It is!

She just posted this on Facebook, she really is happy! The five roses are for each of my mom's five children.

Are you guys fighting about who is the biggest rose?

For Christmas my sisters, friends, and I put together the money to get my mom a tattoo and booked her an appointment. She's had a horrible, faded tattoo on her shoulder for decades. At one time it was a poorly executed wreath of wisteria, but by the time she was in her mid 30s it was an unidentifiable blob. She's always hated it, but there was always something more important to spend her money on than getting it fixed. I was really excited to give her this gift. She finally got it done today, and it looks awesome!



TSQ, your mom's tattoo is beautiful. I know you said she got it to cover an old tattoo and the roses represent her children, is there any more significance to the tattoo? Why she chose this one? Just wondering, the Mexican Sugar Skull is a very interesting choice.

Naw, my sisters are too busy fighting about pretty much everything else in the universe, and I'm too busy being 3000 miles away, thank the lord.

I don't know why she chose it, and was actually surprised myself. In the past when she'd talked about getting the cover up she had mentioned a lot of things, but this never came up. I was expecting her to go with a turtle, which she'd talked about a lot in the past; she's Turtle Mountain Band Chippewa.

The key is a Pagan Nordic Key to Heaven, which she and I both wear on necklaces, and which is also incorporated, although in a more subtle way, into one of my tattoos.

Any grown adult who can still display a rubber duckie and do so with pride has my respect.

Not just any rubber duckie; it's a tea-duckie:

I wanted to show this off so badly. This is my five year old niece, Gabby, watching "I Love Lucy," and absolutely loving it. She's watching the William Holden episode at the exact moment when Lucy's nose is set ablaze.

Re: PICTURE POST II!

Nice. It's never too early to introduce a child to the wonders and fun of classic television. That's inspiring.

This is her first time watching. She's going to love the grape stomping and the candy factory episodes so much. I can't wait.

That's so great you're introducing her to "I Love Lucy". This is the best time. Getting up to 7-8 years old, kids start to get pulled in by the high tech cartoons and all this vintage stuff begins to look really old in comparison--hard to get them to give it a try. But if you get them exposed early, they can appreciate it.
