    Ms. Plainwell, Noooooooo..!!!! It’s got to be flowers at least! Every body who has ever had a mom, raise your hand….Was yours as good as mine?…I doubt it. But then again, I’m sure you’d say the same thing..

    unless your mother is a self-centered, ignorant, selfish woman who whines about not getting enough attention. who also has a xanax addiction, coupled with a pack a day habit and the alcohol dependence, she can buy her own card.

    You speak from experience, I take it?

    Love Miss P’s expression in the second panel.

    Good Job, Frazz! One step ahead of his girlfriend’s mother.

    Once she hits 80, you have to go visit. Out to dinner. A plus is her bragging rights with friends.

    It’s too late for me with my mother, but unless the two of you truly detest each other, don’t waste the chances that you get to be with either of your parents. Just this week comments elsewhere on songs reminded me of how much I miss my mother’s singing. Unfortunately, it is not recorded somewhere. There are days that I really could use hearing some of it.

    Whoa. Got some issues? Seriously, there is help out there. Mom may have been a loser, but doesn’t mean she has to ruin your day. Take care.

    Do these two ever do anything other than run or bike? I mean a healthy lifestyle is good and all, but doesn’t it get a little boring? Doesn’t Frazz actually perform music somewhere, if only to sharpen his music writing skills? Do they go to movies? a museum? shopping?

    Frazz should write a song for his mom. I waited too long, and it ended up looking like this (talk about belated):

    You’re Not There Any More

    Hey, look who’s going to be on TV Tuesday night
    I’d better call so you don’t miss it…Oh, that’s right

    Chorus 1:
    You’re not there any more
    Sometimes I forget
    You’re not there any more
    And I so regret
    We can’t share anymore
    All the things we used to do
    Somehow, I swear that it’s not fair
    That you’re not there

    Chorus 2:
    Sometimes it slips my mind
    You’re not there any more
    I guess I need more time
    I still care all the more
    But I can’t believe it’s true
    Somehow, I swear that it’s not fair
    That you’re not there

    Anymore, when I’m driving
    And I hear our favorite song
    I think how much I wish that you were
    Here with me to sing along
    But all those harmonies forever
    Lost to me because I’ll never
    Sing them to myself because
    They sound so wrong

    Repeat Chorus 1

    Why buy two cards?

    Do we have the same mom? Mine was a vicious life sucking b*tch from which there was no escape – until I left.

    Kingstonave – what a great song, I love your opening verse.

    Miss Plainwell is obviously not good with keeping track of dates. Luckily Frazz knows this & helped her out.

    @old dog…you got that right! Only make it seventy….to paraphrase something my dad once said, “don’t wait until she’s eighty, she’ll be too tired”.

    & @vwdualnomand
    Yea, mine was was a mentally ill, hardcore alcoholic slut who verbally. emotionally, and physically abused her children on a daily basis, along with anybody who tried to befriend or help her. Stopped all contact with her when she threatened to kill me, my wife and our unborn (her first & only grandchild) child because we wouldnt just give her $$$.
    I love celebrating Mothers Day for all the good mothers (and I let them know it) but mine, no thanks!
