The Birthday Girl

Today is my mom's birthday.

She one of those unique adventurers who seeks and often invents challenges for herself.  Before marrying my dad, she traveled to Ireland and stunned all of our relatives with her scandalous mini-skirt, and just two years ago she flew to Ghana and spent a week with me at the SOS Village in Tema.

With a PhD in Education, she taught school until she and my dad decided to move from Montana to California to attend law school.

Thus far, she's been a nun, a teacher, a lawyer, an investor, and a telephone operator.

Born and raised in Butte, Montana, she's never lost the true character of a feisty Mining City girl.    I don't know anyone who enjoys good books, political debates, and red wine more than Mary Kay.

She and her three brothers are planning to meet up in Vegas later this month.  They will be seeing some shows, but the true goal is to play some slots.  She will win big.  She always does.
