Monica's Mother's Day present to me was watching my kids while I played a gig since The KingofHearts was out of town.  Also, a package of a thousand live ladybugs.  It's good to have friends like her because they manage to give you things you never even knew you were missing.

You thought I was kidding, didn't you?
But then again, for two days all the ladybugs crawled around our deck like this:

So the result of that gift was that I had to have a talk with my kids about the birds and the bees... and the ladybugs, apparently.

And I didn't get her anything.
