2. A PONY FARM

 The trip has brought back some memories, memories which I feel inclined to share. Did you know, for instance, that our father owned a pony farm? Apparently - and I did talk to Jimson McStugarty about this - there is still a small stable just along the H19 south east of Sevastopol, in the direction of Yalta, there is a stable that apparently father used to tend to the ponies! He would rent them out to the children for a ride, and apparently he was booked solid in the months of May and June, when folks would hire him for parties. I guess we never knew this, being that we were usually with mother during these months.
