I'm constantly amazed how Papa can manage a staff of many, the business and administration of a medical office and the politics of government yet be so forgetful at home. It cracks me up the things he forgets. For example, the other day he was making a doctor appointment for himself. I hear him talking on phone and then I hear the shuffle of feet coming into the dining room where I'm reading the paper.
He frantically asks me, "who's my primary care physician?"
I reply, "you don't know?"
"I can see his face in my mind, but I don't remember his name" Papa answered.
I tell him and he walks happily away to complete his appointment.
