mothers day cards

i can’t buy another mothers day card.
mom never believes them anyway—not the way my brothers and i tortured her during our uninformative years.
so i give her signed photos of rock hudson instead.
they seem to put a hop in her step and a twinkle in her eye for some unexplainable reason.
and don't worry, i have no intention of telling her ... well, you know ... about which side of the toast the rock buttered.

I don't care what side Rock butters his toast. I'm with Bobbi. He's the most handsome man I've ever seen. My daughter thinks so too. So, regardless of his..uh..."toast"...he has that classic handsome male appeal that is multi-generational. Can't wait 'til I show my granddaughters a picture of him to see what they think.
