Mother's Day, WZPL 99.5 style


On Friday, my daughter, Sara, surprised me by reading an essay she entered on "My mom's the bomb," a WZPL 99.5 radio show.  The "trick" to get me down there was a "breakfast for the entrants."  Since I listen to the show, I had a feeling it was a little more than that.

My "baby daughter, Sara" had written a beautiful entry - for me.  What can I say to brag about her?  If I do it too loudly, it sounds like I'm tooting my own horn - Which the Smiley show was doing at 7:30 as we drove in traffic to get there.  She did make me cry, and laugh.  Good essay, Sara!  I just wish I'd have thought to take a photo with Dave Smiley, KJ, Toni, and Producer Will. 

Although we didn't get the trip to New York City, I did receive these beautiful flowers, a DONUT (you'll see it in my hand) and a very generous gift card to Biaggi's!  It was a great time with Sara, and perhaps we spread a good word for straight spouses and GLBTs at the same time.

It's been so long since I've posted that I had over 100 unmonitored comments.  While a lot were spam, a bunch were for the delete pile, there were a few that needed to be posted.  If your comment just appeared somewhere, that is why.

Writing a post takes me a lot of time, and I just don't get my thoughts organized to do that.  That's why I've let the blog go without new posts.

This winter I got a knee replacement.  It's doing pretty well.  I have good bending and straightening, and just need to grow stronger.  As I get stronger, I've been told the soreness will diminish. 

Also this winter I got two more grandkids!  Grand total is now EIGHT!  I love them all so much.

The winter was LONG and COLD!  Longest, coldest (I think) on record for Indiana. 

Yesterday I bought some starts of asparagus and I will plant them in my yard.  Too bad it'll be a year before I can harvest any.  Maybe I'll blog when I pick them (but don't count on any posts soon.)  
Btw, this is not my own garden, 'though it is similar to mine.  I just copied someone else's photo.
