"Who stopped you?" "A little old man in red ear muffs." "Who wears red ear muffs in this weather?!" "The little old man who stopped me."

 Feature and Follow

 This Sunday in the US is Mother;s Day, in celebration, what are some of your favourite books with strong mother/child relationships?

 I'm a bit late, but here it is. 

 I do like the mother and daughter in While Mortal's Sleep, though the mother isn't in the book much. The mother, though not always the nicest, always seems to know just what Mady needs. In turn in the other books, His Watchful Eye and Above all Earthly Powers, Mady becomes a somewhat nice mother to those around her, though she does have her not at all nice moments. Though she would stop at nothing to keep them safe. And she was extra sweet at the end. 8-)

 So, well, that's about it! Oh, except for. This title quote was taken from Get Smart, the old TV show. It is from the show where Max and Sigfried (who are mortal enemies) are forced to work together to save the world so they won't be out of a job and still have something to fight over. The line isn't one of Max and Sigfried's but between Sigfried and his right hand man, Stakker.

 At the beginning of the show, a man in red ear muffs comes to Max and asks him to sign a petition to silence the world. Max says no. So later the man stops Stakker on his way to a meeting with Sigfried, in turn making him late. This, in my opinion, is one of the best Get Smart shows ever made.

 Anyhow, now I'm off for real.

 Allons-y!!

  1. I remember when we watched that episode! That was funny. :D I like those shows. Do you have them on DVD? If so you should bring them when you come. We'll make Maddie and my mom suffer through them while you and my dad and I have a good laugh. :D

    I can't wait till you come. It will be lots of fun. But then, we always have fun. Let's just hope the power doesn't go out this time! lol! :D
