Today is Bastille Day, which also means that it is the birthday of my late mother-in-law, a.k.a. "She Who Felt Kitty Could Do Better."
Of course, after thirty-some years, Eileen admitted that I was a "good guy." I prefer to think this admission was just a long delayed reaction to my charm and essential coolness.
Eileen could be a difficult person to know but at her core she was very kind-hearted -- which was the last thing she would admit to. We miss her every day.
