8 Reasons to be Thankful for Mama Rose

by Shari on November 23, 2012

8. Mama Rose just hung this sign in her home.

7.  Mama Rose let us escape our heatless home and made an entire Thanksgiving dinner for us on two days’ notice.

6. If I ever need a pair of reading glasses, or twenty-seven pairs, I know that Mama Rose will be on it.

5. Mama Rose hangs out with her priest, Father Mike, and Father Mike is so cool that he even managed to eat his Thanksgiving Dinner ten minutes after my dogs crapped on the carpet right in front of him.

4. Mama Rose allowed my dogs to stay at her house after they crapped on the white carpet thirty seconds after they walked in the door, even though she did have them imprisoned for their crimes.

3. Mama Rose lets my kids watch TV for hours and hours and at an eyesight-destroying distance, which officially makes her my children’s favorite person.

2. Mama Rose gave us her minivan, which is the only automobile on planet Earth that my son does not vomit in, and which also has roses painted on the back end so that we can find it in crowded parking lots.

1.  Mama Rose actually let the pugs back in the house after they crapped on her white carpet. You know, as long as they wore their diapers.

I CAN’T TALK, I AM IN A COMA!!! SISSY – DANNI – CALLED ME TO LAUGH AND LAUGH CAUSE SHE WASN’T GETTING THEM THIS TIME. THEY HAVE BEEN AT HER HOUSE THROUGH ALL THE HURRICANE. SO SHE CALLED AND SAID – YEP I DREW THE SHORT STRAW, I WAS GETTING THE CABELINS FOR THANKSGIVING. SO I PREPARED THE DINNER OF MYLIFE – AT MY AGE – PUSHING 80 – AND AS THEY ENTER MY HOUSE – THE NUTSY DOGS BOTH CRAP AT THE SAME TIME AND SHARI IS STEPPING IN IT AND WE ARE ALL SCREAMING AT THE SAME TIME. FATHER MIKE’S MOUTH DROPPED OPEN IN ABSOLUTE SHOCK. THIS CRAZY FAMILY ARE LIKE A WHIRLING DIRVISH SPINNING AROUND UNTIL THEY LEAVE – WHERE I AM OUT OF MY MIND WITH CONFUSION. THE HOUSE IS A SHAMBLES AND ALL THE FOOD IS PACKED IN BAGS FOR THEM TO TAKE TO CARLITO’S BROTHER’S HOUSE IN CLEVELAND. GOOD LUCK TO HIM. BUT WE HAD A FABULOUS TIME.
HAPPY THANKSGIVING EVERYONE. AND “IF YOU MET MY FAMILY YOU WOULD UNDERSTAND” I AM STILL IN THE COMA.
LOVE YA.
MAMA ROSE

They wear diapers? You can do that?

Mama Rose is one of a kind!

I gave my entire family the stomach flu for Thanksgiving, Including my 92 year old Grandma Gladys who said it was worth it because she had so much fun. Isn’t family the best?

I am in love with Mama Rose’s t-shirts – she ROCKS!

Mama Rose hand-fringes ALL of her t-shirts. It’s a long-running joke. :-)
