I am STILL wondering how Ronee' managed to escape from my den and managed to wander all the way to Robert's den....LOL


Oh no! That little SCAMP!
I thought she had gone to camp!

But nooo...Ronee' wanted to play;
Better than that, she wanted to go away!

So she snuck on a boat, and she ended up at Robert's den,
And now her parents are frantic since I can't remember when!

She is wanderin' about, drinkin' rootbeer by the case (*not really*),
And I am ready to go after her, ready to start off a mad and vicious chase!

HOW did she get away? I would like to find the answer to that and more,
And if she doesn't get back soon, her little bottom is bound to get sore!

HOW am I gonna' explain this to her folks back home?
She isn't at her camp: she's done taken a vacation--alone!

Ended up on the ocean she did, now is havin' herself a fine ol' time,
But if her tummy starts hurtin', I'm NOT going to listen to her whine!


ronee' le-anne reaux is 10 1/2 years old (but looks considerably younger; she is small for her age). she has dark skin the color of sun-kissed honey, big, black eyes, and shoulder-length black hair that is feathered at the bangs and hanging loose in the back. her hair is wavy and vey thick in nature. last seen, she was wearing a bright sunflower-yellow teeshirt and black pants and brown loafers.

she is disabled: she walks on a pair of bright pink forearm (lofstrand) crutches and wears braces on her legs. she has juvenile rheumatoid arthritis and asthma and is allergic to beestings, penicillin (and all cillins), and peanuts. if exposed to any of these things, she can get very sick with an anaphylactic shock reaction in a matter of moments. she carries an "epi-pen" with her at all times. if ever she gets stung or eats anything with peanuts, follow the instructions on the epi-pen and give her an injection; then call for an ambulance IMMEDIATELY. she is also on medications for her arthritis and is currently under a doctor's care.

Such a delightful character, who you write about convincingly. The piece is bubbly and funny - a characteristic that I see you carry through many of your pieces! Made me smile.

"Lost: One Small Child Named Ronee' *FICTION!!"

Construction and execution right on point with this write.

Excellent penning Karen!

You are the greatest at these narrative type fictions.

Continued blessings of love, peace, and joy to you friend,

So real it's sureal. Poignant write.

So enjoyed the Indian Summer of my beloved northwoods Wisconsin. With his collar, Dad is up, breathing on his own, talking, and exercising. His sores are healing, and, with time, he may do more than hang on again.

I really appreciate the compassion that is evident in all your poetry...and, I should add, you seem to compose and rhyme so effortlessly. This one just chugs along like a freight train, and then suddenly there is the prose section which brings the sobering reality and tugs at the heart's empathy. Well done.

ok sis, this is very good. I didn't know that she had wandered about. Is it safe for a 10˝ year old girl to be by herself??? Lovely write sis, I enjoy the Ronee stories very much, it's just that I haven't been feeling all that well lately. I'll climb back up. But right now tho, poems seem to be all I can really handle. Thnx so much for sharing. May the Lord Jesus bless you and Karla, and all of those whom you love, and be with you always, and at your side constantly. With much love in my heart, joy to the world, peace on earth, & ((((((((((MANY SISTERLY HUGGGGSSSS)))))))))), your little sister, Barbie

I love this. Despite the child having special needs, this work reminds us that she's still just a kid who likes doing kid things. Eye opening and mind bending.

Great immagination, Karen, to come up with this little semi-scare-the-hell-out-of-everone. LOL Really, a good exercise in the daily occurance somewhere of a child missing. Good.

These are endearing and captivating stories, Karen and I would love to see you continue them... if you are revisiting them now, perhaps you DO have this in mind?! It would be well-worth it! You bring Ronee alive and through her we could perhaps gain insight and understanding as to her "condition" and her perspectives on life. She has such youthful vibrancy, we could all learn and receive much from her... like her "creator", perhaps?! WTG Ronee!! The weaving in of the French is delightful and adds a sparkle, too.!
