Not “Mom,” But Something Close

I’m going to go ahead and lower expectations for my community column which will appear in this Sunday’s Huntsville Times. I know that many will be expecting a Mother’s Day Special, but it ain’t happening. Sorry.

Here’s the truth: When I was coming up with a topic for this month, I completely forgot that my column would appear on Mother’s Day. In fact, I didn’t realize it was this Sunday until, oh, about 3 days ago (and my deadline was a week ago Thursday).

If you’re looking for an ode to get you in the mood for honoring your favorite mama, then you’re barking up the wrong tree, my precious coon dogs. I suggest you check out Garrison Keillor instead. Someday, when I grow up, I want to write like that man.

So what did I write about? I’ll give you a hint:

And they’ll watch the game and it’ll be as if they dipped themselves in magic waters. The memories will be so thick they’ll have to brush them away from their faces.

If you remember where that line came from, then you’ll be one step closer to figuring it out.

Boom-de-yada, baby. And have a great weekend.

    Wanna play some catch?

    Oh man, oh man, oh man. Are you in trouble. Or maybe people will just see you as anti-affirmative action.

    Not to be too picky, but I think it was “Do you wanna have a catch?”

    Trouble in Rocket City? Hopefully not.
