End-of-Year COBBLER Cheer

Special highlights of the SUPER-newsy end-of-year issue included an update on our bullying workshops, fun with sports and pastry, some quotes about me by my husband, and some quotes BY me in an article ABOUT me.

Then there was another great link to a Moya Stone article about The Souls of Her Feet.

And some sad and silly goodbyes to my dear friend and dog-daughter, the lovely, elegant goofball Maddie Moose Maddyson Maddog von Caven. Or however she spelled it.

A.k.a. Mad-tilda, Madison Square Garden, Madagascar, Madeline Albright Caven.


They Can't Take Maddaway From Me

Love song for Maddy Caven, 1997-2013 ~ apologies/gratitude to George & Ira Gershwin

There are many, many crazy things
That we’ll always love about you,
And with your permission
May I list a few?

The way you’d get the cat.
The way you’d run so free.
The memory of all that -
No, no - they can't take that away from me.

The way you’d fill the bed.
The way we fixed your knee.
The way you’d shake and shed.
No, no - they can't take that away from me.

We may never, never meet again
On that bumpy road of life
Still I'll always,
Always keep the memory of...

The way you filled my lap (do-do-do-do do-do).
The way you’d lick your pee.
The way you changed our life.
No, no - they can't take that away from me.

No, they can't take that away from me.
