Your Mother Should Know

Still stuck on song titles from The Beatles. When in doubt - steal!

I've been seeing photo memories all over the web of late. I'm thinking lots of us are in funky-funks perhaps and looking at the past is the best way to form a future. Bop!

When Pup and I were in Idaho I was looking through family photo albums and Momma Bee was sweet enough to scan a few for me and throw them on a CD. I'd love to go back and scan all of the albums the memories and visuals were so fun to see. I want them!

First of all; here's another shot of my car. Isn't it the most awesome thing you've ever laid eyes on? Just knowing that my dad wants me to have this made my heart swell with emotion. Cars are his passion and that he is going to share his passion with all three of us kids is beyond words for me. I love you Dad.

Barnabee is on the left. The rest are my aunts and one of my aunt's partner. How adorable are they?

A shot of me when I was about 20. I do believe there was wine involved. Do you love those plucked eyebrows?

My momma. This is a shot of her while we were all up at the cabin. A natural redhead. As fiery as you might imagine. I do believe it's true what they say about redheads. She was truly adorable and kept you on your toes to say the least.

The mountain view outside of Barnabee's front window. The fog never cooperated while Pup and I were there so I am so happy that Momma Bee had this photo to share.

Lorenzo and Barnabee's dog Chitzi. The girls and I rescued Chitzi from the clutches of a crabby piano teacher they had back in the day. I bought Chitzi from that lady and gave her to my momma. My dad fell in love with that little thing and had her for years and years. She was a ballsy little thing. She was once at my house and tried to eat George's food, which he didn't mind, but he drew the line when she tried to kick his ass out of the room. I do believe it was one of the few times I ever have heard George growl. Miss you Chitzers. You were a crazy, cute, little beastie.

This was taken a couple of years ago at my house before I married Pup. Lorenzo looks crazy-happy about something. Me and Bella apparently wanted to take our leading ladies out for some air. Ha!

Looking at photos can make the grayest day better. I love my family and am so grateful for them. Smooches and love you guys.

Yes... family photos are fun. When my dad passed in 2000 I inherited all the old pics and albums. I scanned a lot but there are still a gazillion that need to be done and it's a huge and time consuming job. Someday.... someday....

These pics were great. I almost cried when I saw the pic of Nana.

You'll give me copies of them all, right?

Great photos -- pic of your mom so cute. And you don't need to be told that your daughters are lovely! But you always like to hear it, no?

Your family is beautiful.

That picture of you and then your mom's pic, is remarkable. You look a lot like her.

Love the cutie pie older relatives. They're all so dressed up.

And oh my goodness, that car, that car, that car. It is a thing of beauty.

You ooze cuteness, lady.

My father just passed this last summer. He left me his 59 Ford Fairlane 500. Its not a Galaxie, but it is just as beutiful! I intend to get a continental kit for it this winter. The car is gorgeous! Drive it proudly and enjoy that little piece of your father as I do with mine.

Happy Cruising!
