Special mention

Special mention to my mother. I visited the place where her ashes reside and as always, the tears fell down my face. I miss her voice and presence. She'd have a lot to say or perhaps sigh about right now with the way things are going on and she'd probably escape the day to day by losing herself in some football on sundays and a good game of bingo. I thought I might keep up her tradition of writing and logging down all the football scores each weekend but it's just not in me. I have patience for some things but not all things. She kept the scores of every game since the mid seventies and her last time tracking the scores was last year. Anyway, last weekend I was happy to see the plaque on the wall with my mother's name. It took a while for them to do it but it's there now. As Forrest Gump would say "that's all I have to say about that..." for now anyway... God Bless my mom...
