Please allow me to hijack our weekly Shoebox Memory feature to share some memories being created real-time. As you know if you've followed the Pasty Cam over the past decade+, this daily update originates from Eagle River, Michigan. There a girl named Becky grew up in the late 1900's, and at the turn of the century she married a guy from Hancock, Bryan Howard. They started life together in married housing at Michigan Tech. When Pasty Central needed a phone receptionist to process our pasty orders, Becky agreed to take on the job. (After all, it was her dad doing the asking). As Bryan continued his academic pursuits, Becky served in her role as the Pasty Girl.

Fast forward to a home in Utah in 2008 (with two yoopers missin' the U.P.) There Dr. Bryan and Becky settled into work-life and mom-life respectively. Kira came along about 8 months ago, keeping Becky busy, and providing Grandma and Grandpa with a delightful family journal of her growing up.

We want to send out a Happy Mother's Day to Mom's everywhere, whether it's your first as a mother (like Becky), or whether you've had dozens before. I hope your grateful kids sent you a dozen pasties (or some other appropriate expression of their gratitude) and that you have many more Happy Mother's Days surrounded by your thankful children.

Have a good week :o)

To My Mother
When Jesus decided to send me
From Heaven's skies of blue
He searched the wide world over
For a woman,kind and true-

Someone to love me always,
Someone to keep me spotlessly new,
One who would really want me-
He wished His own Mother could do,

But then, at last, My Jesus found one,
Who was as good as she could be,
She had been waiting,yes,longing
For a little boy like me.

So, he wrapped me in a fluffy cloud,
Tied with a ribbon blue,
And slid me down the rainbow,
Yes, Mom--to earth and you.

Thanks so much for the birthday wishes! My boys had it easy this year...one gift for both days!

Note to Neil: I wondered how you knew it was my birthday, when I read your wishes this morning. You were in cohoots with my hubby! I'll give you a call soon to work out details. I can't wait! :->

Mikie....

I agree with you, the best people are born in May! (I wonder why?)

Happy Mother's Day thoughts too, to everyone who's mother has gone on to be with Jesus. God did give MORE love to Mothers so they can give more love to their children ~~ unconditional love!

There is another new mother to whom we want to wish a happy first Mother's Day. Erica (Bramble) Nelson is also a former Pasty Central employee, and her new arrival came about six weeks ago:

Erica and Allie

Chris and Erica's new daughter is Allie Marie Nelson, born on March 29th, 19 inches tall and 6 pounds 11 ounces.

As I mentioned, Erica has worked for Pasty Central, especially around previous holiday seasons when we needed some quick extra hands. She is the daughter of tireless John Bramble, who has folded millions of pasties on our home page over the last 12+ years. Congratulations to the grand parents and happy First Mother's Day to Erica :o)
