I’ve learned the story of why this bike is parked here at Mazie’s house every day for ten hours.  Sad, really.  Jake is the rider.  Jake and Mazie were married for 24 years.  They divorced 37 years ago and neither remarried.  Mazie has been diagnosed with a fatal disease.  Jake rues the lost years but when he heard that Mazie could no longer leave her house, he visited her.  They have decided to make part of their wedding vows come true –  the part about “until death do us part.”  Too bad they missed all the years of being together in health.

By necessity you are among those who come after me and I will tell you of those who came before. Once upon a time in a little house on a prairie - oops, change that lest I commit plagiarism - and change that “house on the prairie” to “dugout on the prairie.” So my story begins...

    I must be a glass half full person, but I think this story is sweet. Something broke and now it is fixed. While there’s breath, there’s hope. 🙂
