A beautiful Italian girl.....falls in love with an Irishman! (I don't know who the children are in this picture).I absolutely love this picture of them?
Mom and Dad Roberts.......WE MISS YOU! There are so many things I miss, but I will just mention, one funny memory about mom, for today.
I miss those times when I would come home to find that somehow, mysteriously, a load of laundry had gotten washed, dried and put neatly away in all of our drawers. The dead giveaway was that, mom was the only one who had a key to my house and another clue was the fact that.........when I did the laundry........everything didn't come out pink! Could it be? Was there some little fairy running around with PINK FAIRY DUST, changing all of our clothes into a beautiful shade of pink? I THINK NOT!
Little did mom know, that I washed most of our clothes in cold water with Woolite (especially all of Kasey's hot pink outfits), so they wouldn't fade on all the other clothes. I was notoriously known, for getting stains out and let's just say, I was very meticulous about my laundry. Anyway, I found out that sometimes mom would get bored and wander across the field to find something to do.
Even though, I did ask Andy to please get my house key back (I'm cracking up just thinking about it right now) I couldn't get mad at her because she really thought she was doing me a favor, while keeping herself busy at the same time.
I guess she was just used to being busy, after raising 8 kids, milking all those cows twice a day, plus cooking and cleaning and taking care of her family. I don't think she knew what to do with idle time on her hands, plus I think the diabetes started getting out of control at that time and that might have had something to do with it also.
Seriously though, if I had the chance to have her back......I would give her a key to my house and let her sneak over and do a load of laundry, just to make her happy! I know pink isn't really in these days, but hey, maybe we could start a new fad! ~wink wink~
I miss her very much, but I'm so thankful for the memories, that I will always have! (Next time I will write something about dad)!
