From my mom:
What a great story and the way you told it is priceless. So my birthday was memorable to so many people for different reasons. Dad toasted me on Saturday night and it was so complimentary that it made Lucy cry. It's taken 28 years but he's coming around. It's funny but it took Zayde 68 years to realize he should have been more patient with Bobbe. I love you for your efforts and thoughts and hope we can celebrate many more birthdays together. It is one of the best perks having you living here in Tampa. I could not appreciate it so many years ago when I left Montreal to come to Florida, how devastated my mother was at my moving so far away. But I can certainly relate to it today. Thanks again for all you and Tom did.
Love ya mum
From a new friend:
Dear Betty Crocker,
I reviewed your e-mail. As I read over your rather vulgar description of your unfortunate chain of events, it is no wonder that our school district red flagged this email as "Profanity". Upon further perusal, I began to read your legal disclaimer printed at the end of your 'spoiled brat' tirade. "If the reader of this message is not the intended recipient.... you are hereby notified that any review, dissemination, distribution or copying of this message is strictly prohibited". Well, guess what? I have reviewed, disseminated, distributed, copied and forwarded your email to everyone I know!! We have laughed all day ! Give up the Law and write books (but perhaps not childrens books). I love your mom - she keeps me sane some days. And one more thing, Tom would have eaten that cake even if it tasted like mulch after the tantrum you pulled--that man's a keeper !
Hope to "Meet the Author" someday !
