If my mother knew I posted this picture of her on the net...
I laughed at the hat. She loved the hat. I laughed harder when I found out she was serious. I love her, so who cares about the hat?
The mother in my books is my mother in real life, Minnie Crumpler a.k.a. Minnie Watson. If you've read my books, I need say nothing more, but I would like to ask—do you think Minnie Watson would wear that hat?
And what do you think my mother thought of my hat?
Note: She's too much of a lady to laugh.
