    Re: how did you thank your mother???

    Well, that brought a tear to the eye. Happy mother's day to all the moms out there (Mother's Day in the U.S. was back in May, but it never hurts to thank Mom again!)

    On a happier note, here are some things my mother taught me:

    My mother taught me TO APPRECIATE A JOB WELL DONE...
    "If you're going kill each other, do it outside - I just finished cleaning!"

    My mother taught me RELIGION...
    "You better pray that will come out of the carpet."

    My mother taught me about TIME TRAVEL...
    "If you don't straighten up, I'm going to knock you into the middle of next week!"

    My mother taught me LOGIC...
    "Because I said so, that's why."

    My mother taught me LOGIC... #2
    "If you fall out of that swing and break your neck, you're not going to the store with me."
