Monica and Larry found no place good enough for their honeymoon.  Even NYC and Paris paled in comparison to the amazing experiences they had had on their space flights.  They decided to build “Heart’s Desire,” a satellite city.

Money was no problem; they  knew  the rudiments ofasking for government grants.  Thus “Heart’s Desire” was founded.

I would choose to be Grandma Blogger, and have you pull up a chair, my website before you, while I tell you of some days of yore. I have experienced life much differently than most of you.

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...
