toonless mother's day



One of the few advantages of being chronically disorganized is that I'm always running across photos and scraps of paper that I forgot I had. It's always a surprise. This is a photo of my late mother taken in 2003. She's holding a bobcat kitten that a mama bobcat had abandoned in a seldom used barn down on the farm. I miss you, Mom.

Hapy Mother's Day.

I miss my mom too; and considering we were oil and water, that is saying something.

She must have been so proud of you!
Wish I'd seen this yesterday. I'd have felt less alone.
Moms. We just never stop missin' 'em.
