Murdo Girl…The call girls

I know the Little Murdo Girl and her brother Billy, really love their Mom. Billy took her to the races for Mother’s Day, but really, what could be better than a heartfelt poem from your daughter?


Hi Mom, I called to…Mary is that you?

Yes Mom, I want to…I called Ella today. I had some “news” to tell. To get a word in edgewise, I really had to yell!

Well, Mom how long…Oh, we talked an hour, and it was on my dime. If she wants to talk again, she’ll have to call next time.

So, Mom…I’d tell you what she said, but it was blah, blah, blah. If you really want the truth, I forgot it, ha, ha, ha.

I only have a minute Mo…I went shopping with my coupons. I thought I’d save a ton. They told me they were all expired, no more two for one. Say, last time I saw you, I was constipated. Did I tell you aloe vera juice is very overrated? I use Metamucil now, two teaspoons to a cup. You should try it dear, you really sound bound up.

I have a question Mo…I have a tickle in my throat. I’m sure that I’ll start coughin. It’s been fun catching up. You should call more often.

I’ve been trying to reach you Mom, but it’s been really hard….

Oh never mind, this Mother’s Day, I’ll just send a card.

I heard her hang the phone up. She was in a tizzy.

I knew, if I called back again, the line would still be busy.

She’d be calling sister Ella, so they can talk in rhymes.

I know for sure that every day, they talk at least 3 times.



Ella and Loretta Sanderson…sisters and friends

    Ha. No wonder you love blogging, Mary No one can interrupt you! Right after I asked if you had Alan Rada’s contact information, I got an email from someone else that had sent him an email as well, so his address was on the “send to” list. Someone higher up in the cyber world loves me! I sent him and email and I’ve heard back so need to send him that photo. I’ll send it to you, too. Perhaps I’ll do a blog on the controversial boy-girl party of the year where it was taken!

      I don’t know I if Allen has read my blogs about Marlene. Can I trust the WordPress stats? If they’re true, not very many readers comment. I’m just getting a good start on your blog Judy. Love the photography as well as the writing.

    Hilarious and true! Our Moms were characters! They were so concerned about long distance charges when calling that the one calling felt entitled to do most all the talking!!
