IT WAS A VERY GOOD YEAR - Page Text Content


1: FAIRY TALES CAN COME TRUE IT CAN HAPPEN TO YOU IF YOU'RE YOUNG AT HEART | Once upon a time, in a land far away (Athens, Louisiana), there lived a girl and a boy. Somewhere, during high school, the boy fell in love with the girl (well, developed a serious crush). The girl hardly knew he existed and upon graduation, both went their separate ways. After many years, marriages, kids, and grandkids, the two met again at a class reunion in two thousand nine and the girl suddenly realized he "existed". After months of e-mails, text messages, phone calls and a long distance date, they decided to spend their final years together in the enchanted land of Schwarzenegger in sunny Cal-ee-forni-a So---without hesitation, he gave up his castle and land, all of his wealth, gold and silver, as well as his position as head of the Knights of King Smith of Arcadia's Round Table, jumped on his trusty, white stallion (actual a silver Firebird) and tore across the countryside looking for Queen Lynnette's castle. Alas, he found her in a modest, comfortable home in Hemet, a small quaint village in the shadow of the kingdom of the lost angels. Being too old by now to scale the walls he just knocked at the door, and the following is an account of how they spent June 2010 to June 2011.
