Surprise visitors

I knew cousin Monica was going to take Aunt Olla to Twin Valley today for final preparations for the sale tomorrow. I was slated to pick Olla up and bring her back to the Fertile Hilton at about 4 o'clock.

Old Friends

Back when I was in early elementary school, my mother, without my knowing, spirited away some of my toys and put them in the upstairs of the grainery. I don't know where she got the idea, but she figured that after about a year without the toys, I would enjoy them more when I got to play with them again.

When I discovered the toys in the grainery about a year later, (remember how long a year was when you were that age) it was better than getting new toys--it was as if I had been reunited with old friends.
