Mom Fact-Checks My Ass!: (It's a saying we have here, ma.) My darling mother left her first comment ever on my blog today! In the comments of my "Pianist" post there had been some debate over the pronunciation of the word, and I had written:

Which brought this maternal observation:
Finally found some authentic contribution to make--actually your sister's most prestigious piano teachers all said piANist and I learned very quickly not to buck the trend. Ah, the memory is a treacherous beast.
Doh! Now, the rest of you play nice and leave comments about what a nice job she did raising me....Or at least encourage her to start her own blog, which would be killer. UPDATE: And now Aunt Sue has left a comment here!

A classy mom whose regularly blogged voice would help harmonize the rabid blogosphere...

She could also tell you a thing or two about:

* Civil War history, especially regarding the German 1848ers, like her great-grandpa, who fought for the North.

* Hospital management, especially nursing divisions.

* Modelling skill and daring.

* The best and worst of historical American fiction.

* Much, much more.
