Eventually, though, we got Mom calmed down and installed at Amy's, and it's a pretty good deal. Amy and her family (husband John and of course the kids, Deniece and Denephew) fixed up the finished basement into a suite complete with bed, couch, and a TV with a screen the size of a billboard. It's a pretty sweet suite. You've heard of Man Caves? This is a Mom Cave. Or, as my brother-in-law calls it, the Old Bat Cave.
So what's the plan from here? Well, after several weeks of close personal contact, Amy is content to let Aunt Sharon and Aunt Margaret handle her ... I mean, to let Aunt Sharon and Aunt Margaret be the hostesses for a while.
After which I'm sure they will be more than glad to lateral to someone else, by which time Amy's blood pressure will have gone back down.
Meanwhile, my brother P.D. is looking for a house in LaGrange for Mom, and I'm ... well, I'm out of the picture for a while recuperating from some medical procedures of my own. Boy, did I time that one right.
And Mom? Like I said, she has disappeared, going deeply into basketball land. She'll be back when it's over, and good thing. The Old Bat Cave just isn't the same without its resident Bat.
