    Happy Mother’s Day to those who are moms, have moms, are grandmothers, great grandmothers or acted as mother surrogates in their lives. A robin family has nested in the large wreath on my back porch, so to Happy Mother’s Day to bird and animal moms of all varieties. To those whose moms are no longer with them, I hope you take the time today for good thoughts and happy memories of the one who nurtured you.

      This is why my family has a Mothers’ day luncheon at home and go to her favorite tea house before or after the holiday. All it took was one such visit to a resort restaurant that had reduced its menu, changed its service to buffet, and had strollers in the aisle for us to say never again.

      A special Happy Mother’s Day to Chips and her Mum (and our honorary mom). I hope that she will have a healthy and joyful day and that you will be able to spend a stress- free day with her.

    I just got to work this morning and my wife called to tell me that I didn’t say Happy Mother’s Day before I left the house. For my transgression I’ve been put in charge of dinner duty, Dominoes here I come. What, oh dominoes is good enough for the super bowl but it isn’t good enough for Mother’s Day?

      You’ve got that right, Don. What kind of food does you wife like best? Whatever it is you could order in up in advance and get it on the way home. If my husband brought pizza home for Mother’s Day, it would be awfully frosty in my house for the next several days.

        Of course I’m not going to bring pizza home for dinner on Mother’s day, I was just thinking out loud. More that likely I’ll stop my H.E.B and get a rotisserie chicken and maybe some potato salad, I’m not a complete fool. Anyways I got her favorite perfume from Macy’s earlier this week. Its funny though, we both tell each other what we want for Mother’s day and Father’s day and then we go out and get it.

      All of this; it sums up Trump and all of the screaming red- faced racists who follow him. Those in the crowds and those in the boardrooms.

    Happy Mothers Day to all the moms, grandmoms, aunties, and all those who have been mothers to others, whether here at TOD or elsewhere.

    May your day be better than mine, at least so far. Woke up very early with sudden need to hit the bathroom, and cold sweats, etc., all out of nowhere. Thought food poisoning but then my brain said you are female and it was very sudden. So checked symptoms for heart attack, and, oh my, it could be that, too. So I called 911 and had 4 handsome men in my living room for a bit.

    Everything checked out fine and we all agreed it is probably food poisoning. But they recommended I have someone stay with me thruout the day, just in case. So it is still a bit early, here on the West Coast, but in a bit I will call my very busy daughter and ask if she’d like to come spend the day with her mom seeing as how it is Mothers Day and all. Can that be considered a form of blackmail?

    Anyway, hope your day is full of joy and family.
    Hugs to everyone.
