I’ve just finished a big project.  I scanned all the family photos I got from my mother and all those my husband has of his family.    Tina has been sketching her parents.  That inspired me to turn my favorite photo of my mother into a sketch.  She is wearing horseback riding attire.  There was no information about the date on the photo.  Compared to others, she looks like she’s 20 something and that would make this photo taken in the 1930’s.  She would have been 100 years old this week!
