Yep, I've been feeling like this lately...slightly out of focus, eyes kind of inward focused, and a zillion books that want my attention!

Happy Birthday Mom

Born March 26, 1917, San Antonio, TX
Baby portraits, Mataley Mozelle Webb, 1917

Her Grandma Eugenia Booth Miller and Mataley and 2 playmates, San Antonio, TX 1922
 - I think it likely that this was around the same time as the following pictures however she marked her album.



Her mother, Mozelle Miller Webb and Mataley, 1924, the year Mozelle remarried Fred Munhall

Fairy princess, probably the same year as pictures above, thought it is marked 1926


1929 House on Lafayette, San Antonio (Mataley was around 12 but looks much older to me.)

Don't you love the kids peeking out the window!



Mataley with her two younger cousins Patsy Rodgers and Robert Rodgers, San Antonio, TX 1934

Bridesmaid before 1936


Wedding Announcement, 1936


Nov 21, 1936 San Antonio, Texas



That's probably the San Antonio River.

Probably a photo that she wished had been destroyed, but somehow survived through the years.

I haven't copied many other pictures of my mother that were taken during my adult years, while she became a grandmother.  So there are lots of images in my mind that I don't have here to share.  I hope you enjoy this glimpse into her life, which ended in 2003.
