Happy Every Day Is Mother's Day!

Well, it is when she is the Mom to a Sweet Boy!
And though this post is a couple of days late...
the sentiment is as fresh!
And so I join my little brother, Reufus Jackson Wright...
I hear you now...
:::Wait a minute! Your little brother, WHEU???:::
Meet my 10 month old little brother, Reufus Jackson Wright!
50% Sweet / 50% Mischief
50% Golden / 50% Monkey

More on RJW in a later post,
because this one is about celebrating the Mom!

And so as Reufus and I put our noggins together, we decided there would be no better way to celebrate and also pamper our the Mom than to treat her to a Spa Day! And so I called the best spa in town and booked the special day! And so what follows is...
Our Mother's Day Celebration 2011
at Mister T's Day Spa!!!
I enjoyed my bath, the cool water on such a hot day and mostly the loving attention I got from Mister T!

Meanwhile, the Reufus J was busy... drinking the bath water (above), being amazingly friendly and respectful of Stanley (the cat) and just being the Reufus.
My the Mom thinks I am just ADORABLE.
Happy Mother's Day, The Mom!!!
I love my Uncle Tom, errrrrrr... I mean, Mister T.

He's got the magic hands, including that yellow one on the end of the hose.
His bath expertise goes unchallenged,
but he also gives good commentary, is a great conversationalist,
a good listener and a confidant...

And what happens at Mister T's...
Stays at Mister T's.

But... Does the Reufus look like a boy who can keep a secret???
Cousin Dakota is a handsome boy, and he love his the Mom, too! Here he is, hoping the water has run out patiently waiting his turn for the Spa Treatment.
Cousin Cane (with his head under the chair) and the Buddy also color themselves invisible eagerly wait their turn for the sudsy experience!
And a glorious highlight to this beautiful day is 
spending time with my gorgeous girlfriend, Miss Porter!
We were all enjoying our day and salon experience,
when the next client was called...

"Reufus... Reufus Jackson... REUFUS!!!!!!"

Little Toot did jump up on the Salon Bench on his own,
but it took a Mister T foot on a leash to keep him there.
Little Toot...
The chin rubs are one of the best parts...
I think he liked watching his reflection in the window...
that, or he was a bit indignant.
Yeah, he's cute.
He's a little bit lover and snuggler...
And he tried to play "the sweet, innocent card".
It might have worked... but he plays it too often!
And my very very VERY most favoritest part of the day...
[Porter, Spa and pine cones a distant second]
Is spending time with my the Aunt Madison!!!

She's like a the Mom to me, and I am her Number Six (Retired).
Happy Mother's Day, Aunt Madison!!!
For some the Moms, a day at The Spa would be gift enough... but Reufus and I wanted to do something extra sweet and special. And we needed Uncle Tom's help (a car ride and who am I kidding... some cash!) to present her with this special gift!

"Happy Mother's Day to The Mom! Love, B and R"
See's Candy! The Mom's Favorite!!!
Now, I've tried to share this with all the happiness I can muster.
It is a difficult post, as it is the first since life will never be the same.

And truly.
Life. Will. Never.
Be the Same.

My the Mom woke up on Mother's Day
just as she does every other day,
reaching out for and missing...

Her The Luke.
I miss him, too.
So very much.

The Mom and I are reaching out.
I can't explain why it's so hard, so painful... without Our The Luke.
It just is.

We are making baby steps... puppy steps.
And Reufus Jackson is lending his help.
With love from
