Happy Mother's Day, Rita

Today it's all about Rita. She was the mother of five rowdy brats and I know my brother is treating her like a queen today.

Some of you know some of the silly and not so silly things Rita has done, but some of you don't. Here are the links to my posts about Rita.

The Rita Chronicles, Part I
The Sprinklers

The Rita Chronicles, Part II
Pumping Her Own Gas

The Rita Chronicles, Part III
Bus v. Rita Incident

The Rita Chronicles, Part IV
The Enforcer

Happy Mother's Day, Mommy...I love you and miss you!

*Here's a list of
special freebies for all the mom's in Southern CA. See? Grandma J is always looking out for her homies.

Your Mother was an absolute trip. I love her. I see where you get the sillies from.
The sprinkler story? HILLARIOUS!! Made my whole day. Ok, it is almost midnight, but it made my whole day today, and possibly tomorrow too.
Happy Mother's day to you my friend.
Take care, Suz

I love your Mama stories! I was sitting in church this morning, next to my own dear mother, and I thought of you and your three girls and your son! I hope you are having a wonderful mothers day surrounded by the family that you love. I am really thankful for you Grandma J! I miss my own Grandmothers so much. I think you are such a wonderful person and an inspiration. Love, Becky

Happy Mother's Day Grandma J, and Happy Mother's Day to my Grandma...Rita....

as for the Apprentice, Joan Rivers is a hideous human being, she has been pure hate on the show. Annie has always been nice, worked hard, but never been cruel....and shame on Donald Trump for not stopping Joan from making such horrible comments on air.

still waiting to see who wins....15 minutes left....

What a character. I would have loved her! I particularly loved the pumping gas story. Soooo funny!! I wish they still had service stations like that. I hate pumping my own gas!
