My mother works in an asphalt plant. She runs the office, specifically, and she's the only woman there. There are other women who work at other plants for this company, but none at her office.
I've long teased her about being like an aunt to some of the guys, because most of them are about in my age range (mid-twenties to mid-thirties, although some are older as well.) Well, in particular she's most aunt-like to a very tall fellow who likes to tease. David a nd his wife welcomed their first little one this morning, so "Auntie" is pretty happy! (It's a boy.)

There are two other babies shortly to arrive, also both boys: our friends in TX (to be found at are awaiting number 12, and my cousin in Michigan ( are waiting on number 3!

How nice that your mother can be an "auntie" figure! I'm sure that goes a long way toward making the plant a nicer place to be.
