Here's an Invitation to a Wedding

If the boy, Dee, was slow, the race track was where this stopped. No one could match his skills and abilities with a race horse. Winning was easy for him.

“That boy has a way with horses!” John observed and enjoyed the telling of his little brother’s accomplishment. “He’s so small he has an advantage. All the owners have his schedule filled and he is making money. It’s kind of ironic that the one some thought was slow is making more of himself that anyone else.” John was prone to observe this sort of thing.

John tossed the letters he brought home down on the kitchen table. He knew Zona always enjoyed hearing from her folks and they kept in-touch by mail.

“Oh look, John! Here’s an invitation to a wedding.” Zona laughed up at John. “I’ll read it to you.”

“You are cordially invited to a wedding in the year of 1901. Announcing the marriage of Miss Mary Frances Keef the daughter of Mr. And Mrs. John Keef, pioneers of the community at McGree Indian territory, to William Matthew Collins.”

“Well, well, your brother Bill is getting married?”

Zona was immediately going over plans in her mind for the preparations they would have to make for that occasion.

“Sounds like it.” She answered.
