Where do you live?
He can't watch movies because by the time the commercial break is over he can't remember what the movie is about. He CAN watch Funniest Home Videos and The Antique Road Show over and over again. It doesn't matter if it's the same episode; each time Dad views it, it is a whole new episode for him.
Don't think for a moment Pop doesn't love life. He is an officer, a gentleman, the best husband in the world to our Mom who passed away, and we couldn't ask for a better father. So what if he has no short term memory?
He is courteous, loving, and happy to be alive. The one part of the day that Dad loves is reading the morning newspaper. Most of the time he just reads the headlines and a few paragraphs. He always finds a headline that didn't use correct verbage. Pop hates people who slaughter the English language. He says, "Forgive them for they know not what they do."
