Alice’s note: This story first appeared in my blog Cactus are Cool on Oct. 7, 2016.

Alice’s note: This story first appeared in my blog The Bright Lights of Muleshoe on October 1, 2018.

The kids have grown, gymnastics is a pleasant memory, we are family friends, and we still go see Dr. Purdy for our aches and pains.
