. Last week she was hospitalized for the first time since 1957, when my brother Dale was born.

"I feel like I become an old lady overnight," she said to me in a phone conversation earlier this week.

My brothers and I, along with Andy and Eddie's help, plan to reorganize and remodel the first floor of the house (the last photo in this series) to accommodate Mom's changing needs.

The following photos were taken in October 2008.
