Valerie wrote this one in '09.....Hilarious, and still relevant.....

He didn't like the casserole
And he didn't like my cake.
He said my biscuits were too hard,
And very much unlike the ones,
His mother used to make.

I didn't perk the coffee right,
He didn't like the stew.
I surely didn't mend his socks
The way his mother used to do.

I pondered for an answer,
I was looking for a clue.
Then I smacked the shit out of him...

Just like his mother used to do.

It sound to me like in a Polygamous home. Where one woman ( fearless ) dies and leave her children behind. Valerie thanks. Its makes me rethinks if i want to still stay in roots with the old African tradition ONE MAN MORE WOMEN.
Love it

Mother always knows best. Hilarious write Walt. My mother always said,"go pick a switch". That's all I need say even today with my adult children.
Missed you.

an attitude adjustment of the proper quantity it would seem -- from a guy's perspective, not many women they meet in their lives, ever measure up to the standard of their mom -- peace and love my friend -- Jon Michael
