When Mom has a date!

Here's the thing. My mom has been

widowed for ten years. In that time,

she has never gone on a date. No, not

even one. You see my dad, Charlie

Cooper, was always the life of the

party, and there was not a day in their

married life that he didn't make my

mom laugh. When his cigar loving

size twelves stomped off to the big

steakhouse in the sky, well, he was

a tough act to follow.

Now, I know I should be happy for her, but I can't help feeling like every worried

parent when their daughter goes on her first date. Is there a man good enough

for my mom? Not hardly.
Uh oh, mom just called me from her date. Slight problem -- he's dead!

  1. That's not a good start to a date.

  2. Gosh, couldn't he just tell her she's not his type?! Lol I have Buttercream Bump Off on pre-order woohoo! Btw, the recipe for the Death By Chocolate Cupcakes is OUTSTANDING! (Sprinkled With Murder)

  3. Oh, no, mom's not having much luck. I would imagine you'd better find out who did it. Just to help mom out. Otherwise she might not get back on the saddle...

  4. Sounds like my last date.

  5. Hopefully this doesn't throw her off dating...{HUGS} to Mom and double {HUGS} to you!

  6. Gosh, I hate it when that happens. Luckily, you'll be there to help out when it really counts. Gotta love daughters.
