Guwande is a very good writer.

He was born and raised in Ohio, just like our friend OCD.  Grin

Yes, he mentions that, because one of the aging people he writes about is his father.

I'm home after another bone-weary day, taking care of my mom. It seems ironic since she's in a major care facility, but she requires more care than ever. At least 6 or 7 hours a day. And then, my brother showed up and needed to be chauferred here and there for 3 days, and now my sister showed up, with the same chauferring needs.

Excuse them. If they're in Denver now, they need to be taking turns with your mother. She's their mother, too. And depending on their other needs while they're there, they should be renting cars, or at least one car they can share.

My sis's husband is driving in today with their car so that will resolve itself. My bro flew back home yesterday. The strangest thing happened: he tried to rent a car but there were no cars available in the whole city! He did uber back and forth to Mom's once but otherwise I chauffered him.

My thoughts too. We theorize that maybe a lot of people rented cars to go up north for the eclipse.

My sister's husband arrived and he drove her over to Mom's rehab center about 5 pm, returning to the motel. Mom was tired and wanted to go to bed around 6 pm but sis's husband wouldn't pick her up until 8 pm, so guess who gets to chauffeur sister around again. Sigh. At least, they're leaving early tomorrow, so hopefully that will be the last of the sibling problems for a while.

Well, at least I've learned how to spell chauffeur.
