"I don't know," he said.
"Would you like it?"
"Sure. But that's me."
I would, too. But, I wasn't sure how the Mama would feel. So, I decided not to make a mosaic photo to give her for her ninety (cough third) some birthday.
You'd never guess what happened yesterday evening. The Mama asked me to find the photos of her wearing her Maria Clara dress and make big prints of them.
So, I did. She'll be surprised when she sees them because it takes forever for me to do things. She had asked me to hem her jeans on the sewing machine. I finally did yesterday. But, the pants had sat so long on the chair that Molly the Cat took to sleeping on them.
This photo was taken in November, 1962, a few weeks after we moved into the house that she and the Daddy purchased. She was standing in the barren backyard, which over the next 24 years became happily planted with roses, lawn, a huge vegetable garden, and fruit trees.
Happy Birthday to the Mama!
