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!

No worry about close-ups when you’re on the Couponman Vegas tour. All of our discounted tickets meant there would be no close-ups of anything. Not only could we not see, we couldn’t hear. Actually our seats had nothing to do … Continue reading
The Worm had never scored a goal before, or for that matter, even been close. She played for the social aspect. Probably with the same attitude that Cheezy had played football. He wanted to run through the paper. You know … Continue reading
Last night Couponman and I trekked our way to Hollywood. Trekked is the right word. We took the little known route, the one never to be duplicated. “I know what I’m doing” he’d said after I asked, “Do you know … Continue reading
During my lunch period, I ran over to see my grandkids swim class. The Mouse was in a Mommy and Me session. In my days we called it going in the water with my mom. “Watch him do the torpedo,” … Continue reading
Last night Couponman and I went to the Ahmanson’s production of the play War Horse. We experienced a bit of genius — when life and make believe come together. The puppetry used to portray the main characters was spectacular. Each … Continue reading
