Smile Cruzer Maraudering????

Hey Maury, are you still Maraudering?

I sent you a couple of PM's but no response. Are you upright?

Just checking 10-92.

Pat

I spoke with Maury about 2 months ago. He still had his marauder and last he told me he and his wife had to move to a assisted living place.

I remember when Maury made a few passes down the strip at Marauderville 1.

You gotta post more Redster. Your always doing something. Don't hear from the old North Texas Marauder guys anymore. Miss the monthly car show in Grapevine, Texas at the hamburger joint, Chuck's, right? Wonder what happened to my old membership list? I remember the Centerville cruise's and the Two Rows Sunday bunch. Maury ate those up, ha.

We are not getting any younger.

Hi Pat. We have been pretty busy since we retired. We have a hard time finding Cajun or BBQ around here.
We have 8 grandkids in Northern California and at one time or another they have all been in the MM. Not all at the same time of course. We have at least two family get-togethers with all of them every year, plus graduations, etc.
So, life is good. The MM has taken us up the coast from San Diego to the Columbia River in Oregon plus the Grand Canyon and many other places in California and Nevada. What a great car

Rod

Angry I hate computers

As I promised, I typed up a nice reply the next night. Just as I was writing the last line, my phone rang and I started to put my lap top down. My hand slipped and slid across the keyboard. Somehow a delete command was touched and pooooof went the whole thing. The next nite I finished another post-----got a call from one of my daughters---closed the laptop----with a pen lying across the keyboard---poooof again. I hope the 3rd time is the charm. D---n---just got a call from the medications nurse ----am going to send this before it gets lost Be back later---Maury:c ensor:

I hate computers {continued}

OK--here I go again. When I got home from Louisville in 2013 I noticed that Ginny was forgetting things---Ginny had the best memory in the family. She began falling and forgetting things . What we found out later was that she was developing dementia (same as Alzheimers but not fatal ) . By 2015 her dementia had reached the point she had times she did not remember that we were married and thought our children were her siblings. she began trying to run away to go back to her home in PA.The children decided that Ginny and I would be safer in an Assisted Living facilities .They found the perfect place---Dancing River Assisted Living where they they have a Memory Care facility as a part of their complex. We moved into a very nice apartment where she could stay with me until she reached a stage in dementia where was a danger to herself and others. We spent about a month there . On last July 3rd I collapsed and woke up in the hospital diagnosed with "Caregiver Burn Out" This happens when the Caregiver becomes overcome by guilt and frustration and his mind and body just give up. 5 days later I returned to Dancing River and found that Ginny had been transferred to the Memory Care High Risk facility and I had been moved to a one bedroom rehab section. My doctor had notified Dancing River that was not to be allowed near the Marauder or any motor vehicle until further notice--They put me on "happy pills" while I was recuperating . They dull your emotions so you can accept all the changes in your life. I took my last one a week ago and now I have complete control of my emotions and surprised everyone . In the middle of all this they screwed up one of my meds and a week ago I went into Congestive Heart Failure and couldn't walk 25 feet without losing my breath. quick action by my daughter ,Cindy, (who is My Cardiologist's Ultrasound Cardio-Vascular tech) kept me out of the hospital. My new meds will clear this up by late next week and I can now start the process to get my driver's license back. I have to get my Cardiologist and my Personal physician to fill out a 2 page form stating I have completed my rehab and am now healthy enough to have my license back. If this is accepted by the TXDPS they will schedule me for a new written and practical driver's test as if I were getting a brand new license. Keep your fingers crossed for me. Meantime the Marauder has sat in the parking lot about 100 feet from my room. My daughters have run up the engine and driven it a mile or so and brought it back and parked it once a week. Took a ride in it with my son-in-law driving---at 167,000 miles it still kicks a-- .Ginny has reached a stage that every time she sees me she becomes highly upset so I can't see her for at least 2 weeks. So that is where we are now. I know this is a long post but if our story gives you something to think about, I will have done some good. For now, Good Night and thanks to all you wonderful folks that are still a very important part of my life. Maury
