Celebrating 90 Glorious Years AND 430 Episodes of Bonanza! (by DebbieB)

Summary: I wrote this story for David Dortort’s 90th birthday party to which I was invited. In the story I used all 430 episode titles so the story might sound a bit strange to some. I had the story bound in book form for Mr. Dortort and given to him as my gift celebrating his 90 glorious years. It was my way of saying thank you for the joy he brought to so many lives and especially for the friendship that developed between us that I will always cherish. It has never been shared with anyone except David, until now.
