In May 2008 I visited my mother at her senior residence in Boise, Idaho, Valley View. I took these photos on her digital camera. The woman in the clown costume is Mom's friend, Leona, who entertains children in hospitals. She stopped by "in clown" on her way home. The little girl is my cousin Nancy's granddaughter, who quickly mastered the digital camera (note the self-portraits).

In the photos: my brother, Ed (10); mother's friend, Louise (17,18); my friend, Mollie (19); Leona (20,21); Nancy (26)
