A Few Things You Should Know About My Mother


Here a few things you should know about my mother, in no particular order….


First – She is as agile as a mountain goat.  She can hike through canyons effortlessly just to show up her granddaughters.


And she always makes a fashion statement. I think the pink and the orange really work.

Second – She can out cook The Pioneer Women any day of the week, with her eyes closed (sorry Ree).



Third – She could give any Nascar driver a run for their money and has been known to drive the wheels right off of a variety of vehicles – quite literally.


Fourth – She can cowboy and work cattle with the best of them.  And sometimes better than the best of them because she has more patience.

Fifth – She can doctor just about any injury to people or livestock.  As Alex said the other day after Mom fixed up her toe, “Your just as good as a Doctor Grammy, your Doctor Grammy!”


Six – She can kayak.  She can’t swim but she can kayak, which now that I think about it may have some potential pitfalls….

Seven –  She is excellent at interior design, specializing in the color purple.





Eight – Apparently she neither too old nor too mature to start a food fight.


Nine – She takes rock band seriously.

Ten – She is just hands down the best Grammy ever.

Eleven – She is more than Tough Enough.  Thank goodness!  Because we would be lost without her!



Happy Birthday Mom!
