It's official...a new baby!! Let me explain...my daughter, Rachel recently got a new job (applause and bow, Rachel!). I'm so proud of her, they hired her mainly on her fabulous smile and personality! It's her first "big girl job" and she's very excited! She starts her new job tomorrow. There was only one "little" problem. She sold her car when we left Washington. So today she took me car shopping. And here's what she decided on... A very shiny, red Volvo! Her new BABY!!Can you tell she inherited my love of shiny red things?! She named her Ruby Tuesday. (She got that naming thing from me too!) So here's to you, Rachel! I'm so proud of you, for the bright, fun and yes, shiny person you have become! I LOVE YOU! Mum

I love her new car. Tell Rachel I said congratulations. That is exciting. Hey, we are coming your way for Thanksgiving, thinking maybe we can hook up.

Hi Victoria:
Tell Rachel congrats on her new job, I hope she loves it. And how cool to have a nice shiny red car to drive to work.
There is a restaurant I ate in while in Las Vegas, and it's called Ruby Tuesday. (I think it might be a chain).
Happy Thanksgiving to you both.

Now that is a sharp looking car!! Way to go, Rachel! We also name things... My GPS is Delilah and a friend of mine named hers the same as your car - Ruby, (after the Stones' song Ruby Tuesday, not the restaurant!!)... Donna

That's funny, Rachel's GPS is Carol Ann, and we laughed whenever we used "her" to guide us on the long trip from Washington to Tennessee! I'm not sure how we would have survived the trip without good 'ole Carol Ann!
