A Bit of Nostalgia
...some of the things they thought mom wanted or needed.


(click on pictures to enlarge)
Of course Mother looks good!  Who wouldn't after slaving away with all those appliances...especially the wringer washing machine

But before you go spending money on expensive appliances, a woman has to know how to cook.   That's why it's important that they have some lessons like Peggy did, about making stuff like real mayonaise.

Now if Mom is mature and ready for some thing dangerous luxurious....straight from a man's world, buy her a Chrysler.

.....or a Mercury because women want a car strictly for beauty and comfort.

That's why car dealers are offering classes for women ....but nothing too technical.

Just be careful  to take away those car keys and keep your distance if she's having one of her black days!

Now for a bit of mother humor from the past.....

Oh yeah, Mom looks like a party animal!!

The talk I'm glad my mother Rita never had with me.   Seriously.....whose mother did?
And lastly.......

Grandma J thinks her suit is kind of cute, but do you know a man or boy who would wear one of these suits?

Happy Mother's Day to all the blogging moms!!

and if I borrowed one of your photos, thank you.
