1. Eighteen years ago today I brought forth a force to be reckoned with. We named her Audrey, which means "noble strength". Perfect.
2. A steady rain drummed on the metal roof during the entire church service. It sure beats the blizzard of '93 that we suffered in New York the week after Audrey was born.
3. Two of the cutest little living creatures came to live at our house today. Tiny Robo Dwarf hamsters. Chelsea and Chad gave them to Audrey as a surprise (to all of us) birthday gift.
