About Me"Mom, you're on crack," my kids' favorite response to my valuable comments." I like to think of myself as the grandma humorist of the 21st Century. At best, I'm Erma Bombeck on crack.
I've been telling people what to do for years. And for the same number of years, they've been ignoring me. What better way to continue the tradition than to start blogging!
I hope you enjoy my funny... working its way up to hilarious... blog.
Please leave COMMENTS. I love to know you enjoy the posts. Some days your comments make my whole day. I'm of the age when that might be as good as it gets!

I want to first apologize to you. I know you are not supposed to apologize, but I just must. I taught a class this morning and had envisioned making beautiful Golden Tickets taped to a big chocolate bar just like … Continue reading
Coco is tough. There isn’t much that makes her cry. When she was young, she’d endure pain and never wince. She waffled her foot on a floor furnace, ironed the top of her foot, fell out of a swing, bit … Continue reading
“I have salmon for tonight,” Couponman mumbled. “She didn’t go to Disneyland,” I answered. “What kind of answer is that?” he asked. “She ran out of time,” I explained further. “What does Disneyland have to do with salmon?” “What does … Continue reading
