« The Rumours Of My Impeding Death Have Been Exaggerated | Main | So Wrong »



Very nice tribute to your mom, Lisa. Since gin and tonic is my favorite drink as well, I will lift one in her honor this evening. Our mother's sound similar...tiny, fiesty with a mouth like a sailor! thankfully, mine is still around. Like you, I will miss her every day when she is gone. Oh---I hope you're feeling better, too.



Lisa, that was beautiful and heartfelt. Tiny feisty redheads are a force to be reckoned with! My mom's drink is a gin and tonic, too...sometimes I feel like maybe we were separated at birth! Hope you are feeling better...hang in there, you will be feeling better soon, I am sure!


Lisa, your entry made me cry. I'm so glad you've got all those great stories and memories.


That was beautiful Lis, and Happy Birthday Mrs. B, up there in heaven. And by the by...it's my mom's birthday, too! She's 72 today. I've known you since we're 14 and I never knew our mom's shared the same birthday!


Now you've got me thinking of my mom!



That was a great tribute to your mom. Thanks for sharing!


BTW--I saw your category of the Howell High School Class of 1984. One of my old friends graduated from there in 1987--she had an older brother and sisters who went there too--small world!


OMG I am sitting here missing my own mom more than normal. Your tribute to your mom has left me speechless.

I don't drink so I will toast your mom with a diet rite and a smile!

I personally think that your mom did a great job on you, Lisa!

What I'm Reading

  • Edward Ugel: Money For Nothing
    Subtitled, One Man's Journey Through The Dark Side Of Lottery Millions. (****)
  • Susan Braudy: This Crazy Thing Called Love
    The true story behind the Billy Woodward shooting, the case on which Dominick Dunne based his novel, The Two Mrs. Grenvilles. (*****)

    True story about the mysterious life and death of a young woman who's real identity still remains unclear. Excellent read. (****)
  • Richard Yates: Revolutionary Road
    A novel about the alienation arising from living in the "perfect" suburbs. Hailed as a great literary book. I thought it was okay, at best. (**)
  • Annie Proulx: Close Range, Wyoming Stories
    A collection of lyrical short stories from Annie Proulx that contains Brokeback Mountain among other gems. (****)
  • John Grisham: The Innocent Man
    I can only quote from the jacket blurb: "If you believe that in America you are innocent until proven guilty, this book will shock you. If you believe in the death penalty, this book will disturb you. If you believe the criminal justice system is fair, this book will infuriate you." A must read. (*****)
  • Nancy Caldwell Sorel: The Women Who Wrote The War
    Fascinating look at women journalists at the front during WWII. (****)
  • Jack Olsen: Charmer
    Riveting true crime by a master. (****)
  • Ann Rule: Too Late To Say Good Bye
    Excellent telling of the Bart Corbin cases. (****)
  • Michael Crichton: Airframe
    Ehhh. Better than the back of a cereal box, I guess. (**)
