My mom admires Connie Green, an Internet empire builder. So when Connie organized a pre-conference get-together, Mom flew in to join them. She left on a 6 AM flight and arrived on time in Las Vegas.
The group posed for a photo. Connie’s in back, wearing pink, with a big warm smile. Mom’s the one on the far right, wearing a hat. She’s crouching down just a little so people can see the folks behind her. Nobody dresses up because they all work from home on the Internet .Some of them don’t even have suits anymore.
“Do I look OK, Gracie?” she asked, showing me the photo. “Not too old or too fat?”
What do I know? I am a dog, remember? I think she looks fabulous when she’s got a hand out to give me my treats.
