I just received a phone call from my brother, stating that the police picked up my mother last night on a neightbor's porch. His wife, who is power of attorney, has been making the necessary arrangements to have mom institutionalized. We have kept her in her home of 48 years for as long as possible. Still it makes me sad. BUT that is not the main reason for this post. When Greg called he said, "Did anybody GET UP with you"? What is this s**t? It's not like he's 16 years old, trying to impress his friends. He's an educated, smart man. But sure doesn't sound like it. NO, no one GOT UP with me, nor did I receive a call at that point. Really, now, " 'GET UP' with you"?! Am I the only one who thinks this strange?
