    So *that's* where you get that youthful, movie-star appearance!  Dick

    No sorrow here, Kathy!  I wish I could live across the street from my 
father so I am so very glad you are able to go.

    Terrific Kathy!  I am sooooo glad for you.   And yes, I do believe it is 
(and *in*) destiny!  I know we make our choices, but I also believe the main 
highway is all laid out for us, and our choices are always *limited* ones, to 
the left or right, but not to just any road of our choosing.  I think that's 
what God's loving guidance and great Master Plan is all about!  And you have 
a wonderful sister like mine - aren't we just so lucky?  Thank God!   -chris
