Was Mrs Rupert in The Exorcist?
Looks like her head could do a 360.

You guys just like picking on me. I don't take it personal......I'm sure no one really thinks I'm insane...well, maybe Mrs Rupert...and Otis.

Also, in your post about the lovely young lady, you didn't mention squirrels or Velveeta once. It was unsettling!
This may be a good time to agree that, int he last two pages, at least, you didn't mention squirrels or Velveeta once. Most peculiar.

Been gone all afternoon to visit my Mom.....(just got out of prison?)

Just before I left I snapped this of Mrs Rupert on the pretense of a photo of her new boots. Now, it wasn't her body in that "fishy shot"...but trust me, it could have been.....and she'll be 70 in July! Old Rupert has taken damn good care of Mrs Rupert all these years!

Unretouched.....Nice boots, I got them for her for Christmas. Lucky I'm a damn handsome guy or I would never have had a chance with Mrs Rupert!



She looks great to me...but Otis, who is not a Mrs Rupert fan said the best he could do for her was....


BTW-My Mom made us grilled cheese.....yep, with Velveeta...and bacon! Delicious!

We seem to be talking a lot lately about what we aren't talking about.


I'm not so big on that 'V' word stuff, but a thick slice of bacon (or three or eight) is waiting for me.


BFN!

You are blessed to still have your mom, but I'm not telling you something you don't already know.
I remember my mom making breakfast.
Biscuits in the oven, skillet of bacon, eggs fried in the bacon fat, tops of the eggs cooked by flipping hot grease over them,
And then, oh my, her milk gravy...........
Most of all I miss her love and hugs.

Yes, It is not all that common to still have your Mom at my age...and she is in very good health and her mind is as sharp as it ever was. We had a good visit with her yesterday and left feeling like we need to go see her a lot more often...though I call almost every day.

It is also unusual to have a Mom almost 90 years of age that is in no way feeble, in need of assistance, or dependent on others to make her decisions and chart her days. She is most definitely strong willed and the matriarch of the family....always has been. My Dad was a Bird Colonel, a large and powerful man, accomplished and well educated....but no one doubted the leader of the pack was my Mom. She is Irish and proud of it......and has instilled that same self confidence in all of us...along with a healthy dose of defiance.

Yesterday we briefly hit on politics...and found we were in disagreement this year. She turned to Mrs Rupert and said..."I did the best I could at raising him, but he was always just like me, sometimes a little short in some areas........looks like this is one of those times." And that was the end of the politics. She cut me down, but in a way that left room for my views.

You can't ever replace those can you. My Mom has always been there for me, right or wrong, sick or well, my Mom has never abandoned me....threatened a good many times to oust me from the family...but never once failed to be the first at my side in time of need.

Those of you that do still have your Mom, stay close, say thanks for her and cherish her with your love. Let her know you are who you are because she is who she is.

We stopped at Aldis on the way and I got her a dozen of these.....wonderful little boxes of delicious quick snacks...she loves Tuna/Chicken salad, and these are delicious! I also got her a big bouquet of lavender shades of Spring flowers....her favorite colors. Let you Mom know you think of her!

Six crackers, a can of delicious chicken/tuna salad...and a tiny spoon! All in a neat box...for $1.!!!!

Yeah, I got a little carried away on my Mom....but you know how it is with your Mom, you can's say enough good about her.

I'm normally more shy and reserved about posting, but when it comes to my Mom I break free of it.

Regards!
