When I started this Fair Housing Defense blog, I had no idea if anyone would actually read it. Well, that's not exactly true. I knew my Mom would read it. One of my early entries (okay, since you asked -- from October 23, 2009) noted that we have been Up and Running for a few months. And I gave my mother a "Hi Mom!" shout out. Of course, a couple of days later my Mom called, roaring with laughter and very excited that I mentioned her in my new blog.
Mom has since passed away. I did not write about it at the time she died, as I wanted to keep this professional. However, upon reflection, that may have been a mistake. While my Mom was my first (and most important) reader, I am gratified that so many of you read this space every month.
As such, while I am down one reader -- I will keep writing in her memory. And, if I might go off topic for a minute, for those of you with Mom's and Dad's still alive -- why not pick up the phone just to say hello right now? You will be glad you did.
Just A Thought.
