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!

Everyone loves magic. Especially nine year old little boys. Couponman found a deal on a dinner theater with Merlyn the Wizard. His eyes sparkled with excitement. Soup was delivered after Merlyn emptied a shaker of salt into his cupped hand, … Continue reading
“Let’s play a game,” said the seven-year-old Worm as soon as I arrived to watch them while their parents went to Back to School Night. “Nakes,” said the Mouse. “He wants to play Snakes and Ladders,” the Worm corrected. That … Continue reading
I’m not much of a social butterfly so when Couponman finagled a free Harbor Cruise at Ports of Call with a senior citizen’s group, I wasn’t overly excited. “Come on,” he coaxed. “You’ll have a great time. They’re even serving dinner … Continue reading
