Wednesdays With My Mom

Darling Mom, darling little June.

Below, Andy says, "Hey...don't even think about leaving me here to babysit." Hee-hee.
On this day last week, we went to Costco to pick up a couple of things and of course had to have our favorite...pizza, before we left.
And then, on another day I was able to give these two books to my mom that I ordered from Amazon. She had recently seen both on Television and was asking about the books. She mentioned how much she would love to read the stories behind them.

I snapped this of her just as we were leaving to go back to her place. So sweet.

Cute pictures of your mom and June. She looks just like a model.

I have never been to a Costco, but I have heard they are like a Sams and those are nice.

Awwww you are so sweet to get your mom a couple of books she was wanting to read. I bet she will really enjoy them.

HI!!!
Your MOM pics are always so cute and ajoy to look at!!! I have that Sound Of Music Book, I bought it in Vermont at the Von Trapp Lodge, it is something to visit if ever in Vermont!!!! I think they chose to live in Vermont as it looks like their home in Austria, well I ahve never been to Austria, but I would think it does, we were there in summer, fall must be amazing!!! And a white winter!!!!
hugs,
jamie

I'm transported back to the '50's and advertisements for housekeeping products (that was what models modeled for back then, right?) when I see these FABULOUS shots of Wilma. Think of it, "Use Bon Ami and you'll have plenty of time to spend caring for your home and family!" Did she ever model, even on a local level? Did she ever once, just once, look like a schlub for the day, or the morning, or a minute?

Your mom looks happy ~ I'm sure spending time with you makes her that way!
She'll love the Sound of Music book ~ the Von Trapp family had a very interesting life. The movie is one of my very favorites.

Mmmmm...love Costco pizza AND their very berry sundaes! But never on the same day 'cause that would be bad!

What I wouldn't do to have beautiful ankles like your Mom-LOL! I have never eaten at Costco because I'm usually so exhausted after walking around there for hours but I will take your advice and try the pizza next time! I'm sure your Mom will enjoy the books...you are so sweet!
