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!

“Wanna go to our good soup place?” I asked Nae. Her eyes glazed over just thinking about it. The soup was our drug of choice. The rest of the day we’d be useless at work, but what the hey. We … Continue reading
The phone rang. I glanced at the caller’s id and recognized the number. “¿Dónde estás mi amiga?” I said, practicing for my upcoming vacation. “I’m stuck-o in the stairwell-o,” came the reply. Nae had forgotten her door pass. We’ve grown close … Continue reading
“Let’s grab a bite to eat,” I said to Nae. We’d been working hard and deserved a break. “Where do you want to go?” I gave her the look like “duh, where you think?” We have a favorite place. It’s … Continue reading
