In 1992, while visiting Rosemary, she said this to me while exhaling dragon smoke;
“You did’nt get rid of your family. They got rid of you?”
I turned slowly, and just gave her a long look. Afterall, I am the only one who flew over the cuckoo’s nest – and was out of there a long time ago!
“Nice try – Mom!”
When we used to look at the family photos together, Rosemary saved the best for last. The look on my brother’s face when Rosemary forced him to give me a loving hug caused mother to laugh hysterically, while precious smirked out the side of his face.
