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!

Coco’s move to her own apartment didn’t exactly work out like she’d hoped. Come to find out her downstairs neighbor, Pixie and her dog, Cupcake, aren’t really much of a Pixie or a Cupcake. So Coco is on the move … Continue reading
The last week has reminded of many precious small things – saying “I love you,” arms of a toddler reaching up at you to be picked up, laughter, and bottles of Heinz catsup. What a treat, last week meeting a young handsome … Continue reading
