Thanks so much for the nice comments, PF and Kathleen. I hate pictures of me. I never recognize myself...I guess my brain just remembers my youth. Funny how that works.

I just counted the cards I've received: 30. I'm a happy girl.

That is SO true. I was shopping the other day and looked up to see a new TV screen and a woman shopping. I looked around to see the lady, but there was nobody there but me! When I think of myself, even in dreams, I see the me the way I used to look.

I look like my Mother, do you know how confusing that is?

I keep wanting to ask myself why I'm in Missoula and not at home in Wyoming. Of course, I look like my Mother did 17 years ago.

Give it some time PF, you have some years to go. The thought isn't original, but I'll never forget the shock of the first time I saw my mother's hand sticking out of my sleeve.

That I don't have to worry about, I got my Dad's short fingers and early grey hair. Since I look most like my Paternal Grandmother, I'm just biding my time.

Oh my. Thank goodness I will never look like my mother. She was blonde and Caucasian. I take after my father's side of the family. He was half Saami and I look it more than him

This is a picture of my father's mother. This is the look I'm heading for.

Here is a pic of Mom and my namesake Rebecca Elizabeth. I have blonde hair...the only blonde in the family.



Mom was one week into chemo in this pic.
