I so wanted to post a picture of my birthday party 50 years ago today: my Sally Draper credentials. My 4-year-old brother and I are sitting at a card table with our great-grandparents and in the center is a many-tiered cake with a huge number 7 atop it. I'm sure there's a companion snapshot somewhere of my mother bringing the cake out, but I can't find it, and I can't get the scanner to work. So all I have to offer is a photo of a dress that looks pretty much like the one I was wearing.
I think it was a very, very happy time in all of our lives.
