Joan Uncommon

I thought people might get a kick out of this joke gift that Mary Lou Ryan, a close friend and colleague of my mom’s, created and gave to her many years ago. It’s very yellowed status attests to its age–it was framed and hung on the wall in our kitchen for more years than I can remember. Reading it over always makes me truly laugh out loud, because it captures my mom perfectly!
