    Ugly duckling??? You must have grown up in a very dark place, I can't see how anyone would have considered you as ugly.

    LOL Richard....they didn't call me Chewbacca because I was cute! Kids are cruel little monsters. Let's just say I fought a lot as a young one. But it taught me to reinforce my daughters beauty daily; and teach them how to see the more important beauty inside of a person.

    NO, hon......your crown is AWESOME. I tease my family and friends about being a princess. They seem not to have gotten the memo! I then tell them but...BUT on PS....I'm a QUEEN! Thanks, Flo......It does pick me up tonight. One of those days I just want to crawl into bed and hide....Don't worry, I'll let Richard take over on those days.
