Most Times When My Uncle (Who Is In The Nursing Home)

tells me things, like...well for instance, he has a small refrigerator in his room and the nurses put a thermometer in there to make sure that the temperature stays at a certain level.  They also have to document this, so they come in and check it quite often.  So the other day he told me "they say they are coming in here to check the temperature, but I know different, they are checking to see if I have any beer in here."  I don't even argue with him...
And, "I saw this man walking up and down the hall today, they said he was an inspector from the state, but I know better, he's from the CIA."  Sigh.
I promise you my uncle does not have a dementia problem, he just gets funny ideas.
So when he told me today that the therapist told him that he had left 2 horses out side and he surmised that he had probably rode one to the Nursing Home and the other horse was probably tethered to the first horse...I just said....yeah...because this is what I saw when I drove up.



The only thing is that he didn't ride the horse to the Nursing Home, he did have a trailer and he did have two horses, the other one is behind the trailer.
Only in Mississippi....

Since this IS Mississippi I wouldn't have been at all surprised if the guy had actually ridden the horse to the home! Until fairly recently we often saw an old guy with his two mules on the road. Hey Angel did you hear that we're not the laziest state--Louisiana is! Unfortunately we're right behind them--but usually we're #1 on all the bad lists, so yay......
