Erma’s Column

Did you know that Erma Bombeck, the famous comedy author and columnist, loved to needlepoint?  I still think about her book, If Life is a Bowl of Cherries, What am I Doing in the Pits? whenever I see cherry pits.  She laughed, and we all laughed along with her.  She knew what was important in life.  She had her priorities straight.  It’s no wonder needlepoint was her passion.

  1. I have a couple books too and I re-read them…one of my favorites is “Motherhood, the second oldest Profession.” I laughed and cried, saw myself and many of my friends in this book.
