Week 3: Shades of Grey


The window of the art shack is the subject of this Week 3 photo. Shades of grey is the theme.

On a completely different subject, does anybody watch NCIS (Mark Harmon, call me!) and happen to catch last night's episode? Bob Newhart played a former NCIS medical examiner, with Alzheimer's. He nailed it. I recognised the "I am lost" look. Even worse, I felt the "I am lost to you" look.

Yes, I saw it too. I had the feeling that was going to be the deal as soon as he came into the room. I have a hard time watching shows when I know there is going to be a character with Alzhiemer's. I tend to steer clear of them. Been there, lived through that.

I saw it, too. I never thought Bob Newhart was a good actor before this. It must have been difficult for you.(also a rare one where I figured out who did it and why right away but never mind, I still like an hour of Mark Harmon.)

I saw it. I saw that look on his face. And it made me think of all the times my mother had the same look. Thankfully, she always knew who I was and would always ask me to explain things to her. Even though she often didn't remember what I'd told her. I hate Alzheimer's.

Didn't see it. Bob Newhart doesn't have Alzhiemer's does he? He was acting the part?

About your photo; excellent job of framing the image. The reflection in the window is perfect!

I did not see it, but my brother said he nailed it too.

Saw it and he did a very good job with it. I was touched when they played the slide show at the end so he could remember who he was. I just can't watch this stuff though without getting teary eyed.
Hope you are doing well.

I missed it - too bad because I really need a little more information and dramatizations help my rather concrete mind process new ideas. I'll be staying with my father in law for a few weeks and his Alzheimer's has really accelerated since his wife passed away a few weeks ago.
