then janie randomly inquired,
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."
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.
love and God's blessings,
