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!

When I gave birth to my children, I immediately felt a “change of heart” and gained a “testimony” of unconditional love. As a single mom (though it probably wouldn’t have been much different in a family with both parents), this unconditional … Continue reading
Today was my big day – really big number day. I turned 65. In the back of my mind, I heard Roy Clark singing, ?? Yesterday when I was young, the taste of life was sweet as rain upon my … Continue reading
So after last year’s expensive family vacation, we our plans set on a lesser expensive trip for this year. Perhaps an overnight stay at Motel 6 down the road playing Old Maid. Instead this email comes last week about the … Continue reading
