Snapshot of my sister

This is a picture of my sister, ca. 1967. Today is her birthday. Happy birthday, Sister! She's still cute, plus she's generous, caring, and really, really funny. In our family photographs, she's the one making goofy faces. The very best thing I remember from my childhood is the sound of her laughter. She was a wild child and I was a mild child. While I was reading stories, she was making them up, creating adventures for her Barbie dolls. When we were teenagers, we covered for each other, and we knew enough about one another to get each other grounded for life. Once she slugged one of my ex-boyfriends for saying something mean about me. Sisters just don't get any better than that!
