In a meeting the other day, a gentleman asked me if he could remove his jacket.   I had forgotten that little rule.  Naturally, I was charmed.  Similarly, another friend mentioned how her mother didn’t allow her to drink anything out of a can on the street.  It’s considered low brow and “telling”.

My husband’s grandmother used to compliment my parenting by saying, “Betsy, you are doing a wonderful job with Meade and Ridley…you understand the difference between raising and rearing.  One “raises” a crop of corn, but one rears children.”   All I can say is, “I’m trying”

Kim Alsbrooks mixes metaphor with her silhouettes on smashed pieces of garbage.  These are sure to raise an eyebrow.
