Daughters Are The Greatest

OK, let the debate begin, but for my money daughters are the greatest. I say that because my daughter has a birthday today. I'd say it the other 364 days of the year as well. I didn't want to wake her this morning, so I text her telling her that her birth was the greatest thing that ever happen to me and I meant every word of it.

The 27th Annual Teddy Bear Clinic is This Sunday

The 27th Annual Teddy Bear Clinic will be held this Sunday afternoon from noon to 3 p.m. at Blessing Hospital's main entrance. As the founder of this event 27 years ago, the staff at Blessing Riemann College of Nursing was kind enough to name one of two new gigantic Teddy Bears after me last year.  He is known as the "Dorsey Bear" and the other is known as "Flo" after Florence Nightingale. If you missed them last year, both bears will be there this Sunday.
