Extra Extra! Happy Birthday Edition!

The Happiest of happy birthdays to my dear twin, sister of sisters, sweet keeper of my heart!

I cannot believe we are 38!

Forty is in our sights!

How can that be? Look at these little girls…the mind boggles.

Rucha & Oami (circa 1974)

I hope you have a Grand day today, doing all the good things that you enjoy doing…. in your lovely new home, with your lovely husband and lovely dog and all your lovely new friends.

Thank you for always being a listening ear and my creative litmus; for your  stylish eye; for being the compassionate voice and for loving me just the way I am.

Thanks too to Judith, without whom we’d be nothing…literally.

    You were a pair of cute kids! But then, ALL little kids are cute. I don’t know about the other “cute kids”, but I know you girls have become
    lovely young women, productive, giving and sharing, and holding your family and friends so close. May your futures always be filled with love. Much of it from
