Call Your Mom

If that’s even an option for you. Life is fragile & fleeting & the future of our entire world has never been more unpredictable.

Interesting….

The same people that have been promoting abortion for many years are the same people who won’t let you see your mom this year.

I am going to forgo the usual political bitch fest and post some vintage pictures of my mother today beginning with the youngest to her becoming a mother. I’m the oldest of 6 children, all with the same father if you can believe that. That used to be a thing. Getting married & having children & staying married to the same man, for better or worse.

Guess which one it usually was?

Happy Mother’s Day to all the mothers. Being a mother has been the most joyful & fulfilling experience of my life. Where there is love, children are a blessing.

Hope your day is great even if you can’t be with your child this year for one reason or another.

Point Pelee National Park

Ontario, Canada.

Land where most of my people are from.

These are pictures from a trip taken 10 years ago with my digital.  It was very different from another trip taken there 20 years before that when our children were young and there were such nice bogs at the time.  Could not find that area, if it even exists anymore.  I have a few pictures taken with a disc camera from the 80’s of the bogs but if any of you are even familiar with that format, you know the quality was not very good.  I had a 35 mm but purchased a Kodak disc because it was smaller, auto focus and didn’t want to risk my good camera in that environment of water and sand.  I always took a cheap camera to the beach.

Mom found an old abandoned Coke machine in the woods.
