10 Things I learned from my mother

Happy Mother’s Day to all!

This is my pretty, Irish mother. She taught me many things.
About karma….
1. Never speak ill of the dead.
2. Never kill a spider in the house.
About nutrition….
3. Fish is brain food. (She knew this 50 years ago. Why is it in the news only recently?)
4. Carrots are good for your eyes.
Politics…
5. Never wear orange on St. Patrick’s Day. (If you are Irish, I think you know where she was coming from on this.)
Sex education….
6. Any man or boy will say or do anything to get into your knickers.
7. Any woman can look good on her back. It takes a real woman to pull off brilliance the rest of the time.
On growing old.
8. Red heads do not grey gracefully.
9. If you are confused…just smile!
10. I will always love you.

If your mother is still living, tell her you love her every chance you get. If your mother has passed, be thankful for the times she was your biggest fan, the times she fought to protect you, the times she told you what was right and what was wrong.

Thanks Mom.

A writer’s day

Boats in Portmagee harbor, Portmagee, Co. Kerry, Ireland

I’ve been “mind surfing” lately. My muse can’t settle on a story. I’ve two books half written and keep going back and forth from one to the other. Today I had a plan…but mid-cappucino my plan changed. I’m working on a romantic comedy titled Rosy Again. It’s fun…as a comedy certainly should be! So, if you like Irish stories, tales of the sea, quirky and free spirited characters and a twist of an ending…keep watching here for my progress on Rosy Again.
