Dear Dolores,

Isn't it interesting that a day of celebrating mothers created by a greeting card company has become more than just a card? Among humorists in All things Alamo & Pop(u)lar, we are discussing appropriate recognition of mothers.

As I referred to my mother, Marian, of the vaudeville circuits of the 1920's, I focused on a round of applause and celebration of the outrageous humor we shared. It seems we all agreed that mothers should have a special outing with most recommending a wine tour and, as punishment, the grown children would be the designated drivers.

As we concluded our zany review, we were going to add a ladder to the old Alamo Post Office, now a shoe repair with a horse on top, and offer free pictures of Mom astride the horse. If Mom happens to be in Willimantic CT, we can offer a picture on top a large copper frog.

Lovely thoughts, right?
