Wednesday, August 6, 2014

Blogger is giving me trouble this morning, so if I even get this posted, it will surprise me.


Only a couple of things today >>>

Today, August 6, 2014 would have been my mother's 99th birthday! It feels odd to think of her that old, especially since she died relatively young. She was only 74 years old when she died.

My dad's birthday is also this month, on August 11th. He would have been 90. Yes, he was nine years younger than she was, and he died at age 78.


Mother, dad, Mike, and me.
Approx. 1958
Notice the Mother-Daughter dresses
my mother made!
 
 
 


The other thing I wanted to mention >>>

I've been replying to your comments and realized I haven't been doing a very good job at it! I'm still on Tea Cup Tuesday, from July 22nd, which I began this morning and that's when Blogger started s-l-o-w-i-n-g d-o-w-n. I'll keep getting caught up as soon as I can....and begin visiting your blogs and leaving comments for YOU! I apologize for being so s-l-o-w myself!


Okay, I'm now going to attempt to post this...for the fourth time! Acckkkkk!!!!




Oh My Gosh!! It worked!! Have a wonderful Wednesday everyone!
