Man, they really are. My two daughters, Kerry and Vanessa -- and their young men, Marcus and Anson -- joined me for dinner tonight, then we went to the local arcade (Bumpers) to research some things for Anson. What a fun, fun evening. Being a mom is best thing I've ever done. Working for Chris comes close. So does being a writer and visiting kids at schools. But I wonder at times how I got so lucky to parent two remarkable people. Thanks, girls, for giving me so much the past 27 years. I love you.
