My Sun Going Down

In Fleshed Out Tweets on April 27, 2012 at 10:56 am

Reading this morning- Sun Going Down by Jack Todd.
Cora Paint gives birth to twin sons while her husband is off cutting wood.
And I get to remembering Tom K, who had a rough patch in SE Asia. As he legs healed he decided on mules as a way to get around.
He and his wife were living in the Gunnison forest.
He returned, in a blizzard, from elk hunting to find her in a difficult labor.
Sensibly, he removed the hood from a truck and sleighed her over the snow to a road.
He flagged someone down.
Got her to the hospital.
Saw his son born.
And called a friend to go deal with the mules.
The hood never did close quite right ever after it was rehung.
Pip was rambunctious enough to be in prison today.
I can’t remember her name- Tom did beat her.
I write this in a suit on the LIRR.
Equally I wonder how I ever knew people like them and that I don’t anymore.
Oh but I love reading- remember it was all about states rights. Been reading on and off for 50 yrs about the Civil War and last night is the 1st I heard of this.
