The Chow Nation went down to the greenhouse last Friday and got a huge Mother's Day tomato. I said, "Chows! Aren't ya jumping the gun? Mother's Day isn't for another week!" They replied, "Grandma, mind your own business. Everything will be gone after this weekend; we are discriminating dogs and just any old thing will not do for us. Now act like a lady and say 'thank you'.
So thank you I said and began to puzzle where I would put this gimondo tomato with little green tomatoes on it already. Those darn Chows. They are awful nice.
And today, I got two other Mother's Day greetings. It's early! First, I was delighted to hear from my sweet goddaughter in Kennilworth, Illinois, who never forgets me and in fact, sent wonderful flowers to The 'Kan here for Easter when I was at the Cape. sigh. She is SO nice.
Here's the question? Why am I so lucky? This I do not know.
And here's the other Mother's Day greeting I received today; reminded me soooo much of ... well, gosh. It's just real familiar. You know, besides flowers, making me laugh is my all-time favorite gift.
