The Rita Chronicles

It's Mothers Day, and to celebrate with all of you, Grandma J wants  to share her Mother's Day Post from Mothers Day 2009.  The Rita Chronicles.  Some of you probably remember some of the memories I've shared, but I'd like to reminisce because Mother's Day  without  Rita is like apple pie without ice cream, or lawns without sprinklers.

So, please take a few moments to walk down memory lane with me as I remember some of my fondest memories of Rita.  And, please let me know which episode you liked the best....or not.

The Rita Chronicles  here.

 Happy Mothers Day to you, and you , and especially you! 

XOXO  Grandma J

What a beautiful photo of your Mom. I enjoyed the gas story about the Lincoln - maybe cause my dad always loved classic cars.

Hope you have a nice afternoon!

Happy Mother's Day Grandma J! Your Rita stories are the best. I don't think I had ever read the one about the Crossing Guard work before and I got a good laugh out of it. I think some of your grandbabies look like Rita in the beautiful sepia picture you posted, no?

Happy Mother's Day to you dear Grandma J. Your Rita stories were a hoot! ha! The gas story really made me laugh. That must have been quite a mess. I hope you had a nice day today. :)
