Happy Mother's Day!

I have the coolest mother around. She's nearly 90, and she's still 'on it' for an old broad.
This photo says it for me...although later today, I plan on submitting it to awkward family photos, under both the awkward family heading and  awkward pets (the duck!)
The photo was taken in the spring of 1956. I was the baby, happily oblivious to how weird my family was.
Check out my sister's dolls...she's got a black one and a white one. They were her twins. Later, as an adult, I commented to my mother how cool it was that she bought my sister a black doll and a white doll. She looked at me like I was an idiot, and simply said, "Why wouldn't I?"
Happy Mother's Day, Lois.
