Subject: RE: Jane's Rainbow: for all needing support & comfort
Oh, Wendy, that's just...reprehensible.

Pete, so happy to hear the news about Tommy.

Tam, glad you're feeling better.

Tinker, we've already talked, but I'm glad Ben's OK and that you boarded the Rainbow.

Now for a feel-good story: I belong to an online photo-a-day group, and another member is the mother of a six-year-old who happens to have autism. As a way to both connect with her daughter and to get Delilah to be more creative, Jennifer, the mom, started having Delilah decide how they were going to interpret the day's prompt and come up with the subject. Delilah has quickly stolen the hearts of everyone in the group, and we enjoy our daily glimpse into how she sees the world. Jennifer was hoping to have a camera for Delilah for Christmas, but a major vet bill happened (Delilah's dog Baxter needed surgery) and money is tight for them at the moment. I'd bought my mom a digital camera for her birthday a couple of years ago that she can't use due to tremors in her hands from her stroke, and we decided at Christmas that Delilah should have the camera. It arrived half-an-hour ago (thank you USPS tracking!) and I'm waiting excitedly to hear from them.
