Happy Mother's Day, everyone

Happy Mother's Day, all. My fellow potter-blogger Tracey Broome inspired this post with her own of her fine daughter and musician Wes. I thought I'd post a few photos of the mothers around us and the children that make them mothers. We're off in a moment for a Mother's Day lunch with Dee's mom, Jan Potter Dorchester, and with Dee's dad, Doug Dorchester.
So, here we go. At top, our son Marcus as a proud young fisherman on Martha's Vineyard, holding a scup he caught (or maybe Doug caught) on a fishing trip with his grandfather. Next, Dee and Marcus and his wife Anastasia, on their neatly gardened front yard in Seattle. Below that, Marcus and Anastasia with a wartime black-and-white image of the young lovers Doug and Jan. Then Jan a couple of years ago with a rapidly diminishing tray of something she knows I like to eat at picnics. And at the bottom, Dee and the two kids again, playing with the drills in the kids' mid-renovation bathroom, also in Seattle.
All for now.

Hollis, great photos. I think the mom bloggers post more pics of the kids than the dads, so nice to see you putting some up! What great looking kids and a very sweet looking mom. Happy Mothers Day to Dee!!!

Thanks, guys. The egg lady is leaning over my shoulder right now. Say hello to Tracey and Meredith, Janice. "Hello
Tracey. And Meredith. We've had a lovely day," says Janice.

Oh, and I definitely caught that scup, that's why I was so proud of it.
