It’s All Maya!

If Life is an illusion, then why do I keep banging my head against the wall?

Si la Vie est une illusion, pourquoi je n'arrête pas de me taper la tête sur les murs?

One of several cakes mom’s had for her birthday!

It doesn’t seem like it was already a year ago we were celebrating my mother’s 90th birthday with family and friends who had flown in from all over to celebrate.  Even the mariachi band we hired had to come in from Chicago. (There isn’t a mariachi band in Pittsburgh, what’s with that?)  Her 5 children, many of her grand-children, and great-grand-children were there as well.

Mom, after her flower arrangement class she took a few weeks ago. The bouquet she made!

This celebration today is going to be a lot quieter, but mom will be doing one of her favorite pastimes – playing the slot machines at the casino.  Now all she has to do is hit the big one today and it will definitely be a birthday to remember!

Go Mom!

Maya Muses:  Good luck, mom!  I wish I could be there with you today.  Love and miss you, and Happy Birthday!!!

    Be sure to tell your mom Happy Birthday and that I think she’s some kind of lady…wow!

    I can only hope if I get to be your mom’s age that I’ll be just as active as she is. What an amazing woman! Happy belated birthday to her and I wish her many more.
