I found a book many years ago entitled "Life's Little Instruction Booklet" and each page had one instruction on it; things like "over tip breakfast waitresses", or "always buy whatever kids are selling when they knock on your door".

Some years later, I found a poster with many of these on it and it hangs in my house to this day.

At the very bottom, the last instruction is "call your mom".

When Lisa Openshaw posted something along these lines on Facebook, this morning, it reminded me of this.

It doesn't matter if I'm in the middle of talking on the air or anything else. When mom calls, I always answer it.

Yes, many times it's about the trouble with her cable TV, or how there's not one doctor left in Great Falls that knows a damned thing about medicine, I always enjoy the calls. I'll always answer her calls.
