Happy Mother's Day, MomSunday greetings everyone and happy Mother's Day to my mom. This year I am showing off a picture of my mom on the old CBS television show, "What's My Line?" from August 4, 1963. Mom (Diane) is on the left joined by her sister (Linda) and host John Charles Daly. What was their line? They were both amongst the first policewomen in Toronto, Canada.

Grandma, who appeared to become an ever-more intimidating personality as the years went on, was giving directions to her grown grandson who was coming to visit with his wife:
"You come to the front door of the apartment complex. I am in apartment 14T. There is a big panel at the door. With your elbow push button 14T. I will buzz you in. Come inside, the elevator is on the right. Get in, and with your elbow hit 14. When you get out I am on the left. With your elbow, hit my doorbell."
"Grandma, that sounds easy, but why am I hitting all these buttons with my elbow?" the grandson asked.
A six-year-old said grace at family dinner one evening.
"Dear God, thank You for the pancakes."
When she concluded, her mother asked her why she thanked God for pancakes when they were having chicken-pot-pie.
She smiled and said, "I thought I would check to see if He was paying attention."
