  3. Making my grandmother’s cookie recipe and distributing cookies to friends and neighbors

  5. Thank! I saw in your profile that you have a pineapple, I had one of those too, but not as beautiful as yours

  6. Lol! I ate it and planted the top from the baby. A new generation begins. (The fruit was sweet, but very small.) In 5 years maybe I’ll have another pineapple and will share a photo here.

  7. In elementary school a boy invited me to go to the circus with him and his mother. I’ve always had fond memories of it.

He was overall happier and more cheerful in dementia than before he had it.

  12. Saw a man walking in town who looked just like my husband’s best friend who died 2 years ago. Then the next week I saw someone who looked like his wife from behind. (She moved to another state about 2,000 miles away after he died.)
