“She taught me to always be an independent person — how to make it on my own and be my own person.”

“She clipped our wings before we left the nest so we knew how that felt. We had an honest relationship and talked a lot.”

In hindsight, my experiences with my mother had me putting women on a pedestal.

My experiences with mothers, since, has left me somewhat more pedestrian.

Bacon, eggs over easy, and hashbrowns w/ toast and coffee. That start to the day makes it go swimmingly.

She taught me to cook and clean and do my own laundry and taught me the value of education. Women are freaked out when I tell them not to mess with my dirty clothes cause I take care of that myself.

BTW, the slabs are jumping in the boat at Clinton.

She created me. She has helped me numerous times in my life when I thought I was going to fall apart. She never expects me to explain myself or justify my decisions. She supports me. And she encourages me to figure life out on my own, but is there when I need her.

best mom ever.

Just kidding.

Too big of hurry to account for all the positive ways she influenced me and all the insane ways as well..... But I like my crazy side so that is a positive as well.

Love ya Ma......!

Mothers milk contains 2-Arachidonoylglycerol, an endocannabinoid that stimulates the same CB1 cannabinoid receptors as marijuana.

From a very young age and living near the coast and numerous lakes, we swam constantly in the summer. I never had a fear of, but yet a healthy respect for water. I know some bass tournament fisherman who if tossed in the water, would go straight to the bottom. I know many adults who are absolutely terrified of the water. Lots of good memories of Misquamicut beach in Rhode Island and South Branch lake in Maine.

She let's me and Indyan stay in the basement when we get crazy from living alone. Then eventually we venture back out.

My mother was not okay. She taught me I was stupid, physically inept, and to not trust myself and not to trust my instincts. This has made for a difficult life.

One time I was looking through the freezer and I found this old piece of cake and a ziploc labeled "Psycho's Placenta."

There's two things i won't eat at her house, cake and casserole.
