Enjoying a few moments in the sun.

Its official, Summer here has lasted all of 96 hours (so far). Personally, I can't stand too much heat so I'm not sorry we are now having Spring-like weather in the mid-70s during the day and 50s overnight. But I did manage to grab my camera after my wife sat down in a chair by the front door with her ever-present protectors. This was one of the last days when we had near 90 degrees outside. That's probably why their tongues are hanging out.

A new lifting chair for Mom and a new headrest for Ruff.

Maybe I'm getting old but my back is taking a toll trying to lift my wife off the couch every day. Its one of those side effects from her Alzheimer's that I have to live with but not after today. I spotted a powered recliner chair that lifts the person from a sitting position to standing straight up. I knew the moment I saw it that I had to have it. And within a few hours Ruff found out it makes a very handy headrest so he can lay a bit closer to his Mom. Check out his new sleeping spot. Meanwhile, Axl has been voicing several complaints.
