Mother’s Day Post 2017

Happy Mother’s Day.  I’ve had a great day.  I hope that yours has been good too.  I saw my youngest grandson on Friday who was born on Thursday.  A really great Mother’s Day present.  I had dinner with my fiancée and his sister later that day.  He  cooked.  A present for his sister and I.  My son brought  flowers Friday when he picked me up for the visit with his son.  The flowers were from him and his oldest son, who came to see me today.  I went to the mall, later and bought a purse I had looked at a few months ago.  Got a great deal on it and a dress today.   Passed up another dress I really liked.  The cost.  It was cute. The son of a good friend from my secondary school days, was married yesterday, a happy Mother’s Day for her.

I wrote a youth baseball team into my children’s book, A Birthday Story.  It was named for a Negro Leagues Team the Detroit Stars who ended play in the 60’s.  The Negro Leagues were the teams owned and operated by Negroes/African-Americans.  Jackie Robinson played for Negro leagues teams before he was hired to play for the New York, Brooklyn Dodgers.   There is a Kansas City Negro Leagues Baseball Museum in  Kansas City, Missouri that honors this piece of African-American history.
