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!

Just because I’m good at one thing doesn’t mean I can do related items well. I can throw together great pie guts, but my crust is not as good as Mom’s was. I know Microsoft products better than most; if … Continue reading
Clem is a diabetic who likes donuts, a hard worker who likes a good laugh, a firm believer of good in a chaotic world, a realist who enjoys going to the movies, a generous soul in a selfish climate, a … Continue reading
We paid attention to the grandkid’s busy schedule, making sure they had time to attend book club. We spent a few hours at a company picnic and enjoyed the food and games to let the firm know our appreciation for … Continue reading
As you are well aware, I have nicknames for favorite (or infamous) people in my life. So it should be no surprise that this is true at work also. There’s Georges of the Jungle, Mike-Mike-Mike-Mike-Mike (the seagulls from Nemo), and … Continue reading
Sleep, after you turn eight years old, is a very precious commodity. I haven’t had much of it lately. After a several nights until midnight at the office this past week, I’m wondering what daylight looks like. So this morning as I read … Continue reading
