"If You Give Mom a Muffin"

If you give a mom a muffin,
She'll want a cup of coffee to go with it.
She'll pour herself some.
Her three-year-old will spill the coffee.
She'll wipe it up.
Wiping the floor, she'll find dirty socks.
She'll remember she has to do laundry.
When she puts the laundry in the washer,
She'll trip over boots and bump into the freezer.
Bumping into the freezer will remind her
she has to plan for supper.
She will get out a pound of hamburger.
She'll look for her cookbook
("101 Things To Do With a Pound of Hamburger").
The cookbook is setting under a pile of mail.
She will see the phone bill, which is due tomorrow.
She will look for her checkbook.
The checkbook is in her purse
that is being dumped out by her two-year-old.
She'll smell something funny.
She'll change the two-year-old's diaper.
While she is changing the diaper, the phone will ring.
Her five-year-old will answer and hang up.
She'll remember she wants to phone a friend for coffee.
Thinking of coffee will remind her
that she was going to have a cup.
And chances are...If she has a cup of coffee,
Her kids will have eaten the muffin that went with it.

Susan, This made me think of you.. Didn't you and Amy go see him perform last spring?

Pete Seeger has died at age 94. Along with writing songs that have become iconic and at the soul of the American folk music movement, Pete was a life-long activist and withstood being blacklisted to hold his place as a bonafide legend. Listen to Pete do what he love best, lead an audience in song at the 50th Newport Folk Festival.

Good Morning Sandy and thanks for the start.

I know you say you don't have a good memory, but you do ok :)

Yes, we saw him and his sister Peggy at Proctors theater in NY.
I bought tix on stub hub and didn't realize we had front row seats until we got there.
Glad we saw him...

It's funny how my memory works now..
I spent 30 min. this evening trying to ask my son about this actor..
I could remember what he looked like, what movies he had been in,
but for the life of me I could not remember his name or the name of the movies...
I told Chris the black guy.... He told me I was being racist and vague.

Posted on Jan 28, 2014 3:32:57 AM PST
Oh, The actor I was trying to remember was Eddie Murphy.

The Ragtime Kid: A Ragtime Mystery (Ragtime Mystery Trilogy)
Brun Campbell, a 15-year-old piano-playing fool, hears Scott Joplin's "Maple Leaf Rag" played one 1898 afternoon in Oklahoma City. It's destiny calling. Asking for ragtime lessons, he's told, "No, Ragtime is colored music." So Brun runs away from the family farm to Sedalia, Missouri, to persuade Joplin to take him on as a pupil. What Brun doesn't expect is to trip over the body of a young woman. He thoughtlessly picks up a couple of items before he rushes away from the murder scene.

When Edward Fitzgerald, a man who befriended Brun his first night in town, is arrested for the woman's murder, Brun is certain he's innocent. But if the boy shows anyone the things he pocketed at the scene-things he now knows belonged to Scott Joplin-he'll point the finger at the composer...and himself.
Brun decides to get Fitzgerald, Joplin, and himself off the hook by finding the real killer, but for that he eventually needs some help from Dr. Overstreet, the alcoholic town mayor; and John Stark, a man pushing sixty, who's been employing Brun at his music store.

Sedalia is rife with suspects, some of them opportunists bent on stealing Joplin's music. And then there are the girls and women-mysteries to Brun-like a teenager seized with religious fever, a couple of mischievous prostitutes, and an attractive, ambitious young woman with a hint of scarlet in her past, who further complicate his pursuit of the killer.

Stopping in Lonely Places (Mahoney and Me Mystery Series) by Mary Lee Tiernan

An author departs in her RV on a leisurely book signing tour. A stop for lunch at an isolated spot along the road changes her life when a robber pulls up behind her van and threatens her. A stray border collie intervenes and scares off the aggressor. Of course, she can't leave the dog behind after he saved her, and the collie eagerly accepts her invitation to jump in the van. That chance encounter with the robber leads to his pursuit of her for reasons she doesn't understand. When she meets Mahoney, the detective assigned to her case, sparks fly between them.

So glad you got to see him too - sad news but all in all he did have quite some life.
Hope you are not working too hard :-)

Thanks for starting....stay warm! The poem was cute and rang true.

Everything is shut down in Pittsburgh schools open or garbage pick-up. It is so cold!

I loved the photo of baby covered with kisses......he even looked a lot like my L. I kiss him constantly, it's like a reflex and he usually has red marks on his face. It looks like he bumped himself or has skin irritation, but it's just me kissing him!! 💕

Good morning Sandy!

Thanks for the start. Love the piece about mom and muffins. Story of my life! LOL

My memory has been like yours for years. It's very aggravating. I once heard on the radio that when that happens you should stop, ask yourself "what's my name" and answer yourself. Afterwards you should be able to remember what you were struggling with. It's never worked for me but...

"I used to have a memory like a steel trap. I could remember everything down to the most minute detail. However, in recent years rust has accumulated in certain spots creating tiny holes where memories leak out." - Lolita Acevedo

Morning guys, thanks for the start Sandy! That Mom poem, well, yep, me when the boys were little. Unfortunately, yep, me most days now. Lol! And can't even blame it on kids.

Hi everybody. :) It finally decided to snow a little here. 13 degrees, with a couple of inches of snow forecast. Wish it could snow without the biting cold. :) Everyone stay safe and warm.
