March 13: Happy birthday, Mot!


Happy birthday to my mother, Betty, who was known to my sister and I as Mot, though I’m not sure I remember exactly how that came about. She would have been 88 today.

I’ve already written about my mother extensively, and will write about her again in next month’s A to Z Challenge. Suffice it to say, everyone in her family misses her very much!

  4. I love old photos and your tribute. Strangely, I call my mother ‘Mod’…. coincidences, abound! (We seem to have a lot of those lol…)

  5. I doubt we’ll ever know the whole story. All the principal players are dead, and any surviving aunts and uncles with firsthand knowledge are approaching senility. At any rate, I wrote about the whole thing here:
