1. My dog's favorite toy is a small cloth porcupine.

2. A small female house sparrow at the feeder outside my office window
delighted me today, just by feeding so close to my line of vision.

3. I learned today that my second cousin who sings will soon have a song playing during a soap opera. I think it would be really cool to be
