Mother’s Day.

1949
1955
1960
1966
1977
1983
1988
1994
2005

These are the years that my Mom, Phyllis Crawford‘s birthday fell on a Sunday, the second Sunday in may — Mother’s Day.

In my kid-memory her birthday always fell on Mother’s Day which was just another way she was perfect. But the truth is memory is slippery and often wrong.

My Mom died in 2010 though, and she yet lives in her family’s hearts. In the same way that her own mother–Phyllis Silva–lives on in her family; and in the same way Jean Crawford lives on in her kids’ hearts.

Mother’s Day is a lovely idea. I love seeing people’s “Mom” photos. It’s particularly hard though, when Mom has passed on.
So Happy Birthday Mom, and Happy Mother’s Day, to all the Moms out there, and those who take on Mom-roles.

New Bot Day! Raideen (勇者ライディーン) hails from 1975 Japanese tv. Like many of my bots I first encountered him in the Philippines. When I saw the Shogun Warriors back in the States I was happy they brought him over but mystified why they changed the spelling of his name to Raydeen. I picked up this superdeformed rendering of him at Q Pop Shop @qpopshop in Little Tokyo. #Raideen

I was not sullen but look sullen in this. I took a day to walk all over. This was along the SD River. Helped an older, lost couple with directions. My Spanish was terrible. I wrote out directions with my phone & Google’s help. People lost around San Diego have been picking me out of a crowd as potentially helpful for a long time. I bet they got where they were going but I will never know. Lastly, unlike C3PO I don’t ever say “No more adventures.”
