11: I busted out laughing as he looked at me, giggled, turned his entire body so he could see which direction he was heading next and teetered off with cape flowing behind him. I was tickled to pieces that he ended up placing in that costume. It was great, and he was the cutest headless horseman I could ever hope to run in to. :-)" - Pam Butterfield | "I was walking along heading to the office at CCHPC when this broad-shouldered short person tumbled out of the door as I approached. At first glance I couldn't tell what it was supposed to be, but as I got closer, I had to laugh because this shorty had no head! I looked closer and saw the fake blood, the pumpkin in hand... and cute little toothy smile peeking out at me between the buttons of the shirt!
12: All things grow better with love. | I | i9ii | I | In the fall of 2010, a new pony appeared on the scene. Adam named him Lightning. | Adam at the 2010 CCHPC Awards Banquet, with one of his trophies!

20: Adam and Lightning make a great team. Sometimes Lightning takes a break doing what he loves the most - eating! | "I explained to Adam that his pony was a dun, because he had a dorsal stripe down his back, and zebra striping on his legs. Next thing I knew, Adam is telling all his friends about his pony that is part zebra! Now he's borrowing my zebra leg wraps. (Chuckle)" -- Aunt Fran
