When this blog was started, both of us (husband and wife) were diagnosed with Parkinson's Disease. On May 2, 2013 wife's diagnosis was changed to Essential Tremors without Parkinson's, and husband's diagnosis remains Parkinson's Disease It has been a long journey to date!

It's A Small, Small World!
This weekend we attended two graduation parties (tis the season). On Sunday an amazing thing happened.
The graduate's mom was introducing me to her own mother, her stepfather, and her mother's friend (we'll call her Lady H) and mentioned that Lady H was from a city (Beloit) that is 150 miles south of us. Oh a whim, I asked Lady H if she by any chance knew Lady B, who is a very good friend of ours. Beloit has a population of about 50,000, so you would expect her answer to be "no!"
Well, I nearly feel over when Lady H said Lady B happened to be a very good friend of hers and in fact, she was also a friend of the graduate's grandma. Talk about a small world! Who would have ever thought that would happen.
We had a very enjoyable time discussing mutual memories because they were also friends with another dear friend of ours (Lady BL who has passed on).
So many times I have asked someone from another city/town if they knew "so and so," and of course the answer is always no unless that person lives in a very small town where everyone knows everyone!
It's a small, small world after all! Has that ever happened to you? Mary P.S. This post was going to be about the difference between PD and ET, but I just had to tell this unusual story.
