Okay, so skip the article about the Obama inauguration right on down to the other large article on the front page of our local newspaper. It’s Norah!
Our city, Webster Groves, has that good old small town feel in the midst of a relatively large city. We have a community center just for town residents where, in the summer, all the children and their parents can be seen swimming, playing tennis, roller hockey and skating boarding. We have our own little library that looks like it was constructed in the early twentieth century with all the charm of buildings from that era. Norah and I visit the library a couple times a month. They have puzzles, books and toys galore and she loves being there. The library is trying to expand and one day while we were there a photographer from the newspaper asked if she could take a picture of Norah for the paper. Weren’t we surprised when a few weeks later she ended up on the front page!
