She's a real doll!! But then, all your kids are. I suspect she's in her late 20's. Happy Birthday!

She had me with vinegar on her french fries. You can tell that she's had a good British upbringing!

We lived in Scotland for a time so we love vinegar and brown sauce on our "chips" whenever we can get them.

I think I'd like your family to adopt me.
