Another year, another two talented beauties crowned Your Highness Grandmother.

The 12th year of the event took place October 19 at National Restaurant, where Roza Mordukhayeva, 80, was crowned Queen Grandmother and Galina Basova, 68, won the Grandmother title for the younger batch of beauts.

Murdokhayeva was born in Tashkent, Uzbekistan. She worked as a nurse for more than 45 years, and adores children. Dancing and singing are her true passion, and Murdokhayeva has performed in the pageant, organized by the Be Proud Foundation, multiple times. She has four grandchildren, and one great grandson.

The other lovely lady, Basova, is from Russia. She’s seen her family grow tremendously stateside, and is now the proud grandmother of five. She studied communications at the institute of Leningrad, and has just one hobby: travel.

The event celebrates the lives of grandmothers across Southern Brooklyn. It’s a good-natured competition, based on dancing, singing, talents, costume design and more. It’s judged by a panel of those who love grandmothers best: grandfathers.

Congratulations to Basova and Mordukhayeva!

I think this is one of those titles that made sense in my head and no one else’s.

Is there any particular reason that they are all facing the same  direction?

Morning Mug: Sundown

I think this is actually a sunrise, but still… it’s a pretty picture and a great song, so we’ll just take a little artistic license, thank you very much.

Sundown, you better take care
If I find you been creeping ’round my back stairs
Sometimes I think it’s a sin
When I feel like I’m winning when I’m losing again

It appears we will finally see some sunshine again this weekend. It has sure been a dreary few days.
