MIxed bag

Its been a busy week and I have been a bad blogger. Sorry for not getting around more. Here are a couple pics of Mom and my brother going to his daughters for Mothers Day. I just wanted you to see that she does get out of her robe and cleans up quite well! lol. She will be 80 in Nov. and I dont think she looks it at all.


You can see the bruise on her chin where she fell and her arm is in the sling. We go to the Doctor tomorrow to see what they will do with her arm. They told my brother they will put another cast on and it will be on for 8 weeks! She also has pins in it. I wonder if they will put her to sleep to take the pins out. I certainly hope so.

This is some friends of mine who I went to school with. We got together for drinks one night this week.The one on the left lives here, the one in the middle lives in Las Vegas and when he comes in we all get together and have a few drinks and reminisce about old times. The one on the right lives in West Virginia. We have an alumni reunion coming up this summer, which we all plan to attend. I have a great time with these guys, a lot of laughs and a lot of fun memories.I love getting together with old friends. They are the best. None of the wives come to these get togethers...lol..I dont really know their wives, its always been just me and the guys. we discuss all kind of things, nothing is taboo. Its just good fun with old friends. And I guess for that night...I am one of the guys! lol

Good to hear your Mom is Ok. I'm sure they will put her to sleep to take the pins out. That's great that you have these get togethers with old friends, sounds like fun.

PS Glad you're back, I missed you.

Your Mom sure doesn't look 80, and it's nice to see her smiling. The guy in the middle of the bottom picture looks like a lot of fun, but the one on the right looks a little worried!

I can't believe your mom still has that nasty bruise! I hope she won't need a cast for another 8 wks- how annoying!

Sounds like a fun get-together with friends from high school!

Awesome friendships are irreplaceable.

I don't think that they take the pins out. I think that they leave them in.

80 is the new 60, I think.

Catch,
Your mom looks no worse for the wear. ;-) It they take the pins out, they most likely will do so without anestesia. It's not painful....well maybe a little "funny" feeling.
It's good for the soul to get together with former friends (you'll notice I didn't use the O word)and remember the good times.

Nice photos Catch! Your mom is beautiful. Now I know where you get your looks from! :)

Your mother looks like she is a lot of fun to be around. I guess the acorn does not fall far from the tree.
I bet you and the other "guys" have a ball. It is always fun to spend time with old close friends. Thanks for sharing

It's so cool that you meet up with old friends from high school...and without their wives!!! *LOL*
