Can You Relate?

Momma always told me there’d be phases like this: the wild toddler phase, the eye roll phase, the defining-relationships, managing-menopause and losing-my-mind phases. Can you relate? Then this blog’s for you.

Netted from years of newspaper columns and personal essays, my stories cover the phases of life  where the ability to smile can be a sanity saver. I may be a writer with a fishy last name, but my tales are true (mostly).

I invite you to jump right in and catch some laughs.
