Ok this past late spring and summer was really hard. We cleaned out and sold two homes one my mother-inlaw and Uncle Ron, So this was going kinda good until Uncle was put in hostice I think he was there two months, cancer every where. So he just got settled and mom feel in her gorgeous shower all tile. Yes they are old and yes she brock her hip and are and ribs and shoulder. and she the 85yr.old lives through it, her youngest brother past in Sept. So after the back story we have everything. When the cold and snow goes we are going to tackle this stuff. Thanks for the hints it might make it easier. But I will need to be reminded in March or April ok.
