My internet friends come together to honor the memory of my Mom who passed away unexpectedly on August 28, 2011. They declared Sept 4 to be a day to bake cookies and share with strangers, just like Mom did. See http://bit.ly/cookielove

This was originally published on Storify at https://storify.com/cogdog/cookielove but because they are trashing their web site in May 2018, I have liberated my content here using the Storify Link Extractor tool.

I was on my way crossing Canada as part of my Odyssey when the call came in Belleville, Ontario during a dinner with friends Andy and Kent…

Andy was a huge amount of support as I stayed at his house; drank whiskey and did a ds106 radio broadcast before I set out the next day to drive to Baltimore.

Andy is a Good Friend

#ds106radio 4 life! They played live music, songs, and stuff for me as I drove 530 miles to get from Ontario to Baltimore.

On my travels I had been sending her a series of “Cousin Bobby” style postcards from every state and province I visited. On the day I got the call I had just bought on from Ontario, so I delivered the last postcard at her funeral.
