A Lanyard for my Mother

I came across this recording a good while ago, and wanted to reserve it for this special Mother’s Day Weekend.

Happy Mother’s Day, Mom. I love you!

  1. Boy, I’m on a roll. Apparantly if you get one comment from me you get 10.

    I LOVED this clip! Not only did you introduce me to someone new, I now feel I need to go check out more of his work. (kind of Sedaris-esque, who I LOVE!)

    And as a mother of five, I have received PLENTY of lanyards, this gave a whole new meaning to them. Thank You.
