    Mother's Day.

    It's Mothers Day in OZ today.

    I lost my mum this week. Cherish them while they are here and never forget them when they are not.

    Happy Mothers Day to all.

    In great shape other than a bit of lower back pain. Her Dad died at 98, and her Mom at 104. Played tennis into her 80's.

    She's in the US. She has a lot of friends in the DC area, and used to play tennis daily at the Army Navy Country Club there. I am lucky in that I have two siblings very close by.

    A long distance family can be a killer.

    My old mum lived a long way from us,but my kids used to make the effort to get to see her as often as they could. I am very proud of them.

    Sorry to hear about your mum croc, I had set my phone on reminder mode to call my mum and the alarm went of as planned at 9.00 this morning, it's not that I don't think of my old mum it's just that in Laos you don't tend to get any reminders of mothers day ,anyway called her and she was well chuffed, next called the wife (coz I'm at work in the jungle as usual)and got her and the kids to have a natter with her on Skype, sorted

    ^^We're lucky in the sense that we lived as a long distance family, with either my parents, or two or three of the kids living abroad at any given time. So, before cell phones and the internet, communication was hard, and rare considering some of the places we lived. Now I have an older brother and wife, and a younger sister with husband and one of her kids, who live very close to my Mom and see her all the time. Another brother lives on the West Coast, but calls frequently, as do I.

    Just rung my mum to wish her a happy mothers day.

    Now she thinks i'm drunk.

    Apparently it was mothers day in England about a month ago.
