Just finished listening to one of my favorite podcasts, “The Writer’s Almanac.” I especially enjoyed this episode entitled “Somebody’s Mother” by Mary Dow. I have included a link back to the website which links to this particular podcast. Hope you enjoy this piece. The picture is one of my Mom sitting on the front steps of the Olinda home in Westville, New Jersey. Notice the mail slot on the screen door? Not something you see in suburbia much any more. Mike was also there with Sparky the dog. It was probably about 1984.
