About the covey letter……….

Somehow you have stumbled upon the relatively new blog “thecoveyletter” where I enjoy posting my ramblings about life at sea, caring for older parents and whatever else rambles into my psyche.

I’m currently a landlocked sailor who has recently moved ashore to try my hand at providing assistance and care to my two aging parents.   My 89 yr old father is in the throes of dementia and my 90 yr old mother has been struggling to keep up with both of their needs on her own.  Not an easy decision this, but I am committed to doing what I can, while I can and while my dad still knows who the heck I am…..which is more than I can say about myself these days!

One of the many pluses in this new adventure of mine is the time I now have to write.  Stick around if you like…you never know what will turn up here in thecoveyletter.  Please comment on anything that strikes a note with you.  I welcome not only your comments but your thoughts and encouragement…and feel free to spread the word.  If you know a good publisher I’d like to hear about that for sure.  Oh yeah….if you really, really like what I have to say here you can set up to get an email each time a new post is presented.

NOTE  …  In “Perils of Being Tew” you will find articles in a random order…NOT in the order intended.  Each segment is numbered so it’s best to read them in that order.

    Bob, great job!! I so look forward to your ramblings. Also, I’ve found writing about issues to be a great catharsis….getting it all out, so to speak. Keep ’em coming. Love it!

      Dale, this is Gloria Campbell Gallagher ’65. I’m keeping an address bank of Ro-Hawks and have a blog. I don’t have you on my list. Can you send your address to me. gutsking@aol.com. The blog is Randolph Ro-Hawks ….thanks (Bob, thanks for letting me post this, glo)

    • Hi Dale and thanks for commenting. Sorry for the loss of your father. This dementia thing is very sad to watch as you know. It helps to hear from others who are going through or have gone through it with loved ones. Let me know how things unfold with your mom….and good luck.
