Title She Didn't Pull the Wool Over His Eyes
Description working, she put the house up for sale, and soon moved into a comfortable two-story home, previously owned by Joseph Christensen. The family was truly happy there; Mother loved the new home, Orion had a room all of his own, and no one ever complained of ghosts again! SHE DIDN' T PULL THE WOOL OVER HIS EYES Dorothy Buchanan 267 East 300 North Richfield, Utah SECOND PLACE ANECDOTE My grandfather was a sheep man in Mt. Pleasant during my growing-up years. Many men in that area raised and c aired for sheep, of herds to the east mountains in the summer, then winter months. My mother had spent a great deal of time with her father in the mountains, and had ridden with him over his sheep range many times. She knew how much his sheep meant to him. As she was a fine artist, she decided one year to paint a picture of a herd of sheep for her father' s Christmas gift. She found a copy of a sheep herd in an English art book which she used as a pattern for her painting. She and had it attractively framed. On Christmas morning while we were opening our gifts, my Mother took the painting from under the trees and proudly handed it to Grandpa. She was smiling in pleased unwrapping the painting, grandpa's expression visibly changed. For a few seconds he uttered no sound. A loud silence prevailed. Finally, he looked at my Mother and said in a dejected tone: "My girl, you' ve gone and painted those dad-burned Cotswolds. " QR
