The photo is my sibs and me in front of the magnolia tree that was just a few branches when we moved into the house in 1964. This photo was taken for my mom's last Mother's Day in 2015.

“There is a theory which states that if ever anyone discovers exactly what the Universe is for and why it is here, it will instantly disappear and be replaced by something even more bizarre and inexplicable.

There is another theory which states that this has already happened.” – Douglas Adams
