A continuing series of discussions with my 84 year old Mother Irene.
Don't ever discuss hearing issues with your elderly parents. Trust me on this one. Apparently my sister has a low voice and that's why Irene cannot hear her very well (translation - at all). And the doorbell? Well, that's because of the new screen door.
And despite the fact that the television volume is loud enough so that the people in the next town over know what my mother is watching, that really isn't an issue either.
Irene: "Have you ever notice that your sister has a very low voice?"
CJ: "No I haven't."
Irene: "You know, I don't need my glasses to hear the TV."
Funny, neither to I.
