Mrs. Nesbitt's ABC Wednesday Round 4 has progressed to P. Click on link or banner to see how other bloggers have interpreted it.
Sunday will be Mothers' Day. The photo below is of Pearl, my mother, and of me, Phyllis, on the last Mothers' Day that we enjoyed together. The year was 1983, and Mama turned 90 the following November. She died in early 1984.
The day that Otto snapped this picture doesn't seem like very long ago to me, but now I am looking forward to my 88th birthday in August, just two years short of the age of Pearl in this photo.
Below is one of the few snapshots I could find of Pearl's mother Pauline. Here Grandma Sitzler holds me, baby Phyllis. What a difference modern camera's have made in our ability to record and remember our precious moments! I have no pictures of Grandma Pauline and Mama Pearl together, although they hardly let a week go by without long visits with one another, even when they lived in towns two hours apart (by Model T).
I posted this studio portrait of Pauline just a few weeks ago, but, in case you didn't see it, here it is again. It's nice to see a face to go with that rear view above!
