Mama Knows Best - Jan 2018

Dear Mama,
Do you like fruitcake? Hungry at the Holidays

I like fruitcake about as much as like the President. I’d rather eat Eunice’s beef stew than fruitcake and even look at Darth Cheeto!

Do you think all this gun violence will ever end? Worried

All we can do is hope or pray if you’re religious. Unless changes are made I am afraid it is going to continue. We need to change laws not just for guns, but mental health as well. Until then we can hope that love wins!

What is the deal with all these Hollywood people getting in trouble for sexual harassment?  Not signed

This is what happens when certain men are given to much power. Just look at our leader and the things he said in that locker room. Some people are just pigs! Good Lord, I would have slapped the crap out of any one of them if they had tried or said anything inappropriate to me! My gosh, even my own kids know not to behave like that! Even Eunice! Bubba bring me a beer!

Dear Mama,
What are your goals for the New Year? Old acquaintances

Iola, I know you wrote this damn question, neighbor! I can tell you one of them is not to be nicer to my neighbor! Stick that in your pink tutu, Iola! I am too damn old to make goals I know I won’t keep. I will yell more and drink beer! I know I can keep those goals!!

    I hope everyone had a Merry Christmas and I hope you have a Happy New Year in 2018! l


Recipe For Receiving a Fruitcake:

1. Act surprised and pretend you like the gift. Don’t overdo it.

2. Take it home and pretend to taste it so if the gift giver asks you can have a nice response.

3. If you have a person on your Christmas list you are not fond of re-gift the fruitcake.

4. If above step does not apply throw the damn thing in the trash!
