Mothers' Day

 
April, 2013
 
A nice lunch with my daughter and the two kids at Fire and Ice Restaurant in Middlebury, VT, was a good way to celebrate Mother's Day.  We got together on Saturday to avoid standing in a waiting line with hungry children.



My son was not able to attend.  He spent this weekend taking the motorcycle safety course.





Now there is a perfect Mother's Day gift--the idea that your child is contemplating a motorcycle.  So what if he is in his forties and doesn't actually need my permission.





I hope it was a wonderful day for everyone.

  2. I had a great day, too, and even planted some flowers in Denver. I used to love visiting Middlebury, a lovely town. Glad your day was special Olga.

    1. I lived in Middlebury for two years--a transition period in my life that I would not care to repeat, But Middlebury itself--I loved it. I would move back there in a heart beat.

  3. Sounds like a wonderful way to spend time with your daughter and grandkids!

    At least your son is taking a safety course, and not simply buying a motorcycle. Seems to suggest you taught him right.

    Have a great week!

  5. Motorcycles frighten me! The safety course is a good idea, though. Glad you enjoyed your day!

  6. Be grateful he is taking the course. I took it and it is wonderful. It gives you the tools to keep out of problems before they happen. Smart cycling is safe cycling.
    Glad you had such a nice Mother's Day.

  7. Glad you had a wonderful Mother's Day and that your son is wise enough to learn motorcycle safety. I love motorcycles and my sister rides but I would never ride one out here -- just not safe!

  8. We avoid restaurants on actual holidays. Much better to go a day early or a day late!

  9. Glad you got together, good idea on going on Saturday to avoid the crowds. I wouldn't be thrilled about the motorcycle either, but I think its like most other things in life...responsible people will be OK. The crazies...depend highly on luck. Taking the safety course is a good start.

    1. Mike's business was restoring antique motorcycles and he had and rode many over the years. My son is cautious, safety-conscious, but he just does not have that intuitive mechanical sense that allows him to became as if one with the machine. That's the thing that worries me.
