With the end of summer, and getting everyone ready to go back to school, time has just seemed to get away from me.
I was just getting ready to pick up the phone and give them a call when the phone rang. My Mom was on the other end of the line asking when I might be coming by with the kids? We made plans for me to drive out and see them today after the kids morning dentist appointment.
Mom was very excited and said "You'll bring books right"?
She goes on to explain that while she is really looking forward to seeing me, she had hoped I had a few new books to pass along her way. It seems she had nothing to read.
My parents don't have a library close by so over the past few years I have become my Mom's lending tree. I try and keep her supplied in books. Obviously, I had fallen down on the job and she was having literary withdrawals.
I guess the apple really doesn't fall to far from the tree.
My mom loves reading and baseball. If the Dodgers are playing a game DO NOT EVEN CONSIDER CALLING HER. She may or may not pick up the phone and if she does she wants you to get right to the point. If the game is not on TV she listens to it on the radio.
As you can see my entire family takes the game of Baseball to an all new obsessive level.
Well, I'm off to search for books.
Have a great Wednesday.
