End of the Larry King Era

Mom loved Larry King. Until macular degeneration left her nearly blind at age 97, she watched him faithfully. She loved the way he dressed. One Christmas she asked me to buy a shirt and a tie for her to give to Phil. I didn't buy the tie, because Phil rarely wears them.  I bought him a nice flannel shirt, his winter work uniform.

Mom took one look at the shirt and sighed with disappointment. "I wanted him to start dressing up more for work. He should wear shirts and ties like Larry King." Well, even if I'd understood what she wanted in the first place, it was never gonna happen.

LOL!

I had a dream about you last night!

We met in person and you had a son in the dream. He was telling us that just because we read each
other's blog it did not mean we were friends. I begged to differ.

Anyway, nice to see u in my dreams!
