I'll be traveling to TN tomorrow to see my friend who doesn't have much time left.  By going I hope to give her daughter some respite.  It's going to be a sad trip but I believe it's important.  I don't know why she has held on this long.  This pending death has been a long, painful journey for her.  She who wanted to outlive her husband because he needed looking after.  Because he is now in a home she no longer has to worry about him, just herself.  Her daughter is there to care for her and her sister lives just down the hill. I don't know if I could hang in there as long as she has or undergone all the treatments she did.  No matter....I will just be there to let her know I love her as my sister.

Maybe not

I'm back from two road trips with my daughter.  The first was to Illinois.  We went because the band my daughter is in was performing.  We set up a vending space hoping to at least make the entry and vending fees.  The weather did not cooperate.  It was either hotter than hell or raining cats and dogs.  The heat affected me partly because of medication I take.  I got sick.  Nothing like wondering which way to turn in a porta-potty.  I quit taking the meds and recovered.  The band performed beautifully.  We did not make our fees and travelling expenses.  So much for that trip.
The second was to Ohio.  Her band did not perform there.  The temps were in the mid to upper 90's and we had one day of rain.  It was HOT.  Putting up and taking down 10x20 canopies in the heat takes a toll.  I did not take my meds and survived without getting sick.  This time we did make our expenses plus some extra.  I don't know that I want to do it again.  As I told my daughter...I'm getting too old for this s--t.
