It was just 48 years ago this morning. You were so beautiful. Dad had said he wanted a boy, and then he saw you and cried. Before I left the hospital he went shopping…picked up pink curtains with cute little bunny rabbits, pink pillow (had to explain that a baby could not sleep on a pillow), and even pink waterproof pants (yes they had waterproof that long ago). It only took me 45 minutes to produce a perfect baby! Dad sends love and still thinks you are 30 and I just let him. Love to our most beautiful baby- –

I’ve always had a soft spot in my heart for steak with lots of pepper.
