  • Happy Mother's Day

    Happy Mother's Day to any mothers or soon to be mothers here! What did everyone get thier mom?!

    My Mom says to me Thursday "You know Sunday is mothers day?!" and I go "Don't you think I know that already?!" and I go "What do you want?!" and she goes "Nothing."

    Why the hell do SOME women have to be so cryptic?! Notice I said some.. don't want to get in any arguments hehe.. I know some women can be sane. Just tell me what you want and I'll go get it. Give me some ideas to work with.

    So she says a cheesesteak from Philadelphia. Philadelphia is like 1 to 1.5 hour drive from my house. So, I used some photoshop skills and some graphics around the net and I made her a mother's day card with a bear and some hearts and a rainbow and on the back was a coupon good for one trip to Philly for cheesesteaks.

    On the other hand, maybe what your Mom really wants from you is for you to say, I'm really glad you're my Mom!

    What mother didn't watch Doctor Phil the other day and wish their kids had written in so they could win that car

    Anyway, thanks for the good wishes, and I'd like to pass them on to everyone else,

      I'm so lucky! My son doesn't have to ask what I want. He knows. He gives me things like a recent photograph (framed) or two tickets to a musical or play (great orchestra seats), or he'll call the local florist (where he knows the flowers are fresh and the florist knows what kind of flowers I like) and in addition to flowers he will ask the florist to pick up a bottle of German Kabinet wine, chill it down in her refrigerators and deliver it with the bouque.

      He knows my tast in music and might send me the latest Josh Groban album, or a good DVD. Or he'll send me a gift certificate for the Apple iTunes music store.

      He _always_ calls AND sends a card. He's 3000 miles away, but I can always feel him close by. He never fails to tell me in many different ways how much he loves me.

      Thank you, God for giving me such a thoughtful loving son!

        I know things my Mom would like.. she !never! uses them. Same thing with her husband.

        Out of all the things I have bought her I only saw her use one.. an electric teapot and that's only because I accidentally left the normal tea kettle on the stove too long, all the water burnt out, and the tea kettle got burnt and ruined.

          THE ROSE

          Red roses were her favorites, her name was also Rose.
          And every year her husband sent them, tied with pretty bows.
          The year he died, the roses were delivered to her door....

          I'm gonna get fired if you don't start posting here .

          What *else* do you do? I dabble a little in woodworking, but I don't do much better at that than I do with restorations . Most of the time I'm around the house, and we get the family together whenever possible. This usually happens...

          Little kids come up with some really funny things. If you have one you'd like to share please do.

          I have a four year old grand daughter, who is small for her age. But she uses words like an adult. She likes to listen to her dad's CDs of Stevie Ray Vaughn. The other day, she was in a store...

          Getting it off my chest (long)
          by Ed_L
          I have a credit account at a jewelry store, that I haven't used in two years. My son also had an account there, but neither of us knew the other had one. He lives about 50 miles from me. Before Christmas, he went into the jewelry store, told them he had an account that he also hadn't used in quite a...
