Happy Mother's Day

Since I wasn't on the air until late last night, I wanted to take this time to wish my mom a belated happy Mother's Day. I did get to see her yesterday, but just wanted to make sure that she knew how important she is to me. My dad worked a lot, so my mom did most of the raising of me and my siblings. She could be both the good cop and the bad cop when needed. There were numerous times she threatened to get out the paddle to use on my brothers and me when we were roughhousing a little too much (I don't recall her ever using it. It was the threat that made us quit!). My mom kept trying to connect with me in my teenage years. I remember sitting in the basement, shooting pool and listening to Danzig. My mom came downstairs, heard it, and trying to be cool, asked if it was Billy Idol. I didn't have the heart to tell her it wasn't. I just went with it. All these years later, I can tell her it was Danzig. I would never sit around listening to Billy Idol! My mom has always been there in any hard times and I am grateful for that. Thank you Mom for all that you do and I hope you had a great Mother's Day!
