Title The Decision
Description was adamant: "Well, he will, because she is going to use that arm!" Then Candace proceeded to make her prediction come true. Sending the boys to the yard, she had them dig angleworms. These she put in a can and set it close to the stove where they could ferment and become a sort of oil.
