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!

“Hey ya, it’s me.” (Who is me? I thought me was me, but apparently there is someone else walking around thinking they’re me.) It was my eldest… the GAP. I’d invited her out for a shopping spree. She’s lost twelve … Continue reading
This afternoon I called the GAP. “The baby wants to talk to you,” she said. He’s not really a baby any more, but his vocabulary, though seeming to double daily, is still quite small and often incomprehensible. “Okay,” I acquiesced. … Continue reading
Last night I celebrated another Mother’s Day with my girls. The grandkids love being with their Aunt Coco. Her sense of humor is a little lot quirky. (I have no idea where she gets it from.) The Bug found my … Continue reading
The front seat of Couponman’s car is always cluttered with torn coupons, receipts, and miscellaneous debris picked up at the 99¢ Store. I try to scooch to the front edge of the seat so that I don’t disturb his treasures. … Continue reading
