SC Rewind: Picture Parade

SC Rewind: Picture Parade - Mother's Day edition
Published: May 12, 2024 09:51 am EDT

This week's edition of Rewind is the regular monthly feature known as Picture Parade. This time the theme is tied to a very special day on the annual calendar which occurs this year on Sunday, May 12 and it is Mother's Day.  Robert has displayed a number of old photographs that contain pictures of people who are mothers from harness racing families. 

I would like to extend a very Happy Mother's Day to everyone in the Rewind audience on this special day. We all owe much to our own mother and also to many other great women who have been part of our extended families and thus had an effect on our upbringing and well being.  I was privileged to have a wonderful mother who of course has long since departed but I thank her for her love and understanding and apologize for not paying closer attention to her words. To my wonderful wife I am forever indebted for her dedication to motherhood and also our daughters who are also mothers and have learned from her caring example.

Quote For The Week: I recently read this quote included in an obituary and want to repeat it today. "Life does not come with a manual; it does come with a Mother."

Thanks to everyone who joined in on identifying the wonderful mothers connected with our sport. A special thank you to Hector for his well chosen words. I will have to be on the lookout for more "mother" pictures as my supply of unused ones has been nearly exhausted.
