1.  A tribute by Geraldine to her Mom on Mother's Day is found at
2.  My mother (1911-1999) died at age 88.  I can see her now, sitting in her aging rocker, a half-way cooled cup of coffee with sugar and lots of cream on the chair's arm, ready and waiting for watching her favorite college football team, the University of Nebraska ( Go Big Red!!! ) Corn Huskers.
3.  Pictured above is my beagle dog, Adi, and a wooden lawn caricature of 'Harry Husker' who was one of the Nebraska Team's former mascot. (link to mascot info blog).  Both Adi and I are fans of the University Nebraska football team.

Fun and touching too Jim. Love the cartoon mascot!

Thanks for linking to my "mom" tribute. I loved reading about your mom too. I could see her sitting with that lukewarm coffee, as I read your words.

Hope you have a wonderful week, G

Hi Dr Jim :) Yes, all the Oriental language characters are the same so if a person can read one then he can read something written in the other. But I'm totally illiterate in the Oriental language. I can speak only the simple Oriental words. I can't read nor write the Oriental language. HaHa!
