Bennington Banner saturday May 8, 1966-3 woman s w or it Twenty acres More or less 29 a a horse named by Carlo Wolter late april Rains took the last Frost from the Stony Fields and rocks pushed up where none had been before. Charles pointed to the big stones and said a Well Well have to dig them out before we Spade the a Why bother a i said hopefully a a let a Plant around them. Its a no they have to come out a Charles insisted. So we strained our backs and Bent our shoulders to rocks As big As barrels. We pried them up with crowbars and Iron pipes and while Charles held a Rock suspended i propped stones underneath Only to see it slide Back in the Hole again. But with endless endurance and barely escaping Many squashed toes we got them out. The warfare against a Rocky Hillside Garden was accompanied by an annual bout with crab and Witch grass. The grass sprouted Lush and Green before we could Spade the Fields and weaved Yards and Yards of spidery underground nets. From the tiniest Root fragment a new Plant grew in an amazingly Short time regardless of the weather. The vagaries of the weather that Spring were As provoking As the grass. First it was too wet then too dry then too cold then too hot. Weeds sprung up like mushrooms and tilling the soil by hand was Back breaking. One morning while Charles was away i stabbed a grass choked Field with my spading Fork making Little Progress. And to think that there was a time when i complained about skating rehearsals.

Drops of perspiration smarted my eyes. A if Only we had a horse a i grumbled wiping my forehead. A maybe we should be accepted one offered to us. We sure could use it imagine my Surprise when i looked up and saw a big Gray Mare contentedly grazing nearby. I must be Sun struck i thought. But when my eyes cleared the horse was still there. She came slowly toward me. Frightened i backed against the cellar door. There she turned and keeping me Between her and the Wall ate the creeping Phlox from the Rock Garden. She paid no attention when a Short toothless Man came running around the barn shouting a Milly Milly a a a done to know what in hell to do with her a he said. A she always runs away. Kicked the Side of the barn in last that s How we met Bart and Milly who fulfilled my wish for a horse to plow the Fields. Bart and Milly came that sunday towing an old fashioned hand plow. Charles guided Milly in the Fields while Bart Clung to the plow. Everything went Fine until they went to dig up part of the old pasture. Going East Milly slowed willingly but going West she bounded for the Road. She threw her head High and handsome with Charles hanging on her neck like a Pendant and Bart bouncing up and Down behind the plow like a basketball. A hold her Charles a yelled Bart Between bumps a she s a rearing to and go she did. She took off like a rocket until the plow tangled in hardtack and caught under a Rock. Controlling Milly was harder than digging the Garden. Milly was a very contrary horse. While trying to get away from blowing our land she developed a liking for it. That summer i met her often strolling around in our Back Yard Whin Nying with Delight when she saw me while i dashed for the cellar. But Butch our Irish setter who had paid no attention to her when she dragged two men and a plow around chased her in the Woods from where she emerged further Down the Road to wait for Bart to pick her up. Since then my wish for a horse to till the Fields has switched to machinery but so far we Haven to met. Our planting operation is still muscle powered.

Bennington Road Bennington Utah mothers Day by Jean Wassick mothers Day would slip right by of it weren to for the concerted Effort of the publicity men. In be already had a Bunch of the first dandelion blossoms with three violets thrown in and what More could a Mother ask it is a sort of a Public secret a around Chez Wassick that the children Are planning to take Mommy fishing As a special treat for mothers Day. I daresay it has become Krown through these pages Over the years that i am something less than an avid sportswoman. My idea of Active participation is to sit in a Lawn chair under a tree. Occasionally to flex my Muscles i will get up and move the chair either into or out of the Sun depending on my mood. However this fact has so far escaped the notice of the children since they rarely read my column and they Are too Young to take any interest in looking around for an example of the flabby american. Chi not that they a have to look far in a around most of the time. The last time i tried to do a sit up i Only made it As far As seeing my toes not touching them a seeing them. In be never been on a pair of skis i swim a Little in a afraid of horses up close i a chop Wood with a baseball Bat and i can to throw a snowball three feet. You be already heard about my adventure on ice skates i believe. And the one who knows has on occasion pointed out that Lam one of the world s most unskilled Badminton players. He also says that about my checkers game so you can see that i am singularly untalented in All areas. As a matter of fact in one of the recent issues of a popular woman a Magazine there was a set of exercises designed to fir in up Milady a flabby Muscles. Actually in be never seen and evidence that i even have Muscles but you just have to take some things on Faith. A of Well anyway i gave the whole thing up when i discovered i do any of the darned things. I remember one mothers Day when the children decided i should have fun on my Day and they let me dig up a plot of ground and Plant some pumpkin seeds. Certainly fishing can to be any More strenuous than that. In a Way in a rather looking Forward to it. I done to think i will mind waiting while someone untangle my line from a trip Branch. 9999ww if i should fall in so what i doubt that ill melt. If a Hook should find a Way to the seat of my pants ill try Grin and Bear it. Pc a i wont even complain of i done to get a bite. In a not expecting any i done to think in a going to look right to the fish a cause i done to have any old disreputable fishing hat with Hooks and feathers and stuff sticking out of it ill pack a lunch for us of they like. Ill even go so far As to provide a can for the Worms. There a the catch. The Worms. I just know i wont be Able to reach in pull out a fat worm and impale it on a Hook. As a matter of fact i Don t even want to try. It sounds so a so a icky i think is the word. So i m working up a Little Deal one Apple pie in Exchange for himself sneaking Worms onto my Hook tomorrow.
