Today is and has been, Mother's Day. As I sit in the chair next to my Mother's, watching "Sherlock" on 'Masterpiece Theatre', "The Hound of the Baskervilles", I am reminded of a moment just a few days ago. Mom loves a Mystery. She mentioned just the other day that "her boyfriend was coming on". She was watching Turner Classic Movies and a Boston Blackie movie starring Chester Morris was about to start - and she was elated. It seems that as a young woman these self same Boston Blackie movies, starring Chester Morris, had introduced her to "Mystery", and instigated a life long passion for murder and intrigue - at least as far as a preference for entertainment. And for reading. Mom loves a good book, and mysteries are best.
I hope all of you have a had wonderful Mother's Day. It was a beautiful day, here in Chicagoland. I hope it was where you are, as well.
