This Mother’s Day, as on countless other family occasions, we got nostalgic about Tom Lehrer’s 1965 album of political satire songs, That Was The Year That Was. Who could forget these classic mother-related rhymes, “So long, Mom, I’m off to drop the bomb, so don’t wait up for me,” and “Remember, Mommy, I’m off to get a commie, so send me a salami, and try to smile somehow”?
Sure, on this day we honor our mothers, the women who brought us into this world and blah blah blah, but we all know what Mother’s Day is really about. Just follow Adam’s lead.
It also happens to be Howie’s birthday. Howie cooked up some delicious burgers. Oh Mama!

We also got to spend time with cousins Keren and Bob, who were visiting from Massachusetts.
