Jade Sitting in a Horse Stall  

"Don't move a muscle,"  I said as I saw Gerry's daughter Jade sitting there. "Don't move a muscle," I repeated, "I'll get my camera." If you say that to people they invariably move, but a minute later when I returned with my camera Jade had not moved an inch. Jade was resting after helping her father Gerry replace floors in our stable.

I asked her what she was going to do in the winter when most construction work dries up..

"My fiancé and I are going to buy a truck and haul people out of ditches."
