Today is a day set aside to pay special tribute to all our mothers, mothers-to-be, and mothers in our memories. I came across a quote that I particularly like and wanted to share it with you.

"Mother love is the fuel that enables a normal human being to do the impossible." Marion C Garretty
I wanted to share a very fun picture I have of my Grandma Vi. She is enjoying her eighth decade of life, and still has the greatest sense of humor. She was visiting me (she lives in Montana) for Thanksgiving about three years ago, and we had an opportunity to get her on the motorycycle. She was all for going for a SHORT little ride, until we told her she had to put on a helmet. "Oh, I can't do that", she said, "it will mess up my hair!"

A big THANK YOU goes out to my Mom for being there for me always, and also being the best girlfriend I could ask for! I LOVE YOU!

Have a great Mother's Day everyone! Lady R

Great picture of you and your Mom!

Happy Mother's Day, LadyR!

Great pictures, thanks for sharing them with us. I loved the quote too. Have a great day!

IHG said...

Love the pictures!

You've asked about Dubuque a few times in your posts. My sister lives in Dyersville so I get to Dubuque every once in a while. It's a fun place to party! :)~

Have a great day!!

Happy mother's day LadyR. I love the pic of your grandma. Everytime I ride Doll Baby to see my mother I as her if she wants to ride. She's 85 and always says it's too windy or too cold or too something. She says maybe next time.

Thanks Maggie and B.B.!

IHG...I still have two brothers and a ton of other family still in Dubuque. If you ever need anything, let me know. I did my share of partying in that place!

Hey Ronman, aren't Grandmas Grand!

Wow, your mom is a hottie! The apple doesn't fall far from the tree now does it. It's a great thing when you have endured many years and still have enough hair to worry about mess'n up. Happy Moms-Day! I know your little furry ones love you dearly!

Joker... If it hadn't been for that dumb ol' helmet, I think she would have gone! She's a trip! I hope I keep my sense of humor like she has over the years.

Ann...Thanks! I know you had a great Mom's day with Eric being home.
