I’d forgotten about this until Gail Collins mentioned it in her column today. A little lagniappe for the weekend:

    My mom wasn’t a country music fan, but she LOVED Loretta Lynn, way back in the day….and then she sort of became a country music fan for a few years there.

    So this ‘pill’/Loretta theme is (somewhat ironically) quite fitting for Mothers Day.

    ‘Course, ol’ Nance knows that

    Very interesting point made in the section “Influence of song.”

    Another “influence of song” figure.

    Or, yet another stark difference between a a big American city like Detroit, and a smaller American place like Fort Wayne. (this was front page/above the fold in the Friday Journal Gazette):

    Management at the Walmart store in Auburn said the Queen of Soul and her entourage apparently made a pit stop there this week to restock their tour bus parked outside. Workers at the retailer spotted the R&B singer strolling the aisles buying food, clothing, plants and other items.

    Happy Mother’s day, y’all – and here’s wishing every mom (and all mom’s helpers) “r-e-s-p-e-c-t”; even if it means yelling “Stop the presses!” when you exercise your freedom to STOP (and think) at WalMart

    Something to think about this Mother’s Day. Do you get your hair cut regularly at a certain salon? Get your pet groomed? If so, might want to tell them about Matter of Trust, which takes the hair and makes oil spill matts and booms with it:

    Happy Mother’s Day to all, whether you are an official mother or play that role to others. Our daughter graduated from seminary last night and we are bursting with pride.

    Moe99 I will be calling my salon and seeing if they know about this. If not, I will find a place that does. Thanks for the info.

    Julie — congratulations and blessings to your daughter and all of you around her in this significant moment. It’s a pretty amazing experience, whatever the tradition you’re ordained in.

    And often, there’s cake!

    I had a perfectly delightful mother’s day. My daughter Little Bird made a delicious meal of hand made pasta, morels in cream sauce, with a tiny bit of garlic (she knows I’m not fond of garlic) and parmesan with fresh basil sprinkled on top. Raspberry and lemon sorbet for dessert. Yummm. My husband got a great Russian Valley Pinot Noir to have with it and it was all fantastic.

    I have an intense week ahead of me at work and then a week off in Abiquiu, NM, my idea of heaven on earth.

    Treme saluted Jim Jarmusch’s 1986 movie “Down by Law” last night by using this song for the end credits. The movie was filmed in Loiusiana and I have posted New Orleans clips from that movie a couple times before.
