MENTAL NOTE

"Though we cannot make our sun stand still, yet we will make him run."
Blue, resist the urge to use facebook. You can do it. Good luck.
Cats and dogs can be friends. So can cowboys and indians. So can we.
Why try to be the best when there's no hierarchy in heaven?

  1. I'm so happy for you that you have a good Momma, Blue!

  2. What beautiful words. I'm sure your mother will positively love it ... as I'm sure she does you.

    Take care of you, Blue, and then some.

    1. Ah... there she is. Well, my mother is the quiet type who finds it hard to say, "I love you." But then I'm reminded of many a song that tells me words don't mean that much. To soothe me, you know :)

      How are you doing today?

    2. Mighty fine thanks, Blue. Gorgeous day Down Under. Rather chilly but the early morning sun is out, coffee is on, and the birds are going, cheep cheep cheep.

      You?

      Delete
    3. Cheep cheep cheep... sounds so much better than creep creep creep ;) Hi Wendy! I just stopped by to type bitch and piss-n-shit. I never expected to do that today, but when I read your post about how sweet little Muppet had been abused by that sob I so wanted to put him in that tiny cage and sit in his own.... (let's rhyme) piss-n-shit. THERE. I said it again. The things that people do. But something tells me Muppet would want to give you a well-deserved Mom's Day present if he could. Maybe he can by just loving you back.

      Delete
    4. I can think of all sorts of horrible things to do to the person who mistreated Muppet, but I'll just be grateful he's with Wendy.

    5. Okay, technically I said I wanted to sit in his piss-n-shit, but you get the idea. It's just when I get upset, I tend to skip words. Do you reckon I need help?

      Delete
    6. Bitch and piss-n-shit - I may add those words to my repertoire.

      And yes, creep creep creep, does indeed sound better.

      Delete
    7. May sounds like nay. So how the internal-comment-linking- monkey-business going down under?

      Delete
    8. I'm ashamed to say that I have not practiced. To busy mopping up piss-n-shit. Didn't expect to say that twice in one day.

      Delete
    9. Twice in one day... Shockingly charming!

  3. Aww. Nothing better than Moms. Seriously, there's nothing better in this world. And this is a very nice tribute to yours. :)

    1. Nothing? Really? Ten billion and a private beach? No? Okay, I agree. Sorry wonderful fathers out there.

      Delete
    2. Oh yes, Dads are awesome too. Especially mine. I could go on forever about how amazing both of my parents are, they work so very well together.

      But let's face it, when the kids call home and Dad answers the phone, the conversation usually goes: "Oh hi Dad! How are you? Good? Great! So...is Mom there?"

      Delete
    3. For a moment I thought you were quoting my Bollywood bride Angie. Whenever she phones her parents and Daddy picks up the phone, she says hi where's mom? Good to hear you've got wonderful parents.

  4. At least she gave you a big TV
    Who cares if you can or can't see lol
    Well I guess seeing is better indeed
    But now you can see large at your feed
    Those remakes though
    Might want to be blind at your show
    Great tribute indeed to your mom
    And then some and then some

    1. It's as big as a tree
      Making me feel like Mini-Me
      So big those reboots look good
      Just kidding but they should
      Reboot, remake, reinterpretation
      In my book equals utter devastation

      Delete
    2. haha that is grand
      Poor trees must be jealous in your land
      Reboots need to be thrown in a hole
      And enjoyed by only a mole

      Delete
    3. That hole needs to be big
      One I'd like to dig
      Throw them in to begin
      Like in a massive bin

      Delete
    4. Could bury them in the desert I guess
      Or go to the bermuda triangle and dump the whole mess

      Delete
    5. Or send them to you
      You clearly know what to do
      Hide them in a shoe
      Flush them like poo

  6. Aaaw so sweet of your Momma Blue! I'm sure she's proud to have a son like Blue.

    Gotta go for now. Be back later to visit all your awesome friends that you re-routed to my blog :) But before that - HAPPY MOTHER'S DAY Blue's Momma!

    1. As sweet as sugar. I don't know if she's proud. I've never asked. Isn't it strange that grown-ups still want to hear their parents are proud of them. Why is that?

      Yes, those are awesome friends, alright. If there's one thing I've learned from blogging... it's that there's still hope for humanity. I mean that in a non-sarcastic way. Friendly, open-minded individuals...

    2. Pretty in Pink As A Baby's Bottom.

    3. That could be a sequel to the movie if it hadn't been quite so many years. Molly Ringwald would have a baby with the good looking rich guy in the movie and she'd be Pretty in Pink . . . you get the idea.

      Delete
    4. You know I get the idea. When I was a teen I sure did have a crush on her. Blue would've looked good on her too. You get the idea.

  9. That's such a fine tribute to a special person! Moms deserve the best and rightly so here! You've given all and then some! Wonderful write Blue!

  11. What a nice tribute. I lost my own mom close to Christmas in 2009. Still miss her, of course.

    1. I'm sorry to hear that, Mr. Silver Fox. Of course you still miss her. I'm never amused by people who feel there should be an expiry date on missing someone they themselves don't love. Do you know what I mean? Thanks for stopping by.

  12. Aww! Very sweet tribute, Blue.

  13. Unfortunately, my mom has been MIA most of my life. She physically is still here but she left a long time ago. Literally, left the family. But I attribute to the fact that she had a rough childhood. Anywho--God blessed me with a wonderful stepmomma and stepgrandmomma and a half-sister. I am closer to them than I am my own blood relatives. And God has been sure that there has always been an older female in my life to be there when I needed advice and directions. I lost one of my best friends (age 95-years of age) two years ago.

    I find myself now "mothering" those whom are orphaned so to speak not physically but emotionally. I do believe it is my role in life. I am have been taken care of myself since 5-years of age. I do believe God made sure I was born "an old soul" because of what my circumstances were going to be. My dad was in place and he took care of me to the best of his ability but there's nothing like a mom. Good friends--I have always been blessed with good friends.

    Happy Mother's Day to ur mommie too.

    Blue one of my favorite colors.

    1. That's quite a story, Miss Gumshoe Marples, but I'm glad to hear you were lucky to have a loving stepmom and stepgranny. I myself have been blessed with a very youthful soul or mind. It does make one vulnerable and sometimes the target of ridicule, but I'm also blessed in many ways, one of which is I've got a loving mom, not to mention a bunch of reliable friends.

  17. Beautifully put! I often read posts from people who are mourning the loss of their moms and I always tell myself I need to spend more time with my mom. I used to go to lunch with her every day but now that I work from home, I just have lunch a couple of times a week with her now.

    1. Why, thank you, Stephanie. How are you today on this year's Mom's Day? I'm sure your Mom wouldn't mind seeing her daughter a bit more often, but I bet she knows you'd never take her for granted. A couple of times a week... that's not a bad deal at all. My Mom would definitely sign up for it, I tell yah.

  19. Very beautiful poem for your mama Blue! My mom isn't perfect. Sometimes I wonder what the hell was she thinking when she made some of her parenting decisions. But the past is the past and I do think that she always had our best interests in mind. I am glad that we have Mother's Day here, because it's the one day where all of her selfish kids actually take a day to recognize all she has done for us. I hope you had a lovely day with your mother today Blue!

    1. It only goes to show that even mommas are human beings. I once thought they were angels. What was I thinking? Good to hear the past is the past but still...if I had a time-machine.... Are you telling me you're a selfish kid? You? Theresa "Mixed Nuts" Mahoney? No way.

      Thanks, I had a great afternoon in Blue Mom's cave.
