It’s Mothers Day so we’ll stay away from all the political stuff and talk about Mothers. For those of us whose Mother is no longer physically with us days like this remind us of what they did for us to get us to this point. I’ve always said this I’m far from a perfect human being but whatever good there is to found in me I owe to my Mom. My body Flounder was an orphan I’ve never been able to find out what happened to her. On this day he keeps an eye on my wife I’m not sure why. My Mom has been gone for a long while, but when things are getting screwed up or I’ve accomplished something special I find myself first reaching for the phone then after I realize she’s not going to be there I feel an emptiness for a few seconds then I just smile and know she knows. I don’t know if others go through this or not if you do don’t worry your normal. Mothers always see you as a success even if you don’t feel that way. Mothers never let you see the worry when you take your first step or date your first girl or take the car for the first time. I think being a Mother must be the most stressful job in the world. I’m sitting here writing this and hoping I didn’t cause my mother that much worry and that she can see that I did learn those things she was trying to tell me. I wish my buddy Flounder had been able to experience his mother growing up. Well before I start crying and ramble on I’ll just say this is Flounder and Fats saying CIAO from Medellin, Colombia.
