As a rule my neighbors and I are on different time schedules and it is a rare occasion to see one or another. But this morning as I headed to my car all decked out in my yellow curly wig and made- up clown face I could see my neighbor Tom from across the way staring at me with his mouth agape. (In the past year we have lost two neighbors to dementia) and I had a feeling Tom might be thinking here we go again. I quickly rolled down my window as I exited my driveway and smiled and explained what Ms Millie was up to. He laughed and said thank you for reassuring me and for doing what I do.
This little episode put me in an even better mood as I giggled on my ride to the hospital. Pearl was waiting for me in the lobby and noticed my happy face and I told her about my neighbor’s reaction to my wig and costume.
We set up our pushcart and headed off to help some patients feel better. They seemed to like my yellow wig and Pearl’s purple wig and little hat.
