Lucy began glowing with an ethereal, nuclear radiance this weekend. So I guess her powers are starting to manifest. Hopefully, she won't give us cancer.
Most of you probably don't know that most members of the Tolman clan have super-human abilities. Here's a sampling.

Becky has beams of energy that shoot out of her eyes. It's great when our knives are dirty, it helps with the squirrels out back, and she can shoot my clothing off from 50 yards.

Grandpa Tolman has a sonic scream. Inconvenient during the NCAA tournament.

Samantha probably has the most potential to end up in a cape on the front of a lunch box. She started flying several months back, and she mostly just flits about pretending to be a fairy. It's a good thing Mom has her laser vision, or we'd never get her to come down.

You don't need to tell me that telekinesis or colossal strength would have been cooler. Invisibility certainly would have been easier to photoshop. Oh, well. At least I get back at Becky for blasting my clothes by peeking over the shower curtain.

But what about the baby??? Thanks for the laugh!

That was weird. And funny.

P.S. I tried the links on your blog just to see if they'd work from our computer and they did. So, I don't know what's going on with yours! Good luck. :)

P.P.S. Can we go to the zoo when I come out? I'll be there in 20 minutes.

I'm glad that, although you have revealed your own powers to the world, my own still remain undisclosed.
