Happy Mother’s Day!

Normally on Sundays we do beginnings – taking a look at the start of a Peter Abrahams novel, including those written under the Spencer Quinn moniker. But today is Mother’s Day, so I’ll be remembering my own mother, who taught me most of what I know about writing by the time I was 12 or so. She died before I became a writer but that shouldn’t stop me from saying, Thanks, Mom. Especially for the tips on dialogue!

(Last day for the Heart of Barkness Mother’s Day special, by the way.)

    Greetings to everyone on this lovely Mothers Day here in the DC area, although we have just survived that very unexpected mid-May polar vortex that dropped temperatures at night the last two nights to right around freezing. Today is lovely though, a great day to be outdoors some, although of course properly socially distanced.

    I am pleased to report to our official scorekeeper (Beau) that two more letters have been prepared and will be mailed tomorrow, one to the Storyteller and the other addressed to Our Honorable Veteran. The one to the Storyteller will actually have some printed photos of him and Teddy from a get together in Vermont several years ago (Rose and the Grizz were there as well).

    Happy Mother’s Day to all youse who are mothers by blood or mothers in a different way. To honor Mama Luna, we got up early to make her breakfast in bed. We made bacon which we ate. We made more bacon which Ole Doc ate. We then moved on to making an omelet. We included the shells to give it a nice fluffy textured. We brought it to her with a note that read: Happy Mother’s Day! P.S. The bacon was delish.

    We also wanted to honor another mother with whom we have spent a lot of time. We blurred to Rio’s to wish Mother a happy Mother’s Day. After giving her the omelet as note, we checked ourselves into Mother Jail without being asked. All in all, it’s been a good day.

    I can report that two more letters were handwritten yesterday, one to our Storyteller and one to Our Honored Veteran. I can also report that, once again, that Damn Pixie refused fo include glitter. I hope the Storyteller and Our honored Veteran know this lack of presentation is a reflection of that Damn Pixie’s work and not mine. I can report that once the lackluster letters were written, That Damn Pixie walked to the post office and dropped them in the mail. Wheeze!
