When Sally arrived, she put everything she owned on a cart and walked briskly through the door. Two men tried unsuccessfully to take her belongings. Sally fended them off and moved onward. Inside, she stood in line for what seemed like forever. When Sally reached the front of the line a woman took her belongings, handed her some papers, and sent her on her way. Sally waited in another line for quite some time before two men made her remove her shoes, coat, and belt. One man searched her carefully with the backs of his hands to insure that she had nothing hiding under her clothing. Sally was tying her shoes when she heard something that made her run as fast as she could before handing over her papers and finally finding her seat.
The boat that we just built is just fine.
Don’t try to tell us its not.
The top and the sides are divine.
It’s the bottom I guess we forgot.
Yesterday my friends and I built a boat. We searched through my grandpa’s barn to find all of the supplies we needed. We found the old metal frame from a boat he had many years ago. We found balsam wood that we could bend and shape around the frame. We worked all afternoon making that boat. Carefully filling every nail hole with caulk. When the caulk was dry this morning we decided to go for a row. As soon as we put the boat in the water, it sank to the bottom of the pond. We were so embarrassed when we realized that we forgot to seal the nail holes on the bottom with caulk!
Examine the lumber pile carefully and select four boards nearly alike. Do not allow the dealer or his men to talk you into taking lumber with blemishes. Measure the wood and see that it is over twenty-two feet long by one foot four or five inches wide and one inch thick. Trim two of the side-pieces until they are exact duplicates. The stern-piece should be made from a triangular piece of oak, and it is wise to make it a few inches longer than will be necessary, so that there may be no danger of finding, after all your labor, that the stick is too short; much better too long, for it is a simple matter to saw it off. Make a second stem-piece of oak about one inch thick and the same length as the first, and two or three inches wide, or twice as wide as the thick-a of the side boards.
