WHENEVER I look in the mirror, the face staring back belongs to a man who has never won a raffle in his entire life.He has never won a late-model Cadillac. Never won a 27-inch color TV. Never won three matching pieces of Samsonite luggage. Never won a basket of cheer.Never even won a turkey.Think about that for a minute: Here's a man who NEVER EVEN WON A TURKEY. EVERYBODY wins a turkey. I know 6-, 7-year-olds who have won so many turkeys they have to stuff them under their beds because there's no more room in the freezer.

THE SCENE was Christmas Eve in a restaurant, about two hours before the youngest two offspring were due in at Baltimore-Washington International Airport. We'd finished dinner early because the restaurant wasn't crowded. What to do?"How about the lights at Sandy Point?" says he."Wouldn't the kids [ages 19 and 23] like to see it while they're here?""I doubt it."The scene shifts to Sandy Point State Park at the Bay Bridge about 40 minutes later."We should have brought the kids," says he.Anne Arundel Medical Center's Lights on the Bay, the first of what certainly should become an annual spectacle for area residents and visitors, is truly a delight.
