MOTHER MEMORIES: My favorite picture of my mother, riding shotgun in a Jeep in India during Army service in World War II.

I can see the commenting function is working to some degree. I know there are some hitches and we’re at work on them. But let’s try again to have an open line.


It’s turned into a fine Mother’s Day. Memories anyone?

My mother wasn’t a memorable cook (she was a hospital dietitian by training, so ….) But I remember her sewing my often-split pants; typing up an application on deadline for a scholarship when I was going to blow it off; her perfect cursive handwriting; her self-made life from overnight shift work in college to volunteering for Army duty in India in World War II, when she met my dad.


I probably should mention Betty Mueller Brantley was a registered Republican but loved me anyway. And vice versa.
