Example text

I can舗t imagine what the nurses thought a lawyer and a veterinarian would have in common, but they wheeled him on over to sit opposite me that first night, and here he舗s been ever since. He glares at me, his jaw moving back and forth like a cow chewing cud. Incredible. He舗s actually eating the stuff. The old ladies chatter like schoolgirls, blissfully unaware. 舠They舗re here until Sunday,舡 says Doris. 舡 舠Yes, two shows on Saturday and one on Sunday. Randall and his girls are taking me tomorrow,舡 says Norma.

I jerk upright on my elbow. Four men are sitting on rough burlap feed sacks, playing cards by the light of a kerosene lantern. One of them, a shrunken old man with stubble and a hollow face, has an earthenware jug tipped up to his lips. In his surprise, he seems to have forgotten to put it back down. He does so now and wipes his mouth with the back of his sleeve. 舠Well, well, well,舡 he says slowly. 舡 Two of the men sit perfectly still, staring at me over the top of fanned cards. The fourth climbs to his feet and steps forward.

My word, they舗re pretty. We had horses when I was a girl. 舡 She looks into the distance, and for a split second I can see how lovely she was as a young woman. 舡 says Hazel. 舠The posters would appear a few days ahead舒they舗d cover every surface in town! 舡 舠Golly, yes. I certainly do,舡 Norma says. 舠They put posters on the side of our barn one year. 舡 She chuckles, shaking her head. 舡 舠And then a few days later the train would pull in. 舡 舠My father used to take us down to the tracks to watch them unload.
