Olga Veracruz came to America with a dream….


The timeless dream that has transcended the centuries…


The dream of an adventurous spirit searching for a better life….dream that makes us all Americans.
Olga made her new home in the New England area. It was there, through friends, that she met the love
of her life, Bo Ventura Furtado — another adventurous spirit that had made his way to America a few
years earlier.
Bo Ventura had embraced the life of a long-haul truck driver. He had come here to see America, and
from his big rig, he had a front row seat. With a few days off, Bo Ventura pointed his rig and his heart
north.

He was on his way to Olga’s.
Olga had been watching the Discovery Channel and a film about Kentucky dairy farms. She knew that
Bo Ventura’s next run would take him through Kentucky on his way to Amarillo, Texas. And although Bo
Ventura didn’t know it yet, Olga had made up her mind that she was going along. She wanted to see
cows in the fields of Kentucky.
They had spent a few days together, and when it was time for Bo Ventura to leave, there was Olga,
planted firmly in the passenger’s seat of that 18-wheeler.

He told her that she couldn’t go along, but she
had already made up her mind. She was going to see Kentucky and nothing was going to change that.
They headed for the open road.
From high up in that rig, Olga was seeing the breathtaking sights of America. She was now sharing in
the adventure of Bo Ventura’s front row seat. As the couple continued south for Texas, they crossed the
Kentucky line, and there, Olga saw cows in the fields, and for that, she was happy.


Olga had decided to take a break from it all and climbed into the sleeper cab. Shortly after, is when Bo
Ventura’s truck hit that icy patch of highway.
As the truck jackknifed, Olga was thrown forward from the sleeper compartment and through the windshield.
She was dragged by the wheels of the truck for a short distance, and then thrown to where her
body would hit a signpost along the edge of the road. The truck and trailer overturned, making a loud
crashing noise heard by people in their homes nearby.

Bo Ventura climbed out of the wreckage and went searching for Olga.
Seventeen-year-old Patricia Welsh, found him kneeling there, beside Olga, with his face in his hands
sobbing. For everything that had just gone so horribly, horribly wrong on that wintry stretch of Kentucky
highway — just four days before Christmas — something was about to go very, very right. For, lying
there, on that snowy bank beside Olga’s lifeless body — still attached by the umbilical cord — was the
baby boy she had carried for eight months, torn from its mother womb in the violence of the accident


Young Patricia Welsh had the good sense to wrap the baby in a blanket. Some fifteen minutes later
when paramedics arrived, the baby was blue. But when they cut the cord and touched the newborn, it
began to cry. Had Patricia Welsh not wrapped the baby in a blanket, paramedics said there would have
been no chance for its survival.
As the father and baby were whisked away, Bo Ventura made it a point in the mist of his shocking grief
to find out the young girl’s name.
The baby was rushed to a nearby hospital and then transferred to Kosairs Children’s Hospital in Louisville.


For all the careful examination, the only thing doctors could find wrong with the little baby was a
tiny scratch on its knee.
It was a miracle. The baby was perfectly healthy.
When Bo Ventura was finally able to hold his son, he cradled him in his arms and beamed as the tiny
baby smiled at its daddy.
Bo Ventura would name the baby Patrick, after Patricia, the young girl that had saved his life.

    We spent a lot of time at her home. Maybe so her mother could keep an eye on us. Mrs. Spencer made sure to be around, offering drinks, snacks, chit chat. I noticed that she was fairly young herself. Granted at my age, anyone over 25 was old, but she was probably mid-30s, divorced. If she was a indiction of how Carley would develop, maybe I should wait. Mrs. Spencer had fuller breasts and a nice butt. She appeared to be in great shape for her “advanced” age. I knew she was keeping an eye on me as much as I was on her and her younger daughter. Her eldest, Sharon was away at college at the time. With Mrs. Spencer around we mostly limited ourselves to holding hands and sneaking in a few light kisses. One day Mrs. Spencer caught us by surprise walking in as I’d slid my hand up from Carley’s stomach to rub her right breast through her shirt. She didn’t really need a bra yet, so I could feel her nipple, hard, through her shirt. Just this much contact had me hard also.

    What are the Types of Loans in Ohio depending on the purpose
    Specific purpose payday loans in Ohio. Funds received in debt may be spent only for a specific purpose specified in the loan agreement.
    Non-purpose loan. The debtor may spend the money received at his discretion.
    Most popular specific purpose payday loans in Ohio are:

    House loan. The most common, of course, is a mortgage when the purchased property acts as collateral for a loan. Sometimes a youth loan is issued, with lighter conditions for debtors. Still quite common is a housing loan that does not imply purchased housing in the form of collateral.
    Car loan – payday loans in Ohio to a car or similar vehicle. The key is often the purchased goods, making the terms of the loan better. Also, loan conditions are improved: car insurance, life and health insurance of the borrower, and receiving a salary to the account of the creditor bank.
    Land loan. To purchase a plot for construction or agricultural activities.
    Consumer. For purchases in modern supermarkets, equipment stores, you can take a personal loan right at the point of sale. Often, specialists located there can contact the bank and get a regular or fast payday loans. Borrowed funds automatically pay for the goods, and the consultant explains when and how to re-pay the debt.
