Mothers and Other Inventions
Today is a Capitalist Invention disguised as an American Holiday to guilt us into treating our mothers, our daughters and the female life bearers special, which leads many to over compensate for a lack of sensitivity with gifts. Of course, Lady Allwinky always reminds me that everyday should be Mother's Day! And, she is correct. Of course, when I think of Mothers and Inventions...I think of Frank Zappa and the Mother's of Invention...FREAK OUT! It's in stereo!
My latest invention for Mother's Day is a hand painted, Monkey Man bejeweled planter. I have to confess that once I finished, I was tempted to plug the hole in the bottom and use it as my new Party Mug! Fit for a Queen!
And here is her Royal Highness of Warrick with our Princess on the deck of our Royal Yacht. OK, it was a Royal Caribbean Ship, but I was always able to function very well in fantasy land! Today, Lady Maegan gives her mother the best present of all...Graduating from University! At 3 p.m. this afternoon, she walks to receive her Bachelor of Arts in Advertising and Communications degree...Summa Cume Laude non the less. Lady Maegan becomes only the second Wells on this side of the pond to earn a college degree...yours truly being the first. She's moving on to St. Louis University for a Masters in Business Communications this fall.
So, remember today to honor your mother, love your wife, shag your lover...and in the words of John Mayer, "Fathers be good to your daughters...for daughters will love like you do!" But, beware of the Capitalist Hoards...because as Frank and the Mother's say, "We're only in it for the money!"
Sir Hook the MI5 of Warrick
