Keeping this blog up while I'm visiting my mother in the States for her 97th birthday has been a challenge due to limited internet access. So please bear with my sporadic posts this week.
Today is a special day. My mother, a WWII vet, was born on this day in 1915. Today, this blog is set aside to honour her. No more words. Just pictures.

|Handing out treats to celebrate the two birthdays: the US's 236th and Mom's 97th|
(She's got a ways to go to "catch up", eh?)

Happy 4th of July to all my readers wherever you are.
