Lick the donkey sponge

Another day on the ladder today. Ow, ow, ow. After six hours, only one of four soffit sets done. Mostly due to the need to move the ladder every few feet for every damn step.

Primarily in the memory-recall and cognition areas of his brain, which makes his memory faulty and his sense of reality very odd. He remembers things that never happened with great aclarity. She is having to deal with his deterioration, and it's not pretty.

Lots of busy stuff happening now through Convergence weekend. No more projects!
