Title The Technical Touch - In Her Feeble Remembering
Description The Technical Touch Ruth D. Scow Non Professional Second Place Anecdote Long years ago we owned a cow that kept our family in cream, milk, and butter. My husband milked her night and morning, and we accepted this added chore and enjoyed partaking of the cow's milk products. Then one summer day we thought to take our three small boys to the mountains to camp overnight We had a good strong farm wagon and a team of dependable horses. I could manage the food needed, and my husband would engineer the equipment. Then came the question, "What about the cow?" We would need someone to milk her at night and in the morning. We would ask our neighbor boy who had just graduated from Manti High and was working at Bentley's Motor Company to help us. My husband stopped the boy as he came from work that day and asked him to help us by milking the cow. The boy looked at his hands and replied, "No, I cannot do that If I did I would lose my technical touch." In Her Feeble Remembering Non Professional First Place Poetry From her bedside she told a childhood story over and over to anyone who paused to listen. Her family had been driven from their home. They fled in terror before Pancho Villa. In drenching rain and fear of darkness all huddled together they waited. waited for the northbound train to take them safely across the border. 35
