MISHA: Thanks for popping over and for commenting!

STEPHANIE: Thanks for your comment - it was a surprisingly difficult interview as I needed to get a mix of personal and general interest stuff. Glad you enjoyed!

Lovely picture.
My childhood friend and I were just discussing this morning how we couldn't imagine our mums working out and even wearing workout clothes when they were our age. My mom was a dress and pearls woman.

Your mum looks wonderful, Judy! I still miss mine so much.

ANN: The photo gives a good idea of how much fun my Mom has - she has a knack of lighting up any function (and she LOVES Christmas so is always hyper when it comes to opening presents!) My Mom is more red hat and purple shows then dress and pearls!

FRANCES: I don't even want to think of the time when either of my folks are not here -I've instructed them that they have to live to 120, because then I'll be too old to miss them!
