My mother's given name is Katherine; however, when she was a child she decided that she didn't like the name Katherine and told everyone to call her Patsy or Pat. (Actually, I prefer Katherine).
Sooo, I grew up calling my mom Mamma Patsy.
All of that is really secondary to the purpose of this post.
Today, March 1, 2012, my Momma Patsy is
89 years old!
Happy birthday, Momma Patsy!
