mosses monday: II



i was out in my front yard with maggie several weeks ago when my neighbor's daughter, janie, came over and started talking... she asked how my mom was doing (she was a year behind my mom in school and was good friends with her). i answered she was doing well.

then janie randomly inquired,  
"dani, she never got over mike moss, 
did she?"

~@~

my mom was a beauty queen, bathing suit model, and an artist. mike moss was a very handsome, only child, and sort of rebel-without-a-cause kind of guy. he was several years older than my mom. (mike started college when my mom was a mere freshman in high school...) 

mike's parents, the mosses, shared with me they were taken with my mother. they thought she was a kind, well mannered, beautiful young girl. likewise, my mom's parents thought mike was a great guy. when mike's name would be mentioned, my mamaw would never fail to remark, "mike was too pretty to be a boy." 

besides being extremely handsome, 
mike moss was a charmer!

when the news of mike's extra-curricular dating made its way back to my mom, she broke up with him. this didn't at all deter mike where mom was concerned.
 he said he would get her back one day.

(to be continued...)

love and God's blessings,
dani xx

I love the look of moss and now I love the story of moss. Mosses are fascinating.

Ginny said...

The suspense is daunting, but I feel fortunate to know some of the story even though my "remembery" is a little rusty. It will be like reading a classic novel that I haven't read since high school. We had a lot of wind here-nothing like good ol' Henderson though!

Heart u,
Gin

So my wireless router went out and the new one that I bought is not the best, so my laptop is upstairs where my cable modem is. Why am I telling you this you ask? Because since I don't have time to be upstairs during the day my computer time is really limited and I missed the first few segments of this cool story. Thankfully, my friend, you did not let me down and I was able to catch up!!! AWESOME story!!!!!

Oooh, what an interesting story. I'm intrigued. Is that a weird thing for someone to say to you about your Mom? Seems like a strange, out-of-the-blue statement.
