(And now for something totally different) A Children’s Story

Little Abigail had spent a good part of her young life playing with her older sister Lynn.  Summers were particularly good times, with warm days spent out of doors, massive blue skies towering above her head and those refreshing, gentle afternoon breezes.  Chasing butterflies with a net.  Chasing the family cat with a lot of giggles, but not with any luck.   And quiet evenings spent lying on the soft front lawn, watching the lighting-bugs and the stars in the sky, patiently waiting to see which one would out twinkle the other.
