Happy Birthday, Alison!!
I hope you have a wonderful day filled with pleasant surprises, and a good year ahead. (And that life stops beating up on you already!) Good luck with your classes and your writing. *hugs*
P.S. If for whatever reason you don't get a new digital camera, and you want my old one, just let me know. It's only 3.1 MP with 3x zoom, hardly the latest and greatest, but it works!
