Bob’s Annual Mother’s Day Tribute – Don’t Forget Your Mother

Posted in Opinion, Review with tags , , , , , , on May 11, 2018 by segarini

Once again, May brings Mother’s Day, and Hallmark Holiday or not, it is a day of sadness, fondness, and joy that I look forward to every year. With rare exception, a mother spends her life protecting, encouraging, and informing yours. She is the first defense against that which could harm you, and the last person to judge or abandon you. She is a rock, a mentor, a teacher, and a cheerleader…and when your Mother can stay no longer, she leaves her presence and her voice to keep you safe and to guide you even in her absence. If you are fortunate enough to still have your mother in this world with you, make every moment count.

Segarini: Celebrating Mom on Mother’s Day 2017

Here’s hoping I can post this without too much trouble. I have been having a lot of problems with my computer and its access to the internet. However, I feel confident that the issues will be resolved and all will be rainbows and unicorns again soon.

I hope it reminds you of yours and brings back some great memories and some stories to share with those you love, and those who loved your mom as much as you do. If your mom is still around, give her a big hug, and a kiss, and tell her that you love her. That’s the one present your Mother will always welcome from you…and the best one you can ever give.

Rivals and Friends

The amount of things to see and do at CMW has become an overwhelming smorgasbord of choices and options that makes your head ache and your feet swell…and your liver angry.

Angry Liver.

I have one.

There is no getting around the fact that if just the music options were available over a period of a year instead of 10 days, you could see 3 bands a night, damn near every night, for 12 months.

Good luck seeing 1000+ bands in 10 days…and taking in the panels…and seminars…and award shows…and parties…and eating…and sleeping…and other stuff.

There should be a Depends booth in the hotel lobby….

Pop Mom and Me

My annual Mother’s Day Tribute to my Mom. I wish you all could have met her….

As most adopted children can tell you, one of the first things you remember being told is how you were chosen to be part of your adopted family, not a random act of passion borne to fruition by parents who sometimes weren’t really trying to make a baby. Any time this information was imparted on an adopted child, it was meant to soothe and/or dispel any doubts the child had of being loved or being perceived as an ‘outsider’.
