Mute Monday: Zip


The zippiest person I've ever known: my mother. Three weeks before this photo was taken, she'd given birth to Moi. Already she was back out in the mountains.

Excellent pic. She looks pretty spirited. Neat original "zip" idea.

that is a great picture, a great use of MM and clearly... a great person. Happy MM.

I hope you're sitting on the couch with a cold Fresca, enjoying the after glow.

Aunty Belle said...

Kate said...

Awesome MM!

moi said...

Troll: She was spirited alright. And infectious.

AB: Fresca, golf, and eBay!

Aunty: Ran the race without tripping or falling off the mountain! Not my best time, but I finished in under 3:00, which is always my goal. Next year, I get serious :o).

Kate: Thanks!

That's got some Zip. It's got a bit of zoom, zowie and zazoo too!

I'll bet she's mighty proud of her little girl, as well she should be. zippy, huh, then you come by it honestly. Hit the pool Warrior Princess and enjoy you success, it is well deserved.

Looks like she'd got a zippy attitude there...at least you came by it naturally!

Congrats on the run..I am strangely jealous of your outdoor activities

Kudos to her! I knew a lady once that ran a race the day after having a baby. Good grief. Hope I look as good as your mum after having a baby :D

The good old days just like in "The Good Earth" where the woman squats by the side of the field to give birth and then right back to picking rice.

Meghan said...

She's birthed you THREE WEEKS before that photo was taken??!! How is that even possible? She IS zippy... and svelte!

That is so unfair.
