Living in Two Pieces

Doesn't sleep well at night--sleeps in 2 shifts, like they apparently did in the Middle Ages.  Comes to bed at midnight, get up around 2:30 am goes out and watches TV until  5:30 or 6:00 when the paper comes, then does the crossword puzzle.  Comes back to bed and sleeps until noon.  Today he says, "I wish I could live in one piece instead of two."

Lately he has been dreaming of a little girl named Lynette he knew when he worked at Juvenile Hall in Orange County.  Abused and alone.  Fifty years ago.

Forgot how many children we have, thought it was four.  Consistently thinks he is ninety one or two, and seems surprised when I tell him he is ten years younger than that.  :)
