my Mom...


...Betty Earle Troup Moore, preparing to fix dinner. That's southern for 'we're all about to eat more than we should'. But it will have been worth it. My mom's a great cook. In the classic Southern tradition. Which means 'everything you eat will make you fat'. Al hamdullilah.

Your mom rocks... she is my want to be mom. I will never ever forget the 'he is eassssssy on the eyes" remark she made after you and I had a good friend visit from another country. She looks very stern in this picture. Where y'all eating too little or something?

Stern? No, she was embarassed that I wanted to take photographs of her...and we had not started dinner yet...lol...but well, she CAN be stern, with sugar on top.

I can hear her now "Oh Daviiiiiiiddddd, put that camera down. It is time to eat."

She is the ultimate steel magnolia.

I would love to have come to Betty's for dinner when I visited, but I fear that I confused her with my dietary needs... "I thought you said she was from Wisconsin!" Love her!
