Mothers Day 2006

I believe the best compliment you can pay a woman is to say she's a good Mommy.

This is my Mom and Dad. They've both been gone for a good many years now. They were both good parents but this is about Mothers. Mom loved her family and did everything she could to make sure we were all good folks. They both led by example. I miss them.

This is my Mother in-law. They say behind every successful man stands an amazed Mother In-Law. She is smetimes amazed....but won't admit it. She has committed her life to making sure I don't get too comfortable.
She is a good Mommy.

My future Daughter In-law is on the left. Should they decide to have children someday, she too will be a good Mommy. The other beauty is already my Daughter In-Law and is a really good Mommy. This pic was taken in a restaurant a few days after she had given birth to their second child.

My Daughter on the left and Mrs Ralph on the right. Two more really good Mommies.

This is the Mother of my children with some old guy. She's as good as it gets. I would only fault her in her taste in men. She works too hard, and always has. She has built her own successful business and our kids have done well because of her nurturing. Good Mothers are the fabric of our society, and civilization. As Rita Rudner said, when living by themselves, Men are like bears with furniture." These are just a few of the good Mommies I know. There are many. If you are a Mom, thankyou for doing your job. The world is a better place because of you. Happy Mothers Day to all. And to the Mothers pictured here, "I love you!"

Cliff that was a very beautiful tribute to the Mummys in your family.

I beleive that all Mummys should be good Mummys but that isn't always the case. I love being a Mummy and I feel I have the best job in the whole world.

Take care Cliff and wish your wife a Happy Mothers day from another Mother in Arizona.
