"Right, Dave, how is Dave doing?"

"He's fine mom."

"When are you guys coming to Hawaii to see us?"

"Mom, we were there in November."

"Yes, that's right, I remember."

Old age is such a cruel master.

Our mother started walking 3 miles a day when she turned 85. Now she's 95 and we have no idea where she is.

Your sketch is very good. I do hope you know where your mother is. My mother is in a care home at 91 and she has no clue where she is or who I am. It's very sad.

Audelia: Thanks for your kindness. Your English is perfect!

Terry: So sorry to hear. Old age is cruel. So important to make the most of your life while you can and focus on what's most important.
