Title Captain Dies
Description We had a good laugh when we called unexpectedly on our Primary teacher and she, a grown woman, had a few front locks carefully rolled in kid-curlers. We wondered if really she didn't know she was a lady. Soures: Nellie Bjerregaard Gribble--personal recollections. CAPTAIN DIES Vic Frandsen Springville, Utah Senior Division Honorable Mention Anecdote When I was a boy, our Frandsen family owned the whole block on which we lived in Moroni. The Big Ditch ran through the upper part of our lot. Our chickens, including a red rooster, ran loose on the lot. We had the nicest stallion in town. From his stable a corridor ran to the ditch so he could drink as he wished. My Aunt Clara was staying at our house because she had "blood poisoning" and her husband was working in Montana. One morning as Aunt Clara came into breakfast she announced, "I just had a most vivid dream. I dreamed I was up by the Big Ditch and John Sillitoe (he lived on the block above the ditch) came and I said to him. "There is Frandsen's red rooster dead in the ditch." He replied, "Red rooster nothing! It is his stallion." So I looked and it was Cap-tain, the stallion, on his back in the ditch-dead! Just then Dad answered a knock at the door. John Sillitoe was there. He said, "I hate to tell you this, but your big stallion is up there dead in the ditch." -91-
