Why my mother sang that to me when I was a child, I was never sure until now. Maybe it was to hip me to the fact that life is ever moving, ever changing, and it's happening right now, baby!

I don't remember the moment I realized Linda Evans was in our family to stay, that my only and older brother had brought a bride into the inner circle of what I considered Candyland. To paraphrase Shakespeare, I only know as I told her today, "I couldn't have done better if I'd picked you myself."
