Happy Mother's Day

To all those who nurture children, I wish you a Happy Mother's Day. There is a wonderful tribute to moms or mums on Austen Authors today. I hope you will visit.

The picture is of my mom, Hannah Mahady Lydon, taken in Washington, D. C. in 1942.


  1. Beautiful! Was she working for the war effort at the time?

  2. Your mum is a real stunner Mary. We had our ,"Mothers Day," ages ago over here.
    All the best,

  3. Yes, my mother was stunning. She was the belle of the ball at her h.s. dance. Angie, my mom worked for a govt. agency during the war as did my father. Dad was one of Roosevelt's Whiz Kids. One of those young people who scored so high on the civil service exam that they were brought to D.C. They saw FDR's funeral and lots of other things. Their tiny apt. was a hangout for every friend from back home in Minooka, PA b/c of the lack of housing and hotel rooms. Thanks for asking.
