Leaving on a Jet Plane!



But I do know when we get back again.

I got to my mom's place right on schedule!  She was as pleased as punch to have me show up.

She told me not to 'mind' the smell in her house.  She is making saurkraut the OLD fashioned way.  Letting it ferment in a huge crock. 
We immediately jumped in her car and took off.  She wanted a new pair of jeans since all of her were so faded.

Can you imagine the fun I had getting her to try on neon purple 'skinny' jeans?  They fit, but she felt it was a bit bold for a 79 yr old woman.  We finally found some pants that felt and looked good.  The lady at the changing room couldn't believe mom was 79 and told her..."honey, if you got it, flaunt it!"

Seriously, my mom is not a made up beauty queen nor is she a primma donna.  She is a weather worn woman who is as down to earth as you can get.

She can't hear worth a damn any more so our conversations are a hoot.
"Mom, what time did you want to go to Sara's to drop off the dog?"
Her:  "I really liked that pizza we had tonight."
Me:  "Mom what time should we go with the dog?"
Mom:  "I think that was a good choice don't you?  We'll have fruit in the morning!"

Me.
Grinning like an idiot.  "Okay, fruit sounds great!"
Her:  "We'll take the dog to Sara's around noon tomorrow."
Pffft!

Seniors are cool, gotta give them that right?
