It is FULL OUT WAR!A mole desperately wants to take up residence in my flower bed. I have gently suggested a variety of relocations to him to no avail, so ...Hopefully she will keep up with Twitter. Since she never found regular blogging interesting...

Emily is in town this week, and she helped Mom pack my lunch for work last night. (Yes, I know, I am old enough, but when someone says, “I took last week’s leftovers, put it into a Gladware container, and it’s in a brown bag in the fridge,” a person DOES NOT SAY NO.) And she wrote me a note!
Enjoy your lunch, don’t work too hard.
It’s my first note since elementary school.
Yes, I tacked it to my cubicle wall.

As it happens, Aunt [Ina], Dad, and I watched Milk last night. Aunt [Ina] and I were discussing it today. She casually dropped this comment into the conversation: "Do you remember when Mom was so angry with Anita Bryant, her railing was not enough--she boycotted the orange juice?" Well, NO, I do not remember this, as I was not living in the home at the time. Of course, Ina was not living there either. I KNEW you would want to know this bit of info about Grandma.
My mother was so astounded by the stupidity that her head began to tilt under the weight of sheer stupidity. I forced her to high five me, gave her an A+ and a gold star and yelled, "THAT'S MY MOM! YOU'RE WAY SMARTER THAN OPRAH!"
As I scampered into the distance Mom said she'd always hoped to surpass Oprah.
Fun fact! Mom doesn't subscribe to O, and sometimes she brings it home for the library for recipes or the special feature (when it's about books).
