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!

Coco is my deeply convicted, not in a jail kind of way, child. She is a router for lost causes with dark blue sorrowful eyes. As a little girl, she protected broken items from being tossed out by collecting them in … Continue reading
In a world where technology often seems to be stealing our social and language skills, the Kindle™, a wireless reading device read on a small illuminated screen has spurred a revived ferocity of reading. Book clubs are springing up all … Continue reading
I have more hair on my legs than on my head. I enjoy a good hearty laugh more than chocolate. (With my dad, it may have been a toss-up.) I curse when I do plumbing. I cry easily when something … Continue reading
When I was expecting my first born, I had lofty idealistic plans to be the perfect mom. I’d be in tune with this child – knowing her every desire, fulfilling her every need, and understanding her every thought. By the … Continue reading
No one deserves a broken heart, unless maybe that kid who chased me home from school when I was in the second grade. I don’t think I ever got one valuable smidgen of enlightenment from having a damaged heart, and I hate them once … Continue reading
