Elaine, you don't look mean at all! Great picture!:-)
Like those rosy cheeks! So introduce us to the kids already!
OOps! Thoughtless of me-- but I will doubtless have more to tell over time. Laura is our elder child, and (cough) a research physicist. I can spell all of the words she used in her dissertation title. Nathaniel, 2 yrs and 8 months younger at 26, has degrees in mathematics and computer engineering; he does embedded programming. They got wavy hair, I got rosy cheeks.
I can attest - her cheeks are indeed rosy and she's only a little mean... :)(AND I got to use the word 'attest' in a sentence instead of only in a puzzle!)
Funny: Laura is the name of one of our daughters (the quilter); she would have been Nathaniel if she had been a boy.
