This week we interviewed Lucy , a mild-mannered DMV investigator from Livingston,

CA, while her friend (we'll call him "Ken") watched in horror.

Youth rides wild horse

Tiffany, 9, of Lathrop, CA, saddled up and just started riding this wild horse that she just happened to find locked up in a corral. Several times this bronc, which she dubbed Galaxy, reared up, did a couple flips, stood on its head, and everything! But Tiffany never fell off. Jeannie, and visiting cousin, Aileen, could only watch and hope for the best. "It was nothing," Tiffany said afterwards. "I do this sort of thing all the time."
"That's right, she does," Jeannie said, chewing on a fingernail.

Andy potty-trained!
He's A Big Boy Now

Andy of Santa Ana, youngest son of Greg and June, and Aileen and Bryan's little brother, is now officially potty-trained! Congratulations, Andy! Certainly, all or most of our readers can remember exactly where they were when it happened to them. In a recent nationwide poll, being potty-trained ranked right up there with the most exciting things that can happen to a person in their lifetime. Now that he's a BIG BOY, Andy says he's ready to go camping with his Uncle Doug.



The Editor's Desk

So, how do you like the new name for the newsletter? We almost went to press under the name The Harbinger. And we came very close to calling it The Happy Hairball (seriously). But, fears of massive subscription cancellations changed our minds. So, Hard Copy it is. Happy New Year!

And keep those letters to the editor coming!
