Mmmmm: conclusion: part 9: M is for Miscellaneous

M is for Miscellaneous. These are the Ms that didnt quite fit into a category...unlike mah-jongg and mustangs which kinda straddled a couple.

Money. Something just about everyone loves...a necessity in this day and age. With the economy the way it is, it's something everyone is wanting and dont always have enough of.

This time of year, my mind drifts to Mistletoe. Oh how I miss our home back in Texas because we had this huge tree in the front yard that had mistletoe growing wild in its branches. Mistletoe also brings to mind other things. Things like.....

...moustaches and mouths....particularly of the handsome man Im living with. I love moustaches on most guys. Most, not all, some actually look better cleanshaven...but not many.



I could've cheated and said my family, but I decided to just choose the few that actually fit the theme. Mimi's real name actually started with an M also...so she fits in twice. This picture was taken in the early 70's....I believe she was in her 50's at the time. She's the one that passed on January 2007. I miss her.

M also is for mom. This picture was taken in 1981. I remember the day perfectly. It was so hot that day that I changed my mind on what I wanted to wear for our family picture and mom got really mad at me. All I knew is the dress I had intended to wear was too warm for standing around in, nevermind the 1/4 miles walk in the 90 degree temperatures and then the ride on the non-air conditioned bus to and from the studio we were going to. She ended up wearing this really pretty sundress and I borrowed one of her others.

Finally, M is for ME!! Sorry about that shameless self promotion, but if you knew my whole story you'd be proud that I said that. It's taken me 5 years to get to the point of actually being able to say it.

Great way to finish off the letter M. I'll never look at that letter the same again. I may dream about a letter M chasing me tonight. Or a giant glass of milk.

I'm SO glad you included yourself in this list. These years with your hubby have really helped you find yourself and get to a place where you are happy with yourself and your life. You have a right to be proud!

Me thinks Ladystyx has done a Magnificent job both with the letter "M" and with her coming to terms with the place she is in with life today.

I find it intriguing that Sesame Street started in 1969...and now Ladystyx could be a consultant there...with her mastery of the letter "M" alone...
