33 www.wrightsvillebeachmagazine.com WBM pushed open the gates which led onto the gangway I turned to see Frank on the second-story porch conferring with the ever-present carpenters who, like Macey, had become members of our family. We waved and I turned back to see William carrying Macey down the stairs to where the water lapped at the bottom step. He carefully placed Macey in the water and waded in to swim beside him. Quickly Macey increased the distance between them and with a sudden thrust hurled him-self heavenward. We stared in incredu-lity, and turning toward the house, I screamed, “Frank, that’s Macey!!” and pointed to the sky. The carpenters clapped and cheered, William slapped the water with self congratulatory shrieks and Frank hurled himself down the stairs and Macey gets his legs back, a breakthrough of immense proportions.
