My mom is 92 this year.
She drives a car with mag rims and a rear spoiler, and just got a new PC with high speed internet (checks her FaceBook account every day :-).
She shops at the mall for shoes and she looks amazingly elegant in anything she wears…
and she keeps her home in Palm Coast Fla. so clean I can eat off the floor in any room.
I took this a few weeks ago when we visited. No touch-ups, straight from the camera.
And though you can’t see cause it’s round the back, there’s places where her natural auburn hair is growing back.
Her sister Marion in Michigan is 94
Does a gene pool get any better than that??

I had to share this cause she’s awesome.
Hope it doesn’t make her blush…
OK, so what if it does :-)

    great subject…you captured her essence perfectly

  • Thanks for that Richard, capturing her essence was probably the easiest thing I`ve done in ages… just had to point the camera :-)

    It is uncanny how you look like her BB… what a doll a real ‘lady’ indeed. Love the little story about her and home. Her smile radiates satisfaction!

  • How can you say we look alike Lina? My hair is COMPLETELY different !!
    But yeah, she is a total doll and they just don`t make real ladies like her anymore. She needs to live another 30 years at least to remind the next generation of that :-)
    Thanks for feeling the rads !

    My God, does she look great for her age? I’m happy for you that she enjoys such good health.

  • The guy who sold her the car refused to believe she`s over 90. Blew him right outa the room !!
    Her secret`s easy Lacitrouille… she eats plenty of fruit with her chocolates and peanut butter and salted pretzels, and has her hair done once a week. Piece of cake :-)

    My gene pool is also good like this! This is absolutely wonderful :) What a sweet thing to read, made me smile :) Thank you for sharing..

  • Amazing what a difference a gene pool can make, yeah?
    Don`t even think I could manage to dilute it… not that I didn`t try…
    Cheers for the smiles !!

    Wow that’s terrific. A beautiful dedication to a beautiful lady Billy. Congrats to your dear Mom who you resemble a lot by the way, Marion on her 94 years and Melanie on her (soon to be) new addition to your amazing family gene pool! Beautiful photos. (Chanel – Nice job!)
    Love Colleen2012

  • I had this picture on FB but as she doesn`t have an account (she`s SO much more sensible than her son :-), I posted it here so she could see the result of our photo shoot. And I`m glad I did cause now she can see all these amazing comments like yours Colleen.
    As for Melanie, the Chanel thing is definitely a good gig. We all use the products, which is why even though I`m bad to the bone at least I smell good.
    Love backatcha !!

    Time to get Mom a modeling contract! Beautiful hair!

  • Cool you noticed the hair Barbara. The absolute crowning glory.
    Sadly, her hairdresser of some 30 years who took loving care of her crown since she moved to Palm Coast in the early eighties went into retirement shortly before our visit… so he passed the buck to his assistant. To whom I remove my hat as it`s now possibly only Obama who currently holds a more important position.
    But her first gig turned out well (with inevitable post salon adjustments), so yeah, bring on the contract. Business as usual :-))

    Dear Billy, It was sweet of you to put your dear old Mom on Redbubble, and yes, I am blushing!
    I’ve been fortunate in maintaining good health. Perhaps it’s because you keep me laughing and waiting to see what brainstorm you’ll come up with next!!

    All my love, Momoxo

  • Funkymom, there is no WAY I wasn`t going public with this one.
    Of course there wasn`t one of those pictures in which you didn`t look awesome, but somehow this one spoke to me in such a big way that I had to shout it.
    You are as gorgeous as you are amazing and judging by these comments I`m not the only one who sees it !
    And if it`s my brainstorms that help keep you fit, then I`m really glad customs didn`t confiscate the bones :-))
    All my love and big hugs right backatcha !!
    ♥XOX♥
