Can I be Mom?

This is a picture of my mom, back in 1973. She is younger than I am now, in this picture. Isn't she gorgeous? Well, she still is! She's tall, blonde and has green eyes. None of the above have been given to me...LOL.

If I'm not mistaken this was taken in Washington D.C., in front of Capitol?
I was with her that time, a little girl, first time in USA. We went to New York where her sister lives and then to D.C. where we have a lot of relatives. I have about four or five cousins, whom I haven't had news since then! I should get in touch, really, hahaha!

It was mommy's birthday yesterday. Unfortunately I was working, but she came to work and we had lunch and after work we came home and watched Live8! She loved The Who and Pete. She always does. That's why she's my mom and I love her so!!!

On the way home we had the biggest laugh of our lives. I can't explain why, it's very Greek and an inside joke, but everytime we remember it we still are in stitches! With my mom I always laugh the most.
That's why she's my mom and I love her so!!!

I finally managed to visit lots of blogs this morning! The rest I'll do tonight, we're going out now!
I'm happy the time has-a-changed to summer time! Yeah! It'll get dark at 8 now and after May at 10pm! I love it!

I haven't abandoned my album reviews, I'm just thinking of dedicating a whole new blog for them, which will be updated very regularly... I just want to find a cool template backround for it.
Also, I'm thinking of chucking away the Quiiiiit blog, I haven't got anything to write anymore. It's going so well, I forgot about it!

Have a fun Sunday, everyone.

Wowza she's a Greek goddess!
Happy belated birthday to her!
That's fantastic that you're still not smoking. How do you feel?
Do you still crave them?

Dear Marietta

What a lovely photo of your dear Mum!
My Mum has black hair, brown eyes & is 2 inches taller than me. I have blue eyes & blonde hair & am the shortest of 4 kids!

It's good to hear that you are having a good time together. Wish your Mum a Happy Birthday for me!

It doesn't happen very often for me, but I love to be spoiled by my mother, too.
In August I am flying to Montreal to visit my parents for 2 weeks at their beautiful home on a lake in the Laurentian Mountains north of the city.
I'll be taking my 9 year old son & 8 year old daughter. My husband & 15 year old daughter are staying home because they have to work.
I can't wait!

Good to hear that you don't need the Quiiiit! blog any more. I'm sure it helped at the time.
My husband quit about 12 years ago, cold turkey, & has never looked back. Good for you - what a great decision you made!

Thanks for visiting &, if I'm not working, I'll see you in the Chat.

Hey Marietta. Thanks for stopping by. Tell your mum she is gorgeous. She reminds me of one of the singers in the New Seekers. (a group from the 70s) Congrats on your Attic winn, too. I think you need to hide me in your suitcase when you go!

Thanks for the invite to the pre-convention drinks. I'm not sure yet, but not coming up til the Saturday morning but will definitely see you there. With my "old wife"

Hugs and kisses

Summer time sounds like very strange.We don't have summer time in Japan.

Smiles between you and your Mum makes me happy,too.
Please send my regards to her.

OH! I may go Beaulieu National Motor Museum on July 3rd if I can take 9days off.

Hi Marietta,
First of all, happy birthday to your mum! She is very beautiful, and reminds me of Kate Hudson in that picture.

Congrats on quitting the Quiiit! blog. You must be so proud.

I have been catching up with all your excitement. First of all, Happy birthday to Mom. She is beautiful. Second, Congratulations on your attic win! I have not been able to watch at all this season. I liked it when the loop went for 24 hours, then I could always catch it. Third, congrats on being finished with smoking. Best advice I can give is never touch one again. They got me again after having stopped for 11 years. You'll do great though, I know it. Talk to you soon!

Mary Beth said...

What a beautiful picture! My mom is the same - she looks so pretty in all the old photos. I think there's something about old pictures - everyone looks so glamourous in them!

Mark T said...

Hi Marietta, there is a 95% chance of us being there tomorrow. Just depends if Jill gets here work done in time. I'll text you one way or the other. Take care. Mark

Hey babe! WOW It is nutty with Charlotte still here. We have been non-stop since coming back from LA! I even threw a baby shower tonight if you can believe that! I will not know what to do with myself when she leaves!

Invitation is open to come stay with me when you come out. not sure where you want to see the show with your tickets you won....LOL Guess I could just go read the blog! We could travel around together! It would be a blast and I would love it.

Talk to you when things die down here. Chat next week for sure!
