Sometimes when one looks at all sides of an issue, one side seems to stick out. That was verly likely the case for Scott Gregory.

My scoop of Mother's Day raspberry ice cream?

May 18, 2012

First of all, I forgot to wish my mother, JoAnn Mattox, and my wife, Jenny, a Happy Mother's Day last week. For some strange reason, I thought Mother's Day was this Sunday instead of last Sunday — I was a week behind.
Sometimes I wonder if my elevator goes all the way to the penthouse? Anyway, Happy Belated Mother's Day, ladies.
FYI — I now keep a huge calendar on the kitchen table, and write everything down so I just don't forget anything any more.
