I went upstate to visit my parents and grandmother yesterday and took them out for lunch as a pre-emptive Mother's Day/birthday present. Additionally as part of my gift, I allowed my mother to act all maternal without any complaints or griping from me, i.e. allowing her to load me up with home-cooked food.
One of the reason I visited was also to gather old photos of my brother Richard to give to his fiancee for a wedding website they're doing --- or at least, she is.
I came across a couple of my mom which I putting up.
