Mom and Cookies and Trisha Yearwood
My Mom has this wonderful habit of talking to people and making friends with strangers; often by giving out her home made chocolate chip cookies.
One year when she flew out to visit me in Arizona, her plane was delayed in Dallas. She befriended the young woman on the plane next to her (via cookies, I bet), who turned out to be part of the road crew for the singing tours of Trisha Yearwood.
Mom stayed in touch with the young lady by email, and when the country singer's tour came through South Florida, Mom got free up front tickets and a backstage pass to meet Trisha.
And to give her cookies.
