Title Gypsies
Description I was alive. Doris told me, "Mother and I both cried last night when we thought you had drowned, and everybody's flowers were ruined and there would not be any to put on your grave." I was surprised to see all the cows in the lot instead of at the pasture. Soon the boys and I were playing Danish ball in the road. I was told that I could be "steady batter," and Rome could be "steady pitcher" because he was the last with me. While we were playing ball, Dad came and told me, "You take Lyd and I'll take Nelly, and we'll go out and see what happened to Lanky." I protested that Lyd was out in the pasture, but he told me that she came home. John Stott probably let her out, knowing she would come home. Out in the pasture the high ground was now covered with dry mud which sent up a cloud of dust as we rode through it. Before the cattle could eat the grass a good rain was needed to wash away the dirt. The pools and creeks were "roily," but were clearing pretty well. We found Lanky still on the knoll, and her calf was frisking about. We put the calf on Nelly, and I drove Lanky, although she followed very well just to be near her calf. The larks were singing, the sky was bright. It seemed to be a whole new world. Dad remarked, "Last night seemed like Doom's Day: today it is Resurrection."

Sunday-go-to-meeting clothes were saved for that day, set apart for prayers and thanksgiving and rest from all weekly labors. The Saints called it the Lord's Day. -84-
