Mom in her younger years… she smoked for a long time, and I was happy when she finally stopped at age 43, of course it took a heart attack to make it happen. My mom was caring, she would give you the shirt off her back, or her last. But never mistake that caring, or kindness for a weaknesd. She would shut you down in a cowboy second. As I have stated, my mom was the strongest person I have known in my life. May you rest in peace strong woman. I love and miss you.
How I miss mom’s smile. But life goes on right. Just another day of her feeling like she was on top of the world. Always a good time spent. I am so blessed, that we got the time as mother and daughter spent. Much love mom.
Mom’s oldest, my sister. Outside of my apartment. Not sure what we were doing that day, or if it was before they moved here, or just visiting me; either way I like this photo of them. Mom I miss you. And love you.
So today got the notion to try some bbq, I have tried Bill Millers, and it was crap. So today went for the one down the street from the apartments. Branch Bbq, I got two plates, one for me, one for my dad.
This was the 5 meat sampler. Rib,sausage, brisket,pork loin,chicken, two sides, beans potato salad,coleslaw. Cherry pie and pecan pie. Spent 50 bucks to see if it was good. The out come was 😝👎👎. We sampled it all, and the only decent thing was the chopped beef. The other things were flavorless. It was bland and dry. Nothing spectacular about the pies, and well fifty bucks tossed in the trash. I definatly will not go back there. Even the sauce could not save this bland bbq. Moving on. Will try others along the way. To be continued…
She was so happy this day;was the day her first born grand son graduated high school. This Bob Cat was a shining star in her eye this day. I am so happy she got to see these things. Love you mom.
In bloom. Taken last spring, when the Bluebonnets were in high form and bloom. Mom loved the season change, when the blue bonnets were vivid in the hill country. A photo of her and her husband in the blue bonnets. I am going to miss that with her. But I have a photo, and the memories of that amazing day. I love you mom, may there be many blooming and vivid flowers for you.
A day at the Capitol, This was the first trip that I took with her and my stepdad when they came to visit me In September of 2013. She loved going down to the Capitol, her and I were alike, when it came to exploring new places. I remember several times going to the Capitol with her, we finally even ate at the Capitol Grille a couple of times. These are the very good memories that I will keep.
