I had a Pony.

For a long time, I thought that this was the only picture of me and Raindrop.

it haunts me every time I share this to think of that 30 something woman who died in a ditch in Abbotsford BC last year she fell through the cracks of the health care system she had very involved family who said of her "she had a happy childhood." this was a week after I made this meme when I read that in the newspaper, it was all I could do to not start crying and screaming in public but that would have resulted in me being taken away by first responders who I am the most afraid of of all people December 12, 2013 this is the 50th share

His name was Raindrop. (Chilliwack, British Columbia Canada, 1970s)

Recently, this image turned up: me Raindrop and my Uncle Bill. My Mom’s younger brother and second youngest sibling.

He took me fishing and was the only other person who rode Raindrop.

He worked for the railroad and died at 35; freezing to death.
