Fandango’s Friday Flashback — January 24

Wouldn’t you like to expose your newer readers to some of you earlier posts that they might never have seen? Or remind your long term followers of posts that they might not remember?

Each Friday I will publish a post I wrote on this exact date in a previous year.

How about you? Why don’t you reach back into your own archives and highlight a post that you wrote on this very date in a previous year? You can repost your Friday Flashback post on your blog and pingback to this post. Or you can just write a comment below with a link to the post you selected.

If you’ve been blogging for less than a year, go ahead and choose a post that you previously published on this day (the 24th) of any month within the past year and link to that post in a comment.

#100WW — The Ocean

E3FB10A8-0896-4CF0-B62B-8966A3A3AF14“I want to see the ocean,” Dorothy said when her parents asked her what she wanted most.

“Of course,” her mother said, eyes filling with tears, “Dad and I will take you to see the ocean.”

Dorothy smiled. Now tears were running down her cheeks.

Just a few days after her request, Dorothy and her parents flew to Massachusetts. The first thing Dorothy did was run out onto a rocky shore and marvel at what she saw. “It’s beautiful,” she said.

Dorothy was losing her battle with leukemia. “A few more months,” the doctors said. And Kansas has no ocean.

    Nice “intro” — Stroke Survivor — and the photo, from two years ago, is gorgeous.

      A pair of Cs, huh? Sounds like my grades for Algebra 1 and 2.

        😉 heh heh heh I dodged a ‘D”, possibly because I had a pair of Cs…. (not that my instructor was focused on ’em, but two classmates in Algebra were. Nerds still didn’t easily get laid then ((I didn’t do THAT I’m just digging myself a deeper hole, so am shutting up now. 😐 )

    Too often true to life. A life cut down too soon.
