Crazier than 1929 when the stock market crashed?  Crazier than any of the Great Depression years?  Crazier than 1940 when America joining the 2nd World War?  Crazier than 1945 when we nuked Japan and toppled the Nazis?

Sure, lady.  Whatever.

My mom with huge dementia issues, takes forever to eat and down her pills. She's in and out of lucidity. A couple of days ago, after struggling with her food awhile,  she said, "Everything is just a mess, isn't it?"

I said "Yes, mom. You don't know how right you are."

Yeah.  Did all of that happen in half a year?

I've got my victory garden going, but the farking dust is covering it with dirt and sand.  And apparently it's radioactive from some failed nuclear experiment in eastern Europe.  The market's crashed and rebounded, leaving almost everyone behind, disease and death are leaving bodies piled high in spare rooms and trucks as mass graves become more popular.  I mean ... it's the first 6 months.  It took decades to whip all that shiat into existence, last century.

It's like ... slow, for old people.  We do things faster now.

She didn't say it was over when the Germans bombed Pearl Harbor.

/Tough old lady.

FTA: "I just think of good things, not bad things. I like my friends. I like my boyfriends," she said.

Go on with your bad self, 103 year old lady :)

Some news meat-puppet was talking about Covid and said "A lot of us have never seen anything like this ..."

And my 97 y/o mother said to the TV "Who has?!"
 
2020-07-02 1:19:36 PM  
my 102 year old relative, who contracted and beat covid in his nursing home, has said similar.

We are certainly trying to give Year 536 a run for its money.

My granny is still fighting coronavirus...but has been irate over not being allowed to smoke, so she still has fight left in her.

Yes.

There was that meme in 2016 ish where the people from 2018 and 2017 were finding the grizzled person from 2016 cute. I was trying to find it the other day and had insufficient google-fu.

It came to mind, no idea why....

I did a bit of genealogy research on this happy lady.

I found her gravestone.

... !

But note, that she is not in the grave! Long may it wait! Meanwhile, her late husband Rudolf, whose family was also from Yugoslavia, waits for her to return from Illinois to Kansas, where she was born with the maiden name of Yencic. She had a brother who sadly died in 1940, possibly in uniform given the date. His name was John F. There was also a sister, Francess, named after her Mother so my guess for the F is Frances.

I love you Luis and I want to have your baby. That is one thing that is going well this year. The human race is not reproducing like it used to.

Wait. (Checks WorldoMeters).

Shiat. We are farked. Oh, you poor doomed children. You don't want to know.

Nice find.

But can 2016 beat 2020? We lost Carl Reiner, the 2000 year old man!

She's long forgotten what it was like just 30 years ago.

I thought 2020-103 = 1917.  She was there.  She probably puked on people and had her diaper changed by people who died from it.

The 103 year old has. Which is who I was talking about.

It may only be in the running for the silver, but 1968 deserves some recognition if only because Bobby Kennedy and Martin Luther King, Jr. were killed.  Casualties in Vietnam were close to the highest they'd been and protestors were blowing stuff up then as well as now, not only over the war but also about sexism and racism; the Chicago Democratic convention saw the police wade into the protestors cracking every head they saw; and Nixon was elected President.

Trump by himself, however, is coming close to lapping these moments in our history.

Not to mention the Soviet (technically the Warsaw Pact, whatever) invasion of Czechoslovakia. It contributed to the suppression of popular will in the region for twenty years.
