Mum's Day

So here is an opportunity to bring a tear of joy to the eye of the old lady in the rocking chair: a nice little illustrated memoir of the life of a mother from another age. It's better than chocolate or roses, since it will last 'way beyond the second Sunday in May. She can leaf through its pages when lonely, sigh over the quaintness of another time and place. I'm tellin' ya, it's a fine gift. Would I lie?

By the way, what do you think about the "Three Cups of Tea" scandal? I can guarantee that every word in MY book is the absolute truth. It's called "May: A New England Childhood." and you can go to, click on the Bookstore tab and type in that name, or my name. Very easy and they ship fast, so it will be ready for the big day. If you want to throw in a few chocolates and a rose or two well, that's okay. Or if you're a mother and would like o gift yourself,m , hey, do it.

I want to order a heap of these for various friends scattered about the globe, and have them sent to your place to be autographed. I'll take it from there when I come in a few weeks. Geht das? Bis bald!
