I'm not sure it quite counts as her 15 minutes of fame (or even 15 seconds!), but you can just see my mom in the dining room part of this commercial in the upper right-hand corner of the picture.
The man interviewed for the ad is just the nicest fellow and he and his wife keep an eye on my mom and go out of their way to chat with her and make sure she's doing all right. Their grandson and his family actually live right outside of Columbus.
In other news, I'm just about recovered from the whirlwind trip Nathan and I made to D.C. last weekend to meet up with old pals and attend the memorial service for my high school friend Lance. Or rather, linger outside the door of the service....Nathan decided he wasn't really in the mood to nap at that point after all, so I actually missed all of the happy memories and laughter and was finally able to sneak into the theater just in time for the sober minute of silence and candles. Oh well, I'm still glad I went.
