Happy Birthday, Mother!

Today is a very special day, and I would like to share it with you.  This day, Tuesday, September 24, 2013 would have been my mother's 101st birthday.  When she passed away in August of 2011, she was only five weeks away from celebrating her 99th. 

Mother loved to fish, and she especially loved rainbow trout.  We're a long way from Hamilton, Texas, but we celebrated her birthday by doing something she would have enjoyed immensely.  We went fishing in some lovely small lakes in Custer State Park and brought home our limit of beautiful rainbows.  Happy Birthday, Mother!  I think you were with us in spirit when we caught them and I hope you'll be with us when we enjoy them for dinner in your honor.

We love and miss you.
