    All I can say Jacky posted the group challenge at the right moment as I need the distraction from real life right now
    And give you all a little idea : my mother has been admitted to a nursing home and is dement now that is not a problem to me and it was long overdue the trick however is that her heart is giving in and again no surprise to me she is lucky to be alive as she could have died 3 years ago from the same heart problems she has now

    I hope you all understand I am realistic in this situation and the dutch court appointed me in charge over my mother this means the medical staff has to ask me for permission before they can treat her and my wife and I have decided we will only allow pain relief and a piece full ( natural) ending
    But I am not her only son and my younger brother still believes in miracles so I feel rough times coming up when her time comes but we will stand our grounds

    Prayers to you and your family Ron. My mom went thru the same thing with my grandparents. Hopefully some painting can keep your mind busy and luckily you’re surrounded by a bunch of great people on here if ya need an ear.
    Sometimes it’s nice to get a little boost of confidence when things got ya down.
    I myself just messaged a certain someone @Mr.Micron and just hearing a quick you can do it helps.

    I’m glad we’ve provide a ‘fun’ distraction for you Ron.
    I too am a realist but it doesn’t make things easier.

    My brother in law passed last night so it seems the Gargoyle is going to be a good distraction for both of us :)

    Ron - I’m pleased that we can provide a distraction and hopefully a little relief from a horrible situation.
    Jackster - I hope we can do the same for you. I’m sorry for your loss and hope we can give some support to go some way to pay back everything you do for this community. We appreciate you Mrs.

    Thanks Si, he wasn’t expected to see Xmas 2018 so it wasn’t entirely a shock but still upsetting. He made it through his and his wife’s birthday (both Feb) and his 30th wedding anniversary 2 weeks ago.

    Distractions like the challenge are good to give your emotions a break

    Thanks Ron.
    You certainly started something, even though it was unintentional.

    A guardian Gargoyle for all those lost but not forgotten :) Love it.
