"Summer in Cimarron"
Rhonda lives in a small, old trailer at the Cimarron Highway Motel and Trailer Park. She doesn’t have a car, she doesn’t have a refrigerator, and she doesn’t know anyone. But Rhonda knows trouble. Her husband left her for a woman he met on the internet. He also took Rhonda’s money. But something about the beautiful, lonely mountain town of Cimarron begins to pull at Rhonda. There is something about the fresh air, the mountains, and, of all things, a young black bear who visits the trailer park one night. Rhonda makes friends, and then she makes a decision that will change her life forever.
"Lunch at the Dixie Diner"
Andrea is no one special. A night nurse in a city an hour away, she drives to work at sunset, drives home at sunrise, washes her truck, and then visits her mother Miley at the Fairfield Nursing Home. And pretty much every day in her life is the same. Some days Miley doesn’t know who Andrea is or why she’s visiting, but every week they still have lunch together at the Dixie Diner. But even though Miley is old and losing her memory, she knows something that may lead to Andrea’s happiness. And the old lady takes action.
