I used to call home about twice a week before Pop passed away.

A few months later, I started calling Mom daily. I even have an alarm on my cell phone that rings at 8:30 PM to remind me.

This was about the time that SBC (later to become AT&T) went to flat rate long distance.

We're checking in on each other. If I don't call, Mom will call.

I told Mom "I FaceTimed [my BFF] and Rocky [our dog - he spends more and more time at her house because there he has a place to run where he doesn't have to wear a leash, I don't have to go out 24x7x365 no matter what the weather is to walk him, and he has three other dogs to play with] today." My Mom didn't have the slightest idea what I was talking about. I gave the dog food to my BFF's Mom because nobody over here eats dog food. I still have a little Beneful in the feed bowl, but Rocky's water dish has dried up. Their four dogs will have a high time because I bought Chef Michael's when I went to Target or Kroger and Beneful only when I go to HEB. Rocky loves HEB dog treats, on the other hand. He ate two five-ounce bags that I left where he could get them and he had a big tummy ache the next day. He wanted to hide behind the sofa the next day, and when I took him for his routine afternoon walk he had a big, runny poop that I was glad didn't happen in the house. When I came back, I said "don't let him sit down, take a look at his hind legs!" and my BFF rushed him off to give him a bath.

Talked to Mom morning and evening like usual. She called after 7:00 AM (because I didn't respond to her earlier calls) and she called before 7:00 PM (because she got too impatient and didn't wait until night and weekend hours on Sprint). Doesn't matter to me when she calls because I have "Share Everything" on Verizon. Pricey, but then I have two iPhones and an iPad and 8 GB of data on my plan. I haven't looked to see how much data I'll have with Verizon's new lower rates, but 6.5 GB will carry me for two weeks on the Farm (where if you want to access the Internet, you have to bring your own access as the only thing that carries electrons into the house is the KCP&L line) if I don't stream anything.

Talked to Mom morning and evening. I was in my recliner during the morning call, I was in my Escape going to get groceries during the evening call. I told Mom my grocery shopping would be fast because my BFF didn't give me the shopping list (she's in post-hospitalization rehab). It was, I was in and out in twenty minutes because I only went down four aisles (not the fastest shopper in the store).

Talked to Mom morning and evening today. She didn't have much to do today, and I slept. She commented that I should go to bed at night and stay awake during the day.

Mom got her morning phone call about 6:45 AM. She said I sounded sleepy. I must have been sleepy as I fell asleep in the recliner.

NO - Mom's sound asleep and the when she goes to bed she puts the phone on the kitchen counter and there are two doors between her ear and the phone. On the other hand, I sleep with my phone on one side of the bed and me on the other.

I talked to Mom last about 3:30 yesterday.

Mom called me this morning after I tried fruitlessly to reach her. She was getting ready to go out and harvest the garden. She still gardens at 90. But she doesn't know how to get the voicemail off her phone.

Talked to Mom a few minutes after 7:00 AM when my BFF woke me up.

Talked to Mom again a few minutes after 7:00 PM when she called me when I was waking up from a nap.
