Nothing wrong with my boats.. but plenty wrong with my Elderly Parents. I had hoped they would last as long as their parents, but it seems not to be. With both being in their mid-70s, they have multiple things wrong with them. As my Mother's primary caretaker, I am almost afraid to go to work. Thankfully my Father has my sister, but nobody over in that house has a car, so any appointments fall on me to take them.

I can still get a bit of kayaking in.. but sailing takes too much time to set up, sail, and downrig for me to be able to do it without worry.

well, all is slightly looking up. My father has open heart surgery on the 16th to replace a valve (he has a heart defect that keeps them from doing the quick and easy catheter way. And my Mother sees her surgeon next week to see about the aneurism. So while I will not get any sailing in while they are recovering, I will be able to do less worrying.
