A Creative, Patient Mother Gets Revenge
Some Mother’s Day humor from humorist, senior citizen, mother and grandmother Jeanne Robertson, who shares her funny story about teenagers, cars, and demonstrates how a patient mother can get her revenge and just possibly, finally have the last word.
Happy Mother’s Day to all the mom’s, grandmom’s, great-grandmoms, honorary mom’s, and mom’s of pets – there is nothing like a mother’s love (or sense of humour).
Baby boomer Jeanne Robertson was born September 21, 1943. She grew up to be 6’2″ at age 13, became Miss North Carolina in 1963, and was named Miss Congeniality when she competed in the Miss America Pageant. She used her contest winnings to fund college, and coached and taught physical education for 8 years. Her commitment to fitness, exercise and physical activity as a senior citizen is evident in her still lean physique today in her seventies; she began training for her first marathon in her 50+ years and Robertson has since competed in several. Instead of retiring, Jeanne embarked on a career as a public speaker in 1976 and has never looked back. Jeanne Robertson writes her own material and practices her brand of comedy 20 times a year for senior motor coach travelers on bus tours.
