Hi, Mom!

Happy Birthday to you!


Today is my Mom's birthday.  She was actually born on Labor Day that year (for real), with which we tease her sometimes...  

A woman who seems to have knowledge of things as diverse as how to make several different sewing patterns come together to make ONE blouse.  How to make a musty book not stink.  Several recipes to use up zucchini, including one bread recipe that I wait impatiently for the 'zukes to come up to make. (Ironically, I will have to PURCHASE zukes this year, the slugs ate them all... snif...)  She taught me to cook, to keep a checkbook, tried to teach me to sew (hey, I sew on a mean button...),  has a high tolerance for fun, a low tolerance for... male cattle excrement, and is a generally all around cool person.

Happy birthday, Mama...  Your kid loves you.


(Haven't been writing my blog lately, sorry.  We fixed the modem problem, now the company is having problems with PROVIDING the internet at any speed, we are presently SLOWER than what we used to have as dial up, making up, or down loading anything almost impossible... So, it is supposed to be looked at soon.  Ahem.  Right.  Keep watching for them flying pigs... )

  4. Many happy returns of the day to your Mother! Please, i want to know her secret of how to make musty books not smell musty any more. We live in a swamp, after all. Is she willing to share that?

    1. :)

      What she had me do, was to take a seal-able type box, like Rubbermaid or Tupperware, put baking soda in the bottom, (or newspaper, but I think the soda works better), and then put the book in, open, if at all possible. Then put it someplace for a few days, take out and sniff, if it stinks, return to the box for more de-stinking. I had a book that was musty, and had cigarette stink. After a week of this process, I didn't smell much of anything, and so was able to read said book...

      Thanks again, Mom...
