If you’ve been following my COVID-19 blog series recently, you know I like to poke fun at myself and the situations COVID-19 has created in my life. Laughter is the way I deal with life when things get serious. If I don’t want to deal with something, I make a joke about it. It’s my major stress reliever. Just ask my family about the times when I’ve laughed so hard that it turned into a laugh-weeping jag that left me breathless and sore ribbed. But I digress.

Scientists have said that laughter decreases stress hormones and increases immune cells and infection-fighting antibodies. Heaven knows we can all use a boatload of those to fight the pandemic’s stresses and fears. But more important to me, is that laughing is fun. I love to share a laugh with family and friends.

Music is also something I use to relieve stress. The very act of singing raises my spirits. My daughter knows this and she knows how much I love musicals, especially The Sound of Music. So, when she sent me this parody clip someone made, using the song Do, Re, Me, I thought it would be perfect to share on my COVID-19 blog series.

Stay safe in this COVID-19 crazy world and don’t forget to laugh!

A Groom for Mama

By Catherine Castle

Beverly Walters is dying, and before she goes she has one wish—to find a groom for her daughter. To get the deed done, Mama enlists the dating service of Jack Somerset, Allison’s former boyfriend.

The last thing corporate-climbing Allison wants is a husband. Furious with Mama’s meddling, and a bit more interested in Jack than she wants to admit, Allison agrees to the scheme as long as Mama promises to search for a cure for her terminal illness.

A cross-country trip from Nevada to Ohio ensues, with a string of disastrous dates along the way, as the trio hunts for treatment and A Groom For Mama.
