HAPPY BIRTHDAY, MOM!!!
July 1954 - The brave woman above, although herself no more than barely a post-adolescent at the time, gave birth to the author of this blog. Some 20-some years before that, on this very day, another brave woman, age unknown to this author at this time, also gave birth, this time to the woman pictured above.
Flash forward back to the here and now, and we have the son, off on a semi-hedonistic adventure to hear as much music as he possibly can in one week, nearly forgetting to even as much as call his own mother on her birthday. Thank Jobs for the internet, so at least he can send this virtual birthday card, and wish her the very best.
Love you, Mom! Have a great birthday and a terrific year!
