Happy Mother’s Day to both my Mammaws …. two fiery women …. Elnor Key Downs (photo on the left) and Estelle Eady Mann (photo on the right). Blessed to be their Grand Daughter. Even though they are no longer with us, I still hear the things they used to say to me and their treasured advise!!

Memories: Estelle and Arthur Mann and Motel 6 and a DJ

Just heard a song that brought back warm and fuzzy memories of my Mammaw & Arthur Mann … After my step-grandpa, Arthur, retired from construction work over in Nigeria they weren’t ready to settle down and still wanted to travel. So they took on the task of motel management for the Motel 6 chain … they were at a different location about every 6 months. It was such fun to visit them while they were doing this … One of their front desk employees when they were in Helena, Montana was also a DJ … Guess hearing this song that he played on one of his DJ’ing shifts brought these fun memories to the surface!! ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ you Mammaw and Arthur!! Miss talking and visiting with y’all and love the memories we created!!
