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!

You remember I don’t do Christmas shopping, actually any kind of shopping, right? We received a Costco coupon in the mail for $20 off Sonicare toothbrushes, and figured everyone in the family could use a little hygiene. I sent Couponman off … Continue reading
My sister introduced me to the perfect razor just for women — the Venus. I’ve always struggled with those cheapish disposable razors. Then I remembered Couponman had brought me a razor as some swag from a convention he’d attended. Through … Continue reading
Yesterday I was off to one of my favorite places to play — the Los Angeles County Fair. Let’s hope it wasn’t a repeat of a couple of years ago when the GAP and the grandkids accompanied me. It was 103° and the … Continue reading
