Sally was delivered on this day in Bismarck, ND, by a thoracic surgeon (in the absence of our family doctor, who had slipped out for supper). It was his first delivery since medical school, and there was much laughing, "way to go!"-ing, and back patting by the nurses. Nobody told little Sally, awake and sucking her fingers, that the excitement wasn't just for her. She has had a sunny outlook ever since. Happy birthday, sweetheart!
