This dates from May, 2010, when my dear mother (who died in 2016) was about to visit me in Carmel. She would come out periodically to see if I was holding up my standards to her specifications and make recommendations for improvements where needed, always with love. Bob, well acquainted with both of us, composed a Mother’s day limerick in her honor:
In praise of her Mother we sing!
Her high standards in full she may bring.
For suggestions may help
Civilize her young whelp,
Or least tighten up her mainspring.
