    Bonnie: When I was young always figured my parents just wanted to teach me right from wrong which they did but as life went on and I got out on my own things changed in a hurry wasn't someone there to wipe my nose so to speak. I was now the adult married and in the Air Force and as I said I learned over the years I had some very good guidance in how to make it in life. My Mom taught me how to take care of myself once on my own, cooking, laundry, ironing, sure glad I paid attention sure has come in handy over the years. Mom taught me alot and so did Dad as a teenage that thought he had better things to do LOL. Anyway both my parents are gone but I still know the lessons I learned in those younger days of my life. Nice post, more kids sure learn what is coming in the real world and some do.

    Messed up another sentence, not out of line with me. LOL Last sentence should have read: Nice post, more kids surely need to learn more at home to see what is coming in the real world and some do.

  • Bonnie, your mother is indeed a remarkable woman, who, in turn, raised another remarkable woman and mother. While I don't recall you ever fixing fish sticks and jello in the past 20-plus years, you learned her lessons well. I'm thankful that you are my companion in life. (yes, I read all your blogs)

  • Thank you. I think your mother raised a pretty remarkable man.
