Summary: Someone has to be average in his family and it may as well be Jon…
Prompt: Random roll: 3. Urban/Suburban Fantasy and 2. Dogs of the Never Never.

Jon was determined to enjoy life here and now, not sixty years down the road when retirement turned people into the kids they wished they’d been.
