We always hope that the stories we share with you on The Apple Seed spark memories for you to share with the people that you love. Sometimes those memories are sparked by listening to personal stories, and other times by listening to tall tales and fairy tales. So sit back, relax, and get ready to have the memories wash over you as you listen to stories about Motorcycles, blessings, and rainy days. On today’s episode, enjoy the following: "Buffalo and Turtle (Wyandotte)" by Dovie Thomason from Voices of the Animal People (11:53) We love animal stories here on The Apple Seed, partly because there's so much for people to learn from them. In this story from Dovie Thomason, buffalo challenges turtle to a swimming contest. Take a listen and see if you can spot the lesson at its center. "Motorcycle Momma" by Glenda Bonin from Family Gazette (5:39) Here's a little personal story from Glenda Bonin about getting a ride to school in a new and exciting way on a day when she hoped she wouldn't have to go to school at all. "Trouble Boxes and Blessing Bundles" by Steve Otto from Potpourri (8:17) Up next is a story from Steve Otto that asks the question, "If you could take for your own the troubles of someone else and live those troubles instead of the troubles you're already living, would you?" "Roots and Raccoons" by Molly Catron from Do Lord. Oh, Do Lord. Oh, Do you remember me? (16:19) This next story is a personal one and it's from Molly Catron about going to a family reunion. We hope it will bring to mind a memory of your own about reunions and tripts to share with the people you love. "Rainy Day at Roses" by Anthony Burcher from Anthony Squished My Banana (7:16) We're going to wrap up today with a story from Anthony Burcher. We've played many of Anthony's stories on the show that you can look up in our archive or on the podcast. This one's about a beach trip and a sunburn. Can you relate?
