Cool Mom, With Chili Sauce, Beating the Heat

1. Mom has worn a different T-shirt on each day of my visit. So far, she has worn Elton John, Rod Stewart, and the Trans Siberian Orchestra. She told me she has seen Elton John and Rod Stewart twice, TSO and Barry Manilow five times each. She's also seen Frank Sinatra, Woody Herman, Glenn Miller, and others too numerous to write. Kinda funny to see this ninety-one year old wearing Rod Stewart. Note to myself: keep going to concerts.
2. Food items are the thing I miss most about "home"(besides my family). Fish fries made with white Haddock fillets are my most missed northern, summer food. I bought one as soon as I got in on Monday. I'll have another one before I leave. We've also had bagels! And Grandpa's wouldn't be Grandpa's without a giant box of York peppermint patties in the freezer.
3. A swimming pool + a breeze = nature's air conditioning.


  1. Wow - your mom rocks! I'm glad you are having such a nice visit.

  2. your mom sounds like a neat lady.
