Also, they have apparently taken my parent's next door neighbor to live at a nursing home. She was in her early 70s and was always a bit of a crackpot and a hoarder, but apparently she had totally gone off the deep end recently. She had been spending eight hours a day at the local pizza place complaining to anyone within earshot that none of her kids wanted to visit (like I said, her house is packed with boxes and junk). Her husband died probably 20 years ago. I don't know what's going to happen to the house, because it's such a mess.
In lighter news, my dad was surprised to hear that Paul McCartney was still touring at his age (obviously, dad doesn't follow music closely). I found a few clips from recent concerts on YouTube to show him.
And mom wasn't in nagging mode like she was last weekend. We cooked a bunch of chicken, and she gave me some to take home.
