For Mom, On Her 80th Birthday

I'm stuck at home with pneumonia and can't be with my mother on her birthday -- she lives 1400 miles away in Detroit. My sisters and brother are there and I'll miss them too.

I made the following 2-minute video in her honor. My son is going to take the DVD over to show her. Hope they (and you) enjoy it.

P.S. I'm in it -- see if you can pick me out. I'm the butterball in the sailor suit.

Love you Mom. Sorry I couldn't be there.

That was really lovely, it made me cry. Your Mom was/is beautiful. I feel so bad that you can't be there. I really hope another opportunity (a happy one) presents itself for a family reunion.

Take care of yourself, Ara. I hope you're planning to call so you can talk to everyone.

Thanks, Rose. I'm glad you liked it. I had a great time making it.

I've called and chatted with everyone several times over the last few days. We all feel bad, especially my kid sister because she doesn't make it to the States all that often.

Hopefully I can get there soon.

So by my quick math you have about 19 brothers and sisters :-) and your mother is and was a very beautiful woman.

How did you get this to DVD?

Sorry about the pneumonia. I had it in 2004. I caught mine early thanks to a husband who would have dragged me, kicking and screaming, to the ER if I hadn't gone voluntarily. Get plenty of rest and fluids in you. And what the heck, eat some cupcakes or something. You've got pneumonia! Who's gonna say anything?

Mrs PC:

"You have to be nice to me -- I have pneumonia!"



I FTPd the file to my son, who burned it onto a DVD himself.

As for 19 brothers and sisters, that would be so if I myself accounted for 5 of them.

Actually, I have one older brother and sister and a younger sister, too.

I'll pass your compliment on to my mother. Thanks.

Good work. You learned from the best.

Yes, I did. Yes, I did.
