Mother's Day Weekend

This was my kind of Mother's Day. It really began on Saturday with our oldest son's graduation from the University of Georgia. Such a wonderful accomplishment, although I'm pretty sure it was only last week that he was in kindergarten. Anyway, on Sunday after church, the new college grad came over and our family ordered Chinese take-out to eat at home. (I'm just as happy with this plan as going to a fancy restaurant.) It was a fun day just sitting around, laughing and laughing. We also watched The Sandlot, a movie my kids grew up watching; we reminisced and laughed and laughed some more. Then my unofficial Mother's Day gift was presented with great pomp and circumstance, amid raucous hoots and guffaws. The Grad gave it to me in homage to my blog post/tribute to a famous has-been rock star. Some of you may remember this post too. It's the most ridiculous video I've seen in a long while. . . the stuff of nightmares.





Seems the Grad discovered this "treasure" at a local thrift store and instantly knew I needed it for my nightmares CD collection. (Incidentally, yes, he found it while shopping at a thrift store; what a smart shopper-- that business degree is already proving to be a wise investment. :) The super-wide shoulders and color of the suit is classic 80's, but what's up with the no-shirt look?? We listened to some of this "vintage" CD and I'm fairly certain it was not nominated for a Grammy, even if it was recorded in the 80's.

As I said before, someone should have definitely hassled the Hoff. . . I'm just sayin'. . .

Glad you had such a nice Mother's Day, Cathy. That CD is definitely a find. You may want to hold on to that one in case there's a big Hoff comeback. lol Wow, his outfit is really, really hideous.
Your son must have a wicked sense of humor. :)
