I really had to think about it. And I realized it went back to my childhood. One of my friends, whose house we hung around, had wonderful parents, almost like a second set of parents to many of us.
The mom was warm, funny, friendly, and caring. She accepted her role as the neighborhood mom. She was pretty, not movie star pretty but pretty enough. She was a nice influence on all of us.
She had those big, warm, brown eyes and dark brown hair And I know it influenced me in my search for the woman in my life.
The mystery has been revealed.
and now time for a revealing beer!
