A humble and grateful confession! Many months ago, when I had completed and had published my third book, Lofdocs Stories: Short and Sweet, with the subtitle An Octogenarians Oracles, I was asked the question Will this, your third book, be your final contribution to the world of literature? I responded by saying, I would love to continue exploring new vistas, but the laws of nature will always have the final say; after all, I am eighty-nine years old. Well, now, the rest of the story. I guess I am no different than anyone else; after all, we are all birds of a feather, are we not? When the mountain climber was asked Why do you climb mountains? his answer was Because it is there. And so it is with me. I write because I am still here. But I confess that I reverently hope that I would still be around to continue to tell you the rest of my stories. So yes, dear reader, I have poured many hours of pure joy into this, my fourth book. There are stories titled Crying Out in the Wilderness, The Ten Armed Swimmer, Quackery, The Sand Dollar, Treasures of a Nursing Home, etc. I have tried to be accurate, sincere, and entertaining. I have given you a new world of thoughts and remembrances that you will hopefully embrace and enjoy. I sincerely believe this, my fourth volume, represents the best of all my lifetime literary efforts. I hope you will embrace and enjoy my little stories as much as I have loved writing them. I now give you Lofdocs fourth book. Oh, by the way, perhaps you might want to know about my use of the name Lofdoc as my pseudonym. No secret. I love fishing, so Lots of Fishing Doc. Yes, I am a retired doctor of medicine. I had practiced medicine (solo) for over thirty years in Ohio. I now devote most of my time caring for my medically wounded angel, my wife of sixty-five years.

Memories Not Forgotten by Madame Vapala Madame Vapala recalls the many memories of her sometimes charming, often times devastating childhood growing up in Utah in the 1940s and 50s. As she struggles to grow up under the strict rule of her abusive parents, Vapala learns to find solace within herself and appreciate the love, happiness, comedy, and adventure that went hand in hand with a childhood filled with pain, sadness, confusion, and suffering. Memories Not Forgotten shares a detailed account of her memories spanning from the age of two through her teenage years, strung together delicately to reflect how bitter and sweet a young girl's life can be. About the Author Madame Vapala is a self-proclaimed "old-fashioned grandmother," trapped in the 1940s and 50s. She loves crocheting, canning, and cooking, and donates many of her homemade items to various organizations. She also enjoys writing children's fictional short stories. Vapala wrote this book to give her strength and find acceptance in the trials and tribulations she experienced a lifetime ago and wishes it may inspire others to find hope despite their own troubled lives. She believes, as human beings, we all have flaws in our nature and, while our actions can have a devastating effect on others, we should be able to accept the good with the bad and learn to forgive, as God forgives and loves us all.
