    Jerry, don’t you know that you should never point a camera directly at a shirt that bright!

    Her birthday must be very near mine (the 18th). I share it with a couple of friends including one very close one. Come to think of it, both of them are probably better known I am, since one is a former Olympic athlete and the very close one is a fantasy author who is currently getting a taste of big-time success. I also share it with Robert Redford and Brian Aldiss.
