As some of you know, I have gotten wayyyyy out of the habit of writing posts here. But recently it occurred to me that I should have been making copies of each of my posts as I went — instead of looking at copying almost 1,000 of them now.
Soooo, as I started copying them (and actually enjoying reading them again), I decided that I would post the ones I copy again, as I make the copy. We’ll see how this works. I may even slip in an original once in a while.
I started this blog in September, 2007, at the strong suggestion of my daughter (If you know her, you know how “persuasive” she can be — read that “pushy”). But as it turns out, she was right — I’m so glad I got all these stories down. Thanks, DD.
Here is post #1.
An Introduction to My Mother
My Mom is a funny lady. She is hesitant about starting a blog but I know she will love it as soon as she gets a few comments (don’t forget to leave one). Mostly she is truthful except everything she writes about me which is a complete fabrication. She drinks (tea) way too much. Actually, if she would have a real drink once in a while she’d think blogging is a terrific idea.
She lives with my Dad in retirement bliss (his entire family is within earshot). They’ve been married forever and are the only happily married couple that I know. Okay, that’s a bit of an overstatement…..they are the happiest married couple I know.
Growing up with a funny mother has lots of advantages and one disadvantage — the funny is contagious. Here’s hoping you enjoy her wit and charm as much as I do. I love you Mom.
