Not sure whether you can see it, but top pic, mom had her favorite drink in front of her - Pepsi. There was never a doubt in our house who the winner of the Pepsi-Coke challenge would be. I remember the basement was "filled" with several 8-pack bottles of Pepsi whenever it went on sale. Crazy - all that Pepsi, and I grew up a Coke fan. ;) Bottom picture? That is her facial expression when she was given anything other than a Pepsi. Love you, mom.
