Re: Alexanders and other family names.
Congratulations on a crowning achievement, Margaret!
I'm sorry. I couldn't help it. Puns come from the
other side of the family. Sons are great, but there's
something about having a daughter that is really
super-special. (And I always thought I wanted just
lots of sons.) A friend of my mother's gave me this
old saw when I had mine, author unknown:
A son is a son 'til he takes him a wife.
A daughter's a daughter for all of her life.
I don't make any claims to knowing how true that is
since none of mine have married yet, damn it, but it's
a nice thought. -- Penny
