My friend Lora at LitDiva does a nifty thing each month called Memos that I find fun and charming and witty. I thought I’d give it a try here. So, with a nod to LitDiva, here goes.
Dear Mother Nature,
I’m over the drought and the heat wave. The lake water was 90 degrees this weekend—really too warm to be all the refreshing. Temps in 100s and 90s can stop now.
Love, love your Spring Valley Glucosamine/Chondroitin orange creme chews. Ever since I started using them, my arthritic knees and hips actually move immediately when I rise from a seated position instead of having to straighten slowly before I take a step. These things rock!
With great agility and very little creaking,
Watched Mama Mia this past weekend and it’s even better watching it up at the lake with good friends, but now I have the music stuck in my head. Pierce Brosnan’s voice is an earworm singing “When All Is Said and Done.” He won’t shut up!

Dear Little Ants in My Kitchen,
WTF??! Where did you come from and why are you on my counter top? Go away this instant! You’re icky and I don’t like you.
We can’t wait to meet you! We’ll be there soon, and Pops and I plan to spend a week simply passing you back and forth. Get ready for massive hugs and kisses and stories and yes, I’ll admit it, lots of tears of joy.
