Today was my sister Marlene's(Marti for short) birthday. She claimed the title of New Years Baby, 1950. Mom, in the picture with her, received many gifts for the distinction, including a ride home in an ambulance. Her picture was plastered all over the newspaper, and also was on her first birthday. Now, it's just another birth and no big deal. I wish they'd go back to the way it was. It was something special, a major event. What's really funny, is her daughter Robyn's father-in-law was born in the same hospital, and almost got the title that year, but Mom and Marti beat him out! Small world!
