I didn't have time to scan all the photos I wanted to scan in order to post a "proper" Sepia Saturday entry this week about my family's history, but since tomorrow is Mother's Day, I felt I had to do something to mention my own Mom.
As I've said so many times lately on this blog, my mother recently died. Sorry to keep referencing her passing, but it's obviously something that would have a huge effect on my life... and I know -- "know," not assume" -- that virtually all my readers understand.
I set up at a local flea market every Sunday, selling various collectibles. This will be the first year I don't have to rush to my mother's place afterwards to give her a card, buy her a meal -- the last few years she kept saying "Don't keep giving me gifts. You kids will have too much junk to get rid of after I'm gone!" -- or whatever to celebrate "her" day.
In other words, this year's Mother's Day is gonna kinda suck.
Nevertheless, Happy Mother's Day, Mom.

Thanks for your time.
