Remembering my mom’s birthday with an Oldsmobile photo

RichC_SuadeCoat1976My mother’s birthday isn’t one that I mark with a blog post every year, but since I ran across this old photo of my mom in East Tawas Michigan, I set it aside (along with one from me in my new suede coat back in high school). I spotted the Kodachrome slide of Mom next to our 1958 Oldsmobile 98 two-door hardtop when searching for our old camping and family travel photos this past summer. I set it aside thinking that I might just include it someday … even though the photo was before my time and my memories.

I wish my mom and dad still around to celebrate special occasions like birthdays … she would have been 86 this year. Hm, who knew, my mom was this young once upon a time …and yikes … according to the other photo so was I!
