It's Mother's Day

It's  Mothers Day flowers from Alaska! We went to Costco on Saturday and I told Manolie to choose what she would like for her Mothers Day.  She chose things for me and for the children instead.

      Mona Sabalones Gonzalez There are such beautiful, lush, seashore, hills, etc. in the Philippines, too. We know we are blest to live in the USA where some 50% of our national parks are within 500 miles of where we live. How about a Hub with some of you own recent photos?

      Dora Isaac Weithers I suspect that, if other Hubbers would post some of their recent photos, we would get a sneak peek at what their most recent interests are. Perhaps you and others will try it?

      Far out Demas! It is great to get to know a bit about your very handsome family. Nuts and fruits are my faves. Utah is just plain beautiful. I used to go up there a lot when I raced on a circuit.

      Thanks for sharing your photos and family.
