Mother’s Day

Squirrel Chairs

The picture you see above are squirrel chairs. The idea is that the squirrels sit and eat the cobs of corn impaled on the chairs (the corn is impaled not the squirrels). The intent of such an idea is apparently to keep squirrels away from bird feeders by giving them their own food. Apeasement policies aside, this is a weird idea, right? It’s an idea that makes sense and makes no sense at the same time. This is the brainchild of my mother, the woman who birthed me and raised me. I’m not kidding, a grown adult thought of using this invention (and somebody invented it but let’s set that aside).

My mom is an incredibly intelligent woman and she’s one of the nicest people I have ever known. I didn’t show you this picture to ridicule my mother or illustrate a flaw. I’m showing you this picture because it always makes me laugh. My mom was a lawyer and is now a judge and proud mother of three boys. She has several college degrees on top of high school and trade school. She’s Superwoman in my eyes.

She’s also the woman who taught us how to howl at the full moon regardless of what the neighbors might think. She obsessively plays Mahjong to the point that it’s become a running joke. She came north from South Carolina and didn’t get married when everybody else was. She became a lawyer at a time when women in the profession were called Lady Lawyers as if it was an oddity for a female to practice law.

On this Mothers Day, this is just a little note about my mother because I get a kick out of her and I love her.
