Return to Me Oh Chicken Vesuvio!

Have you ever seen the 2000 romantic comedy, “Return To Me” with David Duchovny and Minnie Driver? It was written and directed by Bonnie Hunt, and was the last film of Carroll O’Connor’s career.

If you haven’t seen it, I’m not going to spoil it for you other than to say this was a beautiful romantic comedy, a real throw back to a more innocent time in the film industry.

Let’s start with what the heck is Mema Style?  Mema is me – it’s what my grandchildren call me.  If you hail from Texas or are a fan of “The Big Bang Theory” and its spin-off “Young Sheldon” then you know what I’m talking about.
