Because it’s Mothers Day. Yay for me! Thank you, Woodrow Wilson. Actually, I’m just looking for an excuse to not study today. Found it.

Mother (1938 - 1996)
As some of you may have read in the bio post I did last year, my mother, Barbara, was a wonderful lady. Sure, we had our problems (see yesterday’s post), but bottom line, for good or ill, she devoted herself completely to parenting Mavis and me. I mean, for almost twenty years, that was her sole occupation in the world. And I for one will never forget that sacrifice, even as I hope she got some joy out of it, too. I know we did.


To all the Finkville moms, I say “Happy Day!” To all my fiends who are fortunate enough to be sons and daughters of moms who can still be hugged, I say, “Go do it, right now.”

Mavis and I are being treated to a pizza party tonight with the whole gaggle. What are you doing for Mom’s Day?

What a beautiful picture of your mom!!! As you know I am mom to Chevy and he very sweetly brought me a dead bird this morning. He was so proud! I said thank you and praised him, then threw the poor bird away.

I agree with BoomR, I will want to see pics!!! Have a wonderful day, ^leesa, you deserve it. :)

Was a good cat? Still is! Even if he does kill cute little birdies. :)
