Happy birthday Mum! Looking every part the British 1950's matinee idol!
You're the one from whom from the womb I've inherited dark hair and eyes, a highly-strung disposition and a love of music!

The first day of May is also the anniversary of Sir Thomas Browne's 1658 Discourses. Its date is noted at the end of the dedicatory epistle to both 'Urn-Burial' and 'The Garden of Cyrus'.

I hope you don't think it forward of me to say your mum was hot! Look at those great big eyes and beautiful smile!

Whenever I see an old movie or photo of a '50s babe, I can't help but notice the hairstyle and think, why'd they have to hack and lacquer? It was a trend for too long! My mother too. I wanted her to let it grow and wear it loose and wild but she wouldn't. Looks like your mum would be gorgeous with a buzz-cut!

Is she...still with us?

My Mum still looks 10/15 years younger than her age and her semi-justifiable vanity will be delighted to read your comment! I thank you on her behalf!
