Was My Mother Hot, Or What???

Tonight we were invited to a BBQ at my cousin Toni's house in New Rochelle. Not only was the dinner great but the company was fantastic! What a great group of friends she has; in the group was a successful dog walking company owner, a high end marble and granite salesmen, two school vice-principals and my cousin's best friend of thirty years.

The conversation was great and it was nice to be among a group of interesting, intelligent, engaging, warm, life-loving individuals. The table conversation included discussing books, movies, plays, vacations, vocations, Teamsters and recent gambling trip to Las Vegas.
I want to move back to New York and BBQ with these people all summer!

Now about the photograph...

Toni had this picture of my mother in one of her photo albums. It was taken at Masten Lake, New York and my mother was in her mid-thirties. She was always tan, dripping in gold jewelry and she wore high heels everywhere she went. Including, as you can see, with a bathing suit.

I couldn't think of a better title because all I could say when I saw the picture was, "Holy shit, my mother was hot!"

Then when Ed looked at it, he said, "Boy, your mother was hooottt!"

And I actually think he dragged out the "hot" word.

Hedon said...

Wow! I had no idea people actually wore high heels everywhere. She was a hottie indeed.

Gil said...

Your Mom was definitely HOT, now I know where you get your beauty! She looks just like one of the ladies at a beach in Italy with the gold, high heels, book, beautiful tan, etc.

Thanks for all the comments!

Gil - Thanks for the compliment, but I have never in all my life, even at my youngest and thinnest, looked this good! But I'm glad I got her genes! lol

GiGi- love the "Bettie" comment. :)

Texas Trucker - I could spend the rest of my life at the gym and never look like this!

Hedon - I haven't worn heels in years - I'm not sure I could even walk on them anymore. But then again, I'm 5'8" so I'm an Amazon in heels, my mother is 5'4" so it does her good.

Bradburys - I will certainly tell her!
