Happy Mothers Day Mom! May 14, 2017

No Shadow Shots for Sunday....
just Mothers Day Memories.... 
Mom and I in early 1943
I was born 10 months after Pearl Harbor...    
I think this was taken in mid-1944
Mom, Dad and I in 1946? 1947?
Until 1949 I had my parents all to myself-
mostly my Mom because of the war.
My dad had been shipped out to New Guinea.
My mother was the best...but then weren't
all our mother's the best?
 Happy Mothers Day!
