    My 43 year old niece is the longest survivor of Burkitt Lymphoma. She was diagnosed at age five in 1976. She was used as a “human guinea pig”, and the treatment was successful. It was believed that she could never have children, but she gave birth to two healthy children and is now a grandmother. Miracles do happen.

    I have never met a little California girl who didn’t want her own pony. It is cheaper to rent the pony though. One year a pony was rented for my granddaughter’s birthday party. It was brought into the subdivision where the Fair Oaks airport used to be, and all the party goers got to ride it. I just bought her some riding clothes that was on her Amazon wish list. She is getting interested in the sport of riding rather than being a cowgirl, I guess, but cowgirl boots are on her wish list, too.
    I don’t think anyone reported a pony being in the subdivision to the homeowners association. If they did they would probably have been laughed at.
    Luann would probably love a brand new Mustang, or better still, a 1965 Corvette Stingray all restored.

    Great conclusion to a wonderful story. P.S. I’ve loved that parrot since day one of her being in the strip.

    I wouldn’t mind if Sluggo grew out his hair a little bit.

    I voted for TJ to get a settlement rather than jail time. T J is careless, but he is not an arsonist.

    This story has been the best ever.

    Something is up with Dez because Bern hasn’t met her yet. Mmm.

    Back in the late 1930s and early 1940s, my parents were living in a house along a railroad spur. Dad would be at work, so Mom wasn’t about to let strange men into her house. She would keep cans of raviolis handy to give to the men who would stop by for work or something to eat. They would go over to a wooded area where there was a small stream and heat the raviolis over a camp fire. She would see the smoke from their camp fire.

    Her own father, my grandfather, hopped onto a boxcar to California to find work and ended up being a welder for the railroad company.

    We learned a lot that day, and I hope that on the 100th anniversary the people of the world will not be asking if it really did happen. Yes, it did happen. We learned to go down the stairs to safety instead of going up, that service dogs are amazing, and first responders are awsome people, but most of all we learned that we need to pull together to keep the nation and the world safe and free even if it costs us our lives.
