Traumatized by a previous experience, Brenda has vowed to stay clear of relationships until her daughter is in college.

Determined to prove that she can trust him, he bonds with the teenager who’s been missing a father figure for years.

Twenty-years ago

To celebrate the ninety-fifth birthday of George Winston, the family patriarch, his sons Carl and Ludwig threw a big party and invited their own children and grandchildren. Old George, still alert and as acerbic and facetious as he’d been in his youth, responded to the birthday wishes with a speech to his offsprings and made them play a game. He displayed a card with the word PLANS.

“I want you, kids, to have a goal and succeed in life. For that purpose, you need to have plans. Pull a card and show us what your plans are to reach your dream.”

To start the game, his oldest grandson, Dr. Steve Winston, pulled a card from the box held by the old man.

“I have SAILING on my card,” Steve declared.

“SAILING PLANS for you, Steve. Will you be able to execute this plan?”

“Maybe. It’d be a nice dream to sail far away.”

The great-grandchildren followed suit, pulling a card from the box.

“Show us your cards, kids.”

The children waved their cards. The parents read and laughed.

“Here are the results,” George announced. “DATING PLANS for Matt Winston and KISSING PLANS for his little brother Royce. RESCUE PLANS for Rafael Lopez and HEALING PLANS for Jason Randal. BABY PLANS for Audrey Kent, WEDDING PLANS for her brother Tyler, and FAMILY PLANS for her brother Tim. VACATION PLANS for toddler Denise Lambert and LAST-CHANCE PLANS for her baby brother Rick.”

“These are fun plans, Popoff,” ten-year-old Matt commented.

“I will not be around, but I’ll be watching you from up there.” The old man lifted a finger to the sky. “I hope you can carry out your plans and fulfill your dreams.”

And so each of the great-grandchildren had a story to tell.
