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!

As the year closes, I find it doesn’t change much. We still eat too much, don’t see our loved ones often enough, and life travels at the same pace whether it’s good times or bad times. No, I take that … Continue reading
Recently I read some Words of Wisdom in another blog. I’ve elaborated on a few of those common sense tidbits and added a couple of my own learned experiences. If you feel something not so nice, say it inside your head. Wear earplugs … Continue reading
I toyed with going to an open mic night. I even wrote a comedy routine including animation, but chickened out. Here it is. Remember to laugh when you see (pause). Okay, let’s get 2 (hold up two fingers) things out … Continue reading
Some days just beckon action — either to begin something or end something. Like New Years. Like the day after Thanksgiving. Like Mondays. I always start diets after a fulfilling weekend. Even better when Monday falls on the first day of a … Continue reading
Imagine waking up and knowing what you want to be. Beethoven composed music at four. Tiger Woods wanted to be a golfer from age three. I wonder what age he was when he decided he wanted to be a philanderer? … Continue reading
