    I have only just seen this on this thread. Not one I follow. I understand you as my Dad made the same journey 18 months ago. He was lucky and only had 4 months in a home. I was happy for him to go. I had lost the man called my farther a long time ago. All the things I know he did not want to happen to him, happened. This made me sick and sad. My Mum has moved on and we can remember him as he was before Dementia. It kills all around the person with it. We are now free to think of the good times we all had. Hope you and yours do too.
    I send my love to you all.

    Thanks for your thoughts, This has been a long haul, at times, you wonder how you coped! I am focused now on the fact that this is as bad as it gets, and the route back to happy-land is ahead

    I saw a few pages back a bottle of chocolate porter. While spending a delightful time with the crew from Ohio running WoG games at the USAF Museum for the 100th anniversary of WWI, we went for dinner and I had a wonderful chocolate Guinness beer milkshake. It is now one of my favorites.

    Rory, Sue's Dad has dementia. It's truly sad to see the increased loss each time we visit.

    I am very glad you're back, Rob.

    I will drink to my Admiral Croft who incidentally is a fan of port since the 2015 solo campaign.

    Yes, but even then, some sailors are bound to wine, being unable to beer the conditions.

    Richard, there's no sense we getting into a row over this, for I would hate to be on the receiving end your grapeshot. So I say we reserve our port puns, refrain from expressing any negative sediment, keeping our comments bottled up, and fortify our friendship which is worth more than a precious ruby.

    You are of course excused for medical reasons and may very well do as you please. Any time you do something you can always call out "Doctors orders!" and it will be in perfect order.

    Not sure Richard, but reuse is O.K. if you are making a story up like that to help with the flow. I also think now we are getting short of new tipples that other drinks with a seafaring nature could be included, as Port has already become acceptable. Rum thing that in my opinion.
    I just made that up too.

    I post Atlantic ale yesterday so I thought that it is only fair to post Pacific ale today. There appears to be competition for the title. Name:  pacific_1amg0v6-1amg0vd.jpg

    It is the largest ocean so I expect sailors become very thirsty there, hence the great variety.
