Friday’s Fun Find: Erma Bombeck (Sort of)

Good old Erma Bombeck, right? I get the Erma Bombeck Writer’s Workshop newsletter in my inbox, and I laughed out loud when I read about how she penned her own obituary while on a Grand Canyon trek.

Erma was a hoot. But you know what? I know a lot of women writers who are a hoot. I read their funny stories on their blogs, and sometimes, I laugh out loud at the comments they leave here at my blog.

And I think it’s about time some of you funny ladies shared your wit with Erma (and the blog of the workshop carrying her name). You can send your funny musings to

I might even dust off the wit and send something myself. I mean, I’m a hoot and a half, according to the Beneficent Mr. Hall. (I think it’s supposed to be a compliment, right?)

  1. Tell the Beneficient Mr. Hall that you are at minimum, a triple hoot. And that’s from one of your half hoot writer friends!
    PS I have a writer friend from Chautauqua who went to the EB workshop/conference. She loved it and said her face hurt from smiling/laughing so much.

  2. I agree with Lisa. Cathy, you’re way more than a hoot and some change. A whole pile of hoots is what you are.

    So Gladys better watch out. You might start hooting so much, Gladys might think an owl is treading on her territory. 😉

I'm Always Fishing for Compliments. Wait! Comments! I meant Comments!
