Life with Stevie

Stevie at a Civil War Re-inactment
Some of you may or may not know that my "mentally handicapped" uncle lives with us. He came to live with us after my grandmother passed away. It was a natural move because Stevie and I have a relationship  more like a brother and sister than uncle & niece. We are also only 9 years apart.

To say he is "mentally handicapped" is unfair. In my mind there are just some things he can not do. Big deal.  In some ways he is very smart. Just ask him about the "Beatles".

Today I walked into his living room and found him watching Cspan. The British House of Commons was on. He was talking to one of our cats and said, "I love watching this show. They are so funny when they fight". See, he is smart.
