  1. Too bad they didn't mention the Mother's Day Shrine church in Grafton, WV, Anna Jarvis's hometown

  2. I just assumed that mother's day was another holiday manufactured by either Hallmark, the confectionery or flower industry to stimulate business.

  3. It will be interesting to see whether we also see "A History of Father's Day" a month from now on this same blog--or any other gay male blog.

  4. I used to love eating my father's rear end after a long day of work, and my typical effeminate mother said "No, Rick. That's not what boys are supposed to do."

    Wasn't she selfish? I hate her for that.

  5. No mention that the first Mother's Day was held in Grafton and that West Virginia was the first state to officially declare Mother's Day as a holiday.

  6. Please take a few moments to visit The Trevor Project at and do what you can to help support those for whom today is not a day of fond remembrance.
