Shep the Musical: Part 1

IN THE November 15 ISSUE

by Joe Ozier

It all began on a hot June day in Madera, California. My mother and I were driving from Fresno to about 20 miles north, to look at some used slate stepping stones that had been advertised in the newspaper. Mom convinced me to go with her because I was feeling depressed about a recent break-up with a girlfriend. She said it would be good for me to get out of the house for a while. Little did I know just how good it would be!
