Title The Cow Bell
Description mysterious sound revealed itself It was Uncle Dave, Aunt Geneva. and three of my cousins coming to visit us at our home They had traveled from Orangevilie to Manti in a sheep wagon drawn by one horse and a milk cow whose bell signaled their arrival. I ran into the house to get the rest of the family, and we all waited anxiously out front as they completed their journey It was a real treat to have my cousins visit. You see, I had only five cousins and didn't see any of them regularly So, when Jay, Mildred, and Cecelia arrived, we were ready for some good old family fun Two aunts taking a ride in the early '90s -Courtesy Vonda Merriam Unusual Team mates - Horse and Cow pulling Covered wagon - Courtesy Vonda Merriam Not long after they arrived my cousins and I rushed off to participate in one of our favorite pastimes. The Old Lake Ditch, formed from the lake in Palisades, was not far from our home. We quickly threw on some old clothes, which in those days acted as swimming suits, and jumped in the ditch. Over the next few days of my cousins' short visit, we spent many hours of fun at the Old Ditch. In the evenings we would gather around the piano and enjoy Uncle Dave's grand singing voice, as well as the beautiful singing of the rest of the family They had a wonderful gift for singing, and we enjoyed having them share their talents with us. We had a great visit with them until it was time for them to make the trip back to Orangevilie. 9
