The Mother of all Mothers, Queen Victoria!
To all of you out there who are moms (or pet moms!) Happy Mother's Day! Here is of shot of me and my mom in 1971. Those were the days; so carefree. This week has been anything but. My Uncle Andy passed away on Tuesday after a long battle with prostate cancer. He was 81. My dad's eldest brother and also my godfather. We all knew it was coming, but the sadness is none the less. He is the first one of that generation to pass on. I have always considered my grandparents and their generation the "Old Ones", but they are nearly all gone now....only two siblings of my grandmother left on my father's side. Now my mom and dad's generation are becoming the old ones and that's pretty hard to take. I look at this photo of me and my mom and it's as if time has stood still at that exact moment...and sometimes I wish it had.
