A Tribute to Erma Bombeck

26 Jan


Judy Wills


As I mentioned last time, from time-to-time I go through some of my “stuff” – mostly papers – and run across some things that I’ve saved for one reason or another.  That happened recently, while I was searching for a particular photo I wanted to use in one of my postings.

In searching, I came upon this article written by Erma Bombeck.  She always wrote such fun and funny things.  Obviously this one was written about teenagers, and I must have saved it because I had teenagers at the time.  In any case, I thought it was funny – and appropriate – enough to save.

I hope you think the same.

Here is “At Wits End” by Erma Bombeck:

Judy is living in Central Florida with her retired U.S. Air Force husband of 50+ years. Born in Dallas, Texas, she grew up in the Southwestern United States.She met her husband at their church, where he was attending the university in her town. After college and seminary, he entered the Air Force, and their adventures began.They lived in eight of our United States, and spent six years in Europe, where their oldest daughter was born. She was a stay-at-home mom for many years .

  Judy has always been involved with music, both playing the piano and singing. Always interested in exercise, she was an aerobic dancing instructor, as well as a piano teacher for many years, and continues to faithfully exercise at home.

After moving to Central Florida, she served as a church secretary for nearly nine years.Her main hobby at this point in time is scanning pictures and 35mm slides into the computer. She also enjoys scrapbooking.She and her husband have two married daughters and four grandchildren, including grandtwins as well as a great-grandson. She and her husband enjoy the Disney parks as often as possible.
