And It Was the Truth

I feel compelled to mention that we have been at war with Iraq for five years. Five years. All this time at war has surely broken us in some terrible way.

And on a lighter note, the lovely Karen wrote today about the first time her husband met her parents, and it reminded me of the first time Lefty met my mom.

We had lunch in Orono, Maine. An Italian place, pasta and salads. I may have had a glass of wine - I was nervous. There was talking and laughing, Lefty has a gift for making people feel at ease. My mom liked him, she smiled a lot and I breathed a huge sigh of relief. I walked her out to her car after lunch, and as we crossed the street she looked me in the eye and said, "Genetic hair disaster waiting to happen."


  1. I try to avoid using cutsey acronyms, but this morning, I am truly LOL! And you know, when I saw the weddings pics, I viewed it differently. I thought, wow, how could their children have anything but great hair?!

    And thank you for linking to me--it's like a warm hug!

  2. Thanks, Karen. I'm all about the hugging!

    Have a great day.

  3. Oh, and OBVIOUSLY, she was wrong!
