    Fortunately, as they pondered their fate, a mysterious stranger roared up on a gleaming Harley, doffed his cap, and drawled, “ looks like you folks could use some assistance!”

  • Dana

    Fortunately, Di regained her voice and asked, “Do you know as much about fixing cars as you seem to know about riding a motorcycle?”

  • Pat

    Unfortunately, the rescuer was mesmerized by Di’s violet eyes and got tangled up in his cycle as he disembarked and soon found himself with it on top of him. “Ouch” was the word of the day as he tried to pull his leg out.

  • Julia Stephanie Tasker

    Fortunately, Honey had been paying attention when darkly handsome Brian had patched up their many and varied injuries, reaching behind her, she grabbed the first aid kit and commanded “Trixie, get the tire iron.”

  • Pat

    Unfortunately, the stranger’s leg was starting to bleed again, so the girls loaded him in the back seat and zoomed off to Sleepyside Hospital.

  • Pat

    Unfortunately right then, Moms walked in with Bobby. He had his hand stuckted in a mustard jar that held one of his frogs. Moms tried everything short of breaking the jar to get his fat little hand out but it wasn’t budging. “Bobby, hopefully Brian can holp,” she told the tearful little tyke.

  • Dana

    Fortunately, Bobby’s eyes lit on Honey, one of his favoritest people in the whole world, and his tears instantly dried as he happily rushed over to her.

  • Dana

    Fortunately, Brian was able to take his eyes off of Honey for a moment, and he swept his little brother into his arms before the glass could cause any damage.

  • Pat

    Unfortunately, Bobby’s little Leopard frog, in finding himself now free of the strange environment he had been experiencing the past hour or so, jumped out of the ER room and down the hospital corridor.

  • Dana

    Fortunately, Dr. Ferris, who was used to the Belden children’s antics, entered the ER just then and promptly swooped up the little leopard frog.

  • Pat

    Unfortunately, Bobby founded the plaster of paris Brian and the ortho doc were using to put the cast on Brad’s leg and all of a sudden, ooky gooky ooze was being squished in those chubby little hands of his.

  • Dana

    Fortunately, the very sick little girl lying in the bed next to Brad found this amusing, and she smiled and felt much better at Bobby’s antics.

  • Pat

    Unfortunately, it was quite a chore getting Bobby cleaned up – its amazing where all that plaster can get to and unfortunately Bobby had a bunch of it in his golden curls.

  • Pat Bennett

    Unfortunately for all the eardrums within hearing distance, Honey’s shriek, when she figured out just who Brad was – just about burst.

    Pointing and shaking and staring and mouth open and jumping up and down, she finally got out, “OH MY STARS, It’s Brad Pitt” and then keeled over in a dead faint.

  • Susan

    Fortunately, Brad had excellent reflexes and caught Honey expertly in his arms before she could crack her head on the unforgiving linoleum floor.

  • Pat Bennett

    Unfortunately, Honey wasn’t waking up but fortunately there were at the ER so she was placed on a bed and they called a medic.

  • Deanna Berger

    Unfortunately, Honey’s exclamation was loud enough to attract the attention of a large number of nurses, aides and assorted other hospital personnel, plus a few visitors started a medium-sized swarm toward the corner of the ER where Brad was watching the Naval Corpsman revive Honey,

  • Dana

    Fortunately, a lovely angel of a cardiac scrub nurse named Susan took charge in a kind but firm manner and held back the swarm that had gathered.

  • Pat Bennett

    Unfortunately, Honey kept muttering “what happened? Where am I?”

    Fortunately our darling angel Susan kept a firm control on the crowd and kept them from swarming all over Honey.

  • Susan

    Fortunately, at that moment, Brad had been finally taken away to have his poor broken leg treated, so he didn’t hear Honey’s yell.

  • Mary

    Unfortunately, Brian did, and he folded his arms over his chest and tried to glare at Honey, but only ended up looking as pouty as Bobby when he didn’t get his way.

  • Pat Bennett

    Unfortunately, as Brian leaned over to steal a kiss, Honey raised up just then and “OW” was heard all over the ER as Brian grabbed his nose.

  • Dana

    I’m going to try to craft one “Fortunately” to respond to both “Unfortunatelies” at once! 🙂

    Fortunately, Honey appreciated Brian’s attempt at romance and gave him a quick kiss before, fully recovered, she entered detective mode and ran toward the sound of the explosion.

  • Pat Bennett

    Fortunately it was Trixie. Grabbing Honey’s hand, they both raced down the hall to see what had gone BOOM.
