Anyway, my Mom came through and ended my day delightfully:
Fluffy, from scratch, biscuits for us to devour!!!
And my favorite, HAMBURGER gravy. I have always preferred hamburger gravy over sausage - always!!!
And the bowl that the gravy is in is called: "The Gravy Bowl." You may think that fairly un-original but that's just what it is. This gravy bowl was used by my Grandma (Mom's mom) for GRAVY. And it's used by my Mom for GRAVY and I know that someday, years and years from now, I will have it in my kitchen to serve GRAVY in. (Unless one of my brother's get it, I guess...) Anyways, it doesn't matter how much gravy you need to serve, you serve it in this bowl and then just refil the bowl. That's the way it's always been and there is no need to change it generations later.
Thanks, Mom. Let's do this again soon, okay? I love you!
