Today is Happy Birthday Day

Today is my dear Mother's birthday. She would have been 83 today. We lost her in 1999. She was such a great mother. The kind of mother children dream of having. Annie is named after her....Annie Betty Jo Bunny. Her name is Betty Jo and her nickname was Bunny. Dad gave her that nickname on their first date. She only ate a salad, no doubt being shy, and he gave it to her. She was called Bunny for the rest of her life. My cousins called her Aunt Bunny. I miss her very much.

It is also my dear husband's 57th birthday.

He received cards from me and Stephanie this morning. Plus he wanted a new fishing pole and I found just what he wanted.
Happy Birthday JoJo. We love you!
