Happy Birthday, Patty!

Today is my younger sister's birthday. I took this pic about 15 years ago when her youngest, Mike, was just a little guy. It is one of my favorites. We had gone to visit her friend's litter of puppies -- 12! -- and spent part of the afternoon on "poop duty". Sue wanted to be sure each one had taken care of business before she let them back in the house.
Patty has a natural gift with children and animals. She has raised four remarkable young adults and one very gregarious, totally lovable labradoodle. The really special thing about Patty is that her kids all know how lucky they are! [I have to give her spouse, Tom, credit too. They're both phenomenal parents.]
Happy Birthday, Girl!!
