Photo Theme. Join the blogroll. Visit participants.

This is one of my favourite baby pictures with me and my mom. It was taken over 30 New Year's Eves ago. I don't really have any MEMORY of it being taken, but from the look on my face I must have been pretty wary of that roman candle. Two generations later.....

and that picture takes on new meaning, as it reminds me of a time when the image I had of my mother was of a much younger and physically stronger person.

“Time is free, but it's priceless. You can't
own it, but you can use it. You can't keep
it, but you can spend it. Once you've lost it
you can never get it back.”

Here's to my mom and moms in general! Happy Photohunting Folks!

Lovely memories. It's always heartwarming to remember how our mothers have been there with us through the years and made every moment special. Thanks for sharing. Mine is up too.

Great photo -- I love your expression there with the roman candle.

(BTW, I'm not sure if the Dippity-Doo they have now is the same as when I was a kid, but I would think so. Neat that they still make it.)

Caylynn said...

Excellent pictures Angelo.
I always enjoy photos of people smiling and having a good time.

Yeah I remember watching Davey and Goliath when I was growing up.
It's amazing how different cartoons are now a days.
