"The notion that such persons are gay of heart and carefree is curiously untrue. They lead, as a matter of fact, an existence of jumpiness and apprehension. They sit on the edge of the chair of Literature. In the house of Life they have the feeling that they have never taken off their overcoats."
- James Thurber, My Life and Hard Times

By the way...

This is why I celebrated Mother's Day:





Then... and Now.








As the Dixie Chicks sang, "Godspeed, little man."

Hi Gayle,
I missed your Mother's Day post (until just now). It's hysterical. I absolutely love your humorous writing style - wish I knew how to do it. Your son is quite handsome. And yes, I think the category of "mothers" covers quite a range.
