Thank You, Mom

 I have so many things to thank my mother for,
and one of them is my sense of style.
I wish she was still here to see all my outfits.
Above is a pic of Christmas 1965, 
that's me in the foreground.
She is wearing a fab sleeveless dress over a blouse,
and I'm sporting a floral bathrobe.
 Here is Mom with her family:
Brothers: Bud, Darryl and Curt
Sister: Gail (rocking a beehive)
Mom  (in a pretty gingham)
Grandma Florence
 Me and Mom at Mt. Rainier, Washington, 1969
Love our coats!
 Mom and my Uncle Boyd, 
great dress and apron combo!
Mom and me on my 9th birthday!
"Don't burn me Mom!"
Mom: wearing a fun floral number
Me: wearing plaid
I still have this cake stand by the way!
Miss you Mom, you were one stylish woman! 
Happy Mother's Day!
