I have a mother.

I was making a vinaigrette last evening and I noticed something floating in the bottle of red wine vinegar and on closer inspection I realized that my commercial vinegar had developed a mother. My grandparents made their own vinegar so they always had a mother, but this is the first time that I have ever seen a commercial red wine vinegar develop a mother culture in the bottle. I plan to refill the bottle with an inexpensive red wine and attempt to keep it going.

I am wondering if this has ever happened to anyone else?
