came up with the next best thing. One day while Grandma was gone to town, I
snuck all twenty-five bottles under the house and lined them up neatly in the
crawlspace. I was pretty proud of myself for coming up with that idea. I'd planned

coming up. After grandma went to the house, I gave them just enough time to get
settled before dropping my hoe, dashing to the house, and assuming a strategic
position beneath. I was in luck. They had taken seats on the back porch where, I
knew from past experience, the acoustics were well-nigh perfect. The cracks

He wants to feel the joy of coming home, putting the old shot-up kite down gently
and heading to the dispersal unit where A-Able lives, another operation done
right. Then he sees Dora and is back in the Cessna, shouting encouragement at
himself, lowers the flaps and sees the river still coming up at him. He levels out,
judging the water and cuts the engine. So his mind wandered for a moment, so
what? His body has forgotten nothing. It eases the Cessna down onto the water.

There was no way she could pass it up, she thought, but she still had a little time
to make that decision. “Seat belts fastened?” Kevin asked getting the girls in his
life off on their trip to Virginia Beach. Giving Shelby a kiss through the window, he
came over to Susanne's door of The Times company vehicle, squeezing her
hand, and a light kiss on her lips, Susanne edged out of the drive. With suitcases
in the trunk, and snacks for the trip, “Here we come Atlantic Ocean,” sang Shelby

When Eben and Albert came up the drive to the side door, George Channing,
Martie's twelve-year-old brother jumped down from the door-steps and began to
laugh us though he was laughing for a wager. " Oh, ho ! Eben'll be the first to go

grinning almost from ear to ear. " Which door is it up over?" " Don't know whether
it's this or the back door. I was settin' on the steps here, and I heard mother askin'
Mart' ...

not only was the deliveryman coming up the stairs, but so were Rondell and
Reyanne. Both the deliveryman and Rondell tackled Stretch, who was putting up
a good fight.

She was the top of the line of eleven children and though while growing up, she'd
do "anything to keep out of the kitchen," she learned all she knows by watching

garden. In 1942, at the age of eighteen, Leah returned to New Orleans and found
herself waiting tables in the French Quarter of the city. Not only did Leah love it,

“In my head I know that, but my heart isn't getting the message,” Carrie said. She
swiped at a tear. He rested his cheek against her hair. “That's what's difficult

” “I don't want to be on the set anymore when you or any reasonable facsimile are
filming love scenes,” she said. That nude wedding-night scene was coming up,
