Ketchup With Us #17

Blah, blah, blah. Ketchup With Us. Number seventeen. Yada, yada, yada. Hosting with Mel. Blah, blah, blah. Mother’s Day edition. Blah, blah, blah. And here’s mine. About a lady who needs NO INTRODUCTION.

Because right in the middle of breakneckedlypacking up THIRTY-SIX YEARS worth of clothing, kitchenware, bedding, electronics, furniture, tools, pictures, books, music and other cherished family artifacts, she stopped to make a practice test for my daughter who had an English quiz the next day.

Because she NEVER says no.

(Well, almost never.)

I love you, Mom.


Me, between the best moms in the world, future and present.

‘KETCHUP WITH US’ – Prompt 17

In 57 words or less, tell us about a special mother in your life. You can pick anyone you want. We won’t tell.








Oh, yeah? Well, what did YOU get for Mother’s Day?

By now, most of you know my amazing daughter, creator of such blog posts as If Nerds Could be Superheroes and The Mysterious Treat Trick. She’s my biggest fan and she was truly pissed when she learned of my non-fan mail a few days ago. I’m not sure how much longer I’ll be able to balance on this rickety pedestal she’s got me on but I sure am loving the ride for now.

The kid cracks me up every single day. Check out my Mother’s Day present. That wad of cash was $4 of her own money, thank-you-very-much.


 Happy Mother’s Day to my mom … and to all the other moms out there who I call friends.

Word to Your Mother, Y’all …
