I'm a DAR. I just learned (or maybe I just finally paid attention and heard) this 4th of July that I'm a Daughter of the American Revolution. I don't have the paperwork to prove it, and I need to talk with my dad and grandpap to figure out the relationship, but my great great great ... great great someone-or-other and his brother fought in the Revolutionary War. Kinda crazy, huh?
I am closer in age to my MOTHER than to my youngest sibling.
For as terrible as I am about sending birthday cards, anytime I see someone's "birthdate time" on a digital clock, I say a little prayer for that person.
