Why Won't Whistler Call?

Today is Mother's Day. If you're fortunate enough to have one, call her. She's wanting to hear from you, I'm sure. If you are a mother tuning in here, all the best to you!

Edward Sorel — The New Yorker — May 13, 1996

Mother's Day, Thom? Not in Britain it isn't - that was a while back. We need to synchronise our calendars.

We're the colonies, Kid. We don't need to follow your calendar. Did you ever hear of that little thing called the Declaration of Independence?

Besides, every day should be Mother's Day. They've had to put up with the likes of us.

Thanks for making me laugh today, Thom. My mum died years ago from cancer, so today is nothing but a painful reminder. Nice take on Whistler. LOL>

Kid said...

Ah, but I said 'synchronise', Thom - not 'follow'. In other words, one date - but not necessarily either of the ones we use now.

I heard about that Declaration thingie - word is the British took a 'dive'.

Thomas Haller Buchanan said...

Sorry Kid, I was just being snarky. I'm a great admirer of British culture. In more ways than one I'd like to synchronize with it.

HA! Us Yanks spell 'synchronize' differently than you.

ToB, I'm sorry for your painful loss — such a hard way to lose her.
