The Adversary

Mothers are hardest to forgive.

Life is the fruit they long to hand you,

Ripe on a plate.  And while you live,

Relentlessly they understand you.

Phyllis McGinley
American writer/poet
1905 - 1978


  1. Do you own that book? Looks like a good read! :)

  2. I do! I *gave* it to BaaBee for Mother's Day last year.

    It complete a set by the same authors who previously covered Southern weddings and funerals.

    They are glorified cookbooks: recipes with commentary. Not fine dining, but definitely grains of salt (truth) mixed with the lies (hyperbole).

    Loved the Vodka Cake..... served it with raspberry sherbert.
