I'm watching reruns of West Wing on netflick. I was a fan when it was on, but alas, other than the characters, the plot is all new.

Tonight was titled: The Long Goodbye, so you can guess the topic. It involved CJ's father.

Look for year 4, episode 13.  I've no idea if it still to found on the web.

I had to think about that one for a moment, Mimi. I remember now. CJ's father had alzheimer's. An excellent series, and every so often my Barbara and  I will watch it again. She doesn't remember either, and I loved it so much that watching it again is never a problem.

Kind of a blessing in disguise, when I am searching for things for her to watch. For me, that is. Not for her, and not for you.

Thanks for your work as a volunteer here.

Chris

Thanks Chris.

For your wife, try ones with little plot. Usually music or sit coms. Lots of times, the oldies work best.

This reminded me of a movie I watched with my Barbara. Since it touches on dementia, and since it is so well acted, I would highly recommend it.

Still Mine. 2012, starring James Cromwell & Genevieve Bujold.

I got it from our local library, but it's streamable on Amazon Prime.

I saw this movie.  It was very realistic.
