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!

I often think about the things I haven’t done. I haven’t enriched the world with my inventions or cured cancer. I have problems just figuring which direction to head out from my driveway. I haven’t read all the good books. … Continue reading
The Bug and his dad went on a Father-Son campout last night. I’ve “pretended” to like camping most of my adult life, but to be honest I think flush toilets are just about my favorite invention. One week after Cheezy … Continue reading
Long hours, too short of days is my life lately. The upside is that the family vacation to Costa Rica is paid for. But even with the next goal – a resistance spa – in mind, the seven-day-a-week, twelve hour … Continue reading
