On a lighter note, why did you choose your screen name?

I'll start.... I am *Freqflyer* as in frequent flyer. I've had this screen name for many years and carried it over to this website when I first found it.

Years ago I was flying back and forth from Washington D.C. to Texas. Whenever I would tell someone new that I did a lot of flying, they would assume I was a *stewardess*.... hmmm, why not the *pilot*?.... so much for old fashioned stereotypes..... [sigh]. No, I didn't work for the airlines.

Since my parents became older, guess you could say I was grounded :(

I get tired of negative thinking and thought I wanted a positive screen name.

clifford25 is my dad and I use his name because it was though his illness and death that I learned a lot about life. He is and always will be my inspiration and my hero. I miss him everyday of my life but as sad as that is it was in losing him that I learned so much about life. Even though he is gone he still teaches me things and inspires me to be a better person every day. I was very fortunate that I got to take care of him those last few months of his life. To be able to be there every day as he took his final journey is something I will treasure for the rest of my life. It was so sad to lose him but his journey was just as he wanted it to be.

Igloo572 was a broken-arrow that was a really big big deal in my home. Dad was USAF technical branch civilian with security clearance. In Nov 1963, there was a nuclear explosion (uranium spread) at one of the igloo's (#572) in the special weapons demilitarization project. Super scary stuff as this is the 1960's and the height of the cold-war. Explosion blew out windows for miles around a few people died in the igloo. Dad was part of the site team to record post event and the even bigger deal was because of the "accident" he was on that team for months rather than being on the team that was going to record JFK's visit which was a few days later and the day before he was assassinated. igloo572 became a moniker for things that just go awry. We also had cats named Beryllium & Polonium.

crazytobehere,
im 13 months post dementia caregiving for my mom and looking back -- i dont see how my head didnt explode . crazy mom , jealous sibs , smart mouthed hospice nurses , conclusion jumping aps , a bed bug infestation just to make things more interesting , fear for my own future , etc .
in hindsight , just do a job you can feel good about when its over . my own life is falling back in place in small bits . just tallying the damage at this point . moving forward with life and home projects may take another year ..
