  1. What great photos of your Mom. She is such a classy dame. 😉 ANd an artist too!

    My relationship with my mother was so difficult, I have come to the point where I spend Mother's Day wishing it were over. I'm glad you have such a wonderful relationship with your Mom. She is just fabulous!

    1. Knatolee:
      I can completely understand. Sorry for what you have to go through.

      My mother is extremely talented: watercolor, oils, sculpture, sewing, knitting, needlework. I'll have to do a blog post showing some of her creations.

  2. Lovely photos Mitch, your mother is a beautiful woman. Like Knatolee my relationship with my mum was difficult so I love to hear about happy families like yours.

  3. Love the photo of you and your mom watching the `rowers`!! And looking pretty good!
    happy Mother`s Day to Mitchell`s Mom!

    1. Jeff:
      Thanks so much. My mother is amazing. As for vintage photographs, I love them too, which is a good thing considering that earlier photos of me are now considered vintage!

Share your thoughts and experiences. It's always nice to know I'm not alone.
