My sweet Grandson Tiger is walking!
It sure does change things!
He loves outdoors so has new shoes!
Cowboy boots for a one year old! 

Helping in the garden

Off come the clothes so he can play in the mud!

Walking has changed things for Mom & Dad
but they love it!

W is for Walking!

V is for Very Very Happy

Back in November I did a 'B' post for Brother
When I left Texas I thought I would not see my brother again...boy was I wrong!

So I am VERY VERY Thankful!
In November my brother was given a very short time to live...but lots of prayers later he is doing so much better!   
Wednesday Mom and I drove over to see him.  He looks great!  He has gained weight and his color is good and he can get around without his walker!  The Doctors say if he takes care of himself he can last a year at least.  
He is still ill and could take a turn for the worse at any time but for now he is still here.  Still my baby brother and he can still make me laugh!

Thank you God for you many Blessings to my family and for giving me more time with my brother!

Can you imagine remembering every detail of your life?  The good and the bad!  I can't begin to fathom how hard that might be. 
This condition is called highly superior autobiographical memory (HSAM) 

A new TV show on CBS is called
Unforgettable and is about a NY cop starring Poppy Montgomery as Carrie Wells who has HSAM and uses it to help solve murders.

It's a pretty good show and I enjoy watching it.  I must admit it makes me think about remembering everything and really how hard that would be to handle.  

Marilu Henner, the actress, has HSAM and is the consultant on the TV show.
TV Guide.com 
 She did a 60 Minutes interview and you can read an interesting report on her HERE.  Only six people in the world are known to have HSAM.
Marilu suspects her 15 year old son has it but is too young to be tested.   

So for Miss Jenny's Alphabe-Thur 
U is for Unforgettable!
