Joe rides to victory with a pony called Lightning in the second in this fantastic new trilogy of
Joe is delighted that his pony, Lightning, is skilled at mounted games. The two of them make a great pair and Joe can't wait for them to try out for the Prince Phillip Cup team. There's just one problem-Lightning seems quite small now that Joe is growing so fast. What will he do when he's too big to ride her? And what will happen to Lightning if she is sold?
This book contains a collection of incidents involving shopping with Ding-A-Ling, my mother-in-law. It is not meant to ridicule her, but simply is a recounting of her ways of twisting words and thoughts. She was born with an obvious learning disability. It is difficult for her to find appropriate words and to pronounce them correctly. As a person who was blessed at birth with the ability to manipulate words, I think the good Lord put me with Ding-A-Ling on purpose. My job has been to straighten out the grammatical mistakes she has made; she, however, has viewed this in a different light. I am sure she has always felt that I have been making fun of her. Nothing could be further from the truth; I have only wanted to keep others from ridiculing her. Many people think Ding-A-Ling's mistakes are due to senility. At her age, this could be partially true. I have concluded, however, that deep inside her brain is more intelligence than people give her credit for. Her ability to analyze numbers is phenomenal. It is simply a case of an area of her brain not operating correctly when the manipulation of words is required.
