Today you have both Autumn the Puppy AND Waxy Dragon here as we celebrate Mothers' Day.
That's right Autumn. We realize that not everybody may have one, but Mom's are very special.
All the cards, flowers, candy, and other gifts you could possibly give her will never equal the value of a mother's love for her children.
True Waxy. Oliver Wendell Holmes said, "Youth fades, love droops, the leaves of friendship fall. Yet a mother's secret hope for her children's happiness outlives them all.”
Okay. I never met the man, but I'll take your word for it. Anyway, among all their other great qualities, mothers are excellent teachers too. Here are a few examples...
OUR FAMILY ROOTS
"Shut that door behind you. Do you think you were born in a barn?"
Actually, Waxy was hatched from an egg in a nest, and my mother had me and my litter mates underneath her owner's bed, but that's beside the point.
"Make sure you wear clean underwear in case you're in an accident."
Then again, I'd be too busy trying to avoid the accident to worry about whether or not my underwear was clean at the time.
Err, Waxy, you do know neither of us even wears underwear, right?
"When you get to be my age, you'll understand."
Well, Autumn's been to Obedience School (for all the good it did her) and I'm still going to Dragon School, but at what age does wisdom come?
I wish I knew Waxy. Based upon their actions, I can certainly think of a few people who are still waiting for it to show up.
In any event folks, if you haven't done so already, hug your mother, have a great week, and please be back here again next weekend for more Sunday Funnies!—WD and AtP.
