Best wishes to your dear Mother on her birthday!

Her answer to your question will be interesting, I'm sure.

Happy birthday wishes to your mother.

I continue to be amazed how much you know about your family. It's wonderful, really. So, yes, please, ask her what she thought about that.

I am assuming that your grandparents would be about the same age as my parents. I would love to have met your grandpa. Tell your grandmother Happy Birthday.

Yep, that was a different generation. My father-in-law had the "movie star" looks with his wavy dark hair and suave ways. He also had the drinking thing down. Although he was cool, he was not the man my father was. That would be another story saved someday for my own blog.

Happy birthday to your Mom! You grandpa sounds an awful lot like my Uncle Bob.

Any man that looks like a combination of Robert Mitchum and Dean Martin is a handsome one!

I had a crush on Robert Mitchum when I was about 10 years old - still adore him. What a man he was. They just don't make them like your gramps and Mitchum any more.

Happy Birthday to your mom. Play-Doh?
