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!
