My profile photo is in honor of my mom, who taught me how to shop. She may not have been much into bargains as I, but oh, could that woman shop, browse, and find some really cool things. Sadly, she lost a battle with COPD and emphysema on 7/25/09 just one month after her 66th birthday.
This photo was taken of her and me at Block Island, in RI, when I was 4ish so late 70′s. It is one of the last photographs known in existence that my mother was looking at the camera and not scowling or holding up her hand to block the photo. She was NOT a fan of being photographed. I miss her like mad, and more each day.
