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 was having one of those days. One of those days that creep up on you. One of those days you could do without. Even a shirtless Ryan Gosling would have trouble putting a smile on my face. I’d promised … Continue reading
Yesterday the Bug, my oldest grandchild, and I attended a flower festival at the Grow Native Nursery, part of the Rancho Santa Ana Botanical Gardens. We were assigned by Coco, my daughter, the nursery manager, to look like interested buyers. … Continue reading
Out of the clear blue sky, like the opening of stage curtains for an entertaining Broadway show… Pick a little, talk a little. Laugh, laugh, laugh. Pick a little more, talk a little more. Laugh again. Question: What do you get, when … Continue reading
When my kids screw up (believe it or not, they still do), I say, “How’d that happen.” The truth of the matter is, I know. They take after me. My daughter Coco knows I love irises and since she digs and … Continue reading
