I'm Just Saying

Just can’t resist

It sits staring down at me from the top of the refrigerator, smug in its power, attractive in its red and black, Scottish plaid, container:

The most enormous tin of Walker’s ‘Premium Short Bread Collection,’ pure butter cookies you’ve ever seen.

Evidently, she kept cats

My eldest brother is currently traveling through England to visit and document my mother’s side of the family. It’s been an interesting trip, via emailed photographs, of familial homes both impressive and modest, from Devon, the original homestead, now in ruins, all the way to Northumberland and South Shields.

Give us something realistic

My mother once told me, while vigorously polishing the silver, that when she had last traveled to England to visit her own mother, she had watched her settle down upon the sofa and was horrified to hear her remark, with much feeling: “A nice cup of tea and something good on the telly. What more could one want?”

Remembering Robin Williams

Pam Stone's picture

In the past week I’ve been asked if I knew Robin Williams.

No.

Did I work with him? Yes. Have I been to his home for a meal? Yes. Bowling? Yes. Did I drop him off at places in my old, banger car so he wouldn’t be followed and recognized? Yes.
