    On my birthday too. Yesterday, September 8 was my own birthday. My fellow Virgo September babe, Ms Char Jo. Someday we can share our birthday together and party on. I guess if there were bets placed, I would have won since I would have picked Sept 8 (my birthday). Congrats to the happy family.

    Rebecca, congrats on your first child. Charlotte is very adorable. Michael must be proud to be a father. I remembered you as the nameless teen girl Chris o’ Donnell’s character Dick saved in Batman Forever. I couldn’t believe your character was harassed by the neon gang. I also enjoyed your other characters Greenlee, Michelle, Hayden and Holli.
