More on Mom


Since Mom's been such a popular part of my blog, I figured I'd set aside a special page, just for links to posts/info relating to her. (I'll still post them on my home page, but will also put them here.) Who knows? Maybe I'll even let her guest post one day! (But that would be dangerous; give this woman a stage, and she can get pretty crazy.) Let's just take baby steps for now...

Here are Half-Past Kissin' Time posts about my mom, Elsie, with tags in parentheses and stars on my personal favorites. Please note that many of these posts have lost their comments (I don't know how to retrieve them!)
