Great daughter, or the greatest daughter?

Today I picked up Katie at the Ithaca bus depot, and she had a birthday present for me! And what a present! She'd never heard of my fixation on Michigan State basketball great Gary Ganakas until I posted about it, but look what she found on eBay!!


  1. The greatest daughter. What a gal.

  2. Awesome! Also kind of makes me wonder about parents and children, and the sharing of those kinds of details, and how often we might think the other might not be interested, when in fact....

  3. Hi Laura,
    I've been reading your blog for awhile - really enjoying it! Thanks for all your effort!

    As I read about this wonderful and thoughtful gift from your daughter, one thing came to mind....she must have had a mother that taught her kindness and showed her how to love and express appreciation.....a great daughter....from a great mother!

    Isn't it nice when they grow up and you reap what you have sown for so many years??? It doesn't always happen that way - life gets in the way and they are all their own "personality", but one thing is clear....this young lady learned how to behave from you....congratulations.
