Here’s to you, sweetheart.

cameo_perfume-600.jpgThe Big Cheese’s mother passed away last night. Being me, I already had a post pre-loaded for today. But my heart isn’t in it. Of course my failure to post would annoy her (I am laughing and crying as I write that.) She was not long on sentiment. At any rate, I will be busy with Things That Must Be Taken Care Of.
We visited her yesterday, the whole brood, for Mother’s Day, and she and I had a great conversation about perfume, of all things, which I will post on at some point. She was a fine, funny lady, and I will miss her.

If you’re in the mood later today, put on your favorite scent and toast her with her drink of choice: a stiff vodka martini on the rocks, with an olive.

    Do post some of her favorite perfumes when you feel up to it. One of the strongest connections to memory is scent.

    Hopefully happy memories will be a comfort to you and yours.
