Ummm AND Mom is very pretty too.


Awwww! Does your mom want to adopt a son, now that she is in her golden years?

Anybody that likes the French side of St. Martin is OK by me, even if she did raise a hooligan daughter.

Did I mention I dig hooligans?


Gorgeous. I hope someday my kids remember me so fondly.


Lovely post - and love your pictures. What a wonderful tribute!

Seriously fabulous post....

Laurie is a chip off the old 'Aria' (err editorial... old...)

Mantel Man is almost as funny as his sis....:)

Happy Mother's Day


Happy Mother's Day!!!!

I LOVED your post So much!

Mantel Man

Your readers should check out your "Nerds in Europe" posts in the "Travel" category if they want to read about how you and Bocci teased our poor mother:

"Look in Mom's suitcase - it's under the Cuisinart and next to the log splitter."

I hated to miss that trip. I got your letter with the quotes soon after reporting to my squadron in the Persian Gulf, and I laughed like an idiot while my commanding officer held a meeting at the other end of the ready room. It was worth the embarrassment.

Cactus Petunia

That was sweet!
Happy Mother's Day to you and your mom.


Aw, she sounds wonderful.

And Mantle Man DOES sound tall enough for me, btw ... :)

Hope you're having a wonderful day! (I, myself, am going to indulge in a nap while MP's asleep -- woo hoo!)


What a truly lovely post.

Happy Mother's Day!


Beautiful photos, and I hope you have a great Mother's Day. Also? Love "I fed the cat songs" -- a category that belongs on some chart with its own Top 40, no doubt.

Mental P Mama

And the same to you!

Chesapeake Bay Woman

What a wonderful tribute. The acorn obviously has not fallen far from the tree; you share many of her God-given talents.

Have a fantastic Mother's Day.


Beautiful and funny! Happy Mother's Day to you too and I hope you have a fantastic day!!
