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!

So, I’ve been informed that maybe a family gathering at Thanksgiving is “a little too soon” since our close encounter of a third kind in August. “Do you want to do a 5K run with me Thanksgiving morning?” asked Coco. … Continue reading
“You gotta hear what Maddo can say,” said the GAP excitedly over the phone. Apparently his speech therapy at two and a half was paying off. She handed him the phone. “Okay, say it to YaYa” I heard in the … Continue reading
“I like your hair,” said the receptionist, one of my co-workers. “Thanks,” said the GAP. She’d braided it and wrapped it around her head. “Can you let my mom know I’m here.” “Oh,” she said. “Now I know. Your mom is … Continue reading
