Blue Monday ~ A happy day

Yesterday was a special day . . .

We celebrated Mom's 80th birthday ~ and luckily the BLUE water pitcher makes this a great blue Monday post.

Mary Jo, Or Gee Jo as we all call her, is an amazing southern lady. She is loved by so many, as she has touched so many lifes with her kindness and compassion.
She ran that WhistleStop Cafe for nearly 30 years. . . with dad's help of course. Cooking and serving in the kitchen day after day. She was busy in the kitchen the day Fannie Flagg came in and said "I'm going to write a book about my Aunt Bess and this cafe". . . as they say ~ the rest is history.
She is the backbone of this family!
Happy Birthday Gee Jo !

Don't forget to check in at Smiling Sally for more blues.
y'all enjoy~
