The sunset on the Biloxi beach was breathtaking. Vicki took off her bikini and followed her husband Terry into the warm water of the gulf. They swam out to where it was chest high, stood up and smiled at each other. Today was their 20th wedding anniversary. Three children later, they couldn't believe their luck in choosing one another as lifetime mates. It had always been true love between the two.
Damn it! It was that stupid dream again. Vicki awoke and wiped away her tears angrily as she realized that today would have been their anniversary. Why did that jerk have to go and leave them anyway? Here she was, dealing cards at The Beau Rivage casino, and doing her best to raise the kids single-handedly.
Maybe fairy tales sometimes do come true, but in her case they sure hadn't. Vicki was due for a new prince charming. (150)
Thank you to Joe Claro, Lisa's husband for this week's fantastic photo! BBF is fun, and you can play too. Pretend that the picture of the river is the cover of a book. On the inside jacket, you have 150 words to entice the reader to buy your book. Lisa Ricard Claro gives us a week to think about next week's entry (she's gracious like that).

Thank you very much for your continued prayers for Lisa's nephew Daniel and his friend, who were burned in a house fire last week. The other day, Lisa posted this update on her blog about the two teens:
"Great news about Daniel! He's off the respirator and is eating JELL-O and chicken soup. Yay! He is still quite sedated, but his prognosis is excellent. The worst part for him now is the changing of the dressings which takes about 90 minutes and is excruciating. He will be in the hospital for many weeks while his healing is monitored and it is determined if/when skin grafts should be done.
The young lady is still in ICU and on a respirator. She has contracted pneumonia which is complicating her chance for recovery.
Your thoughts and prayers are appreciated!"
