Saturday we had a Mother's Day luncheon
 with my mom
at her assisted living home.

 Mom's bottle tree


Maggie and Elle Pea (Penelope)

Yertle the Turtle-neck and Ollie

Abbie (with baby Clifford on board)

Linda with Adrienne, Ashley, and grand daughter Lydia

Jackie and Ollie 

It was nice. 
I asked my sister, Jackie
to take pictures of me, mom and my girls.
It is obvious we are twins.
She sucks as bad as worse than I do 
in the photographer department.

Proof positive...

I love the shot of Aubrie and Mom.
Really good job Jackie...
but where is Penelope?

It was overcast but bright.
I am a blinker but I tried really hard 
to keep my eyes open. 
I am as bad a photo subject as 
I am a photographer. 
Apparently, with the exception of Annie,
it runs in the family.

God help us.
Dern it Caroline,

Well, you get the picture.
Poor as it may be.


  1. Y'all might be blinkers, but you're hotties. Maggie looks most like you. I'm sticking to it. You look great, btw!

  2. Who was lookin' at you?!? (I had my eyes on the bottle tree!)
    The one of Caroline was really sweet...
    No, seriously, that last one isn't bad at all--and your eyes were open WAY more times than mine would have been.
    Looks like you had a fine afternoon to be outdoors.
    Today I go to Chicago to see our 11th g'baby, Silas (still in hospital fighting a bad virus). My sis is going to travel with me. I'm looking forward to some sista time.
