Small House of Everything

Small House of Everything

Sunday, August 28, 2016


Why is August 28 such a great day?  Because so many great and wonderful people were born on this day...writers Goerthe and Tolstoy...and Jack Vance (born a hundred years ago today)...Elizabeth Seton, one-time nun and present-day saint...actors as diverse as Chalres Boyer and Jack Black...championship skater Scott Hamilton...singers Shania Twain and Leann Rimes...comics legend Jack Kirby, who gave us the Fantastic Four, Captain America, Thor, and hundreds of other characters...

But outshining them all is Catherine Delaney Dowd -- known as Ceili (pronouced KAY-lee) -- who happens to be my oldest granchild and the light of my life.  May this day and every day forward bring her the happiness and laughter she brings to us.

Happy birthday, lovely girl!
