Angels Never Say Hello! by Dottie Walters. Ka bang! Suddenly I heard it-the clanging noise of pounding and kicking and yelling at the door of my heart! I ran out of the room and down the corridor to find a pay phone. I asked the operator for the giant of the 1960's typing world - IBM!

Breakfast at McDonald's by DeNell Davis. "As I turned around I smelled a horrible "dirty body" smell, and there standing behind me were two poor homeless men."

Piano Lessons: A True Story by Mildred Hondorf. Over the months he tried and tried while I listened and cringed and tried to encourage him. At the end of each weekly lesson he always say, "My Mom's going to hear me play someday." But it seemed hopeless. He just did not have any inborn ability.

The Sandpiper Robert Peterson. "She chattered little girl talk as we strolled up the beach, but my mind was on other things. When I left for home, Wendy said it had been a happy day. Feeling surprisingly better, I smiled at her and agreed."

The Big Sneeze Anonymous. This class would not pray during the commencements: not by choice but because of a recent court ruling prohibiting it. The principal and several students were careful to stay within the guidelines allowed by the ruling.
