Everything is always okay in the end,
if it's not, then it's not the end.

Thanks for sharing that, V and SJC. Now I'm going to have to get my father to send me his copy.
You can't judge a book by its cover.

The only thing that matters is the ending. It's the most important part of the story.

V, this was in the Smithsonian Magazine? I get that magazine. Shows you I have been way too preoccupied lately. Never saw it. Thanks for sharing!

Wow! What a ride!

Thank you. Nice article. I loved the end quote about flying. I used to dream of flying every night, for years, because my family had moved away from the home that was my "Neverland" in all the best senses... I wanted to return so much, each night I would go to sleep and dream that I could fly from Illinois to New Jersey and visit all my friends...and be back in time for breakfast with my parents!

Welcome dramaced :wave: Nice to have you here! What a great dream.

V, thanks for the info. I hope I still have my copy but if not I can read yours!
