BEST SPORT OF THE YEAR 2014
There are few people who would allow someone they love to make fun of them in public. For over a year, I have been writing blogs using my beloved husband, Mr. Wonderful, as the scapegoat and target of my humorous rantings. It is time to give credit where much is due. In front of my loyal facebook friends, my crazy relatives, my professional acquaintances, my therapist from 1973 and my fabulous students of the past 35 years, here it is:
