Mr. Sweetie Pie and I visited with our daughter and her boyfriend tonight at the hospital. Yes, she's in again - three weeks this time so far. No fun for anyone, but hopefully she's on the mend now.

We took a little walk through the tunnels that run under the Medical Center complex here in Houston to Texas Children's Hospital. There on the first floor, safely behind glass, is the most fabulous model train layout I've ever seen. Many of the parts are lighted and animated. There are buttons on the panels on the outside of the display that the children can push to start different parts moving. There is a sign saying that the whole thing was donated by a doctor and his wife. We had a good time seeing all the little vignettes in action and the trains running. I'm sure it must be a great treat for children who have to be in the hospital.

Hope you're all well and happy!

Hugs and kisses,
