I forgot to mention, Mama and Ben got all of us really good on an April fool. Mama called Ben from the downstairs phone and he answered. He made out that our neighbor Keenan was on the phone. After he hung up he went yelling through the house "Angie had a calf! Keenan just called and Angie had a calf!"
"What was it?"
"A heifer. A black heifer." We all left it at that. A few minutes later Ben came out and told us we'd all been fooled. What an ornery boy.
