I really do try to avoid "personal" posts but today my Mom turns an age that will not be revealed here so I may live to see my next birthday. I will say this about her though, she raised two boys who both wanted to be as funny as their Dad so the amount of bad jokes, bad puns, bad pranks and overall bad behavior that she put up with I'm sure verged on maddening. The fact that she didn't run out of the house screaming and pulling her hair out is nothing short of a miracle. And this four sentence blog post that might been seen by as many as 10 people is my way of saying THANKS and HAPPY BIRTHDAY MOM!!...I think we're even now.
