Limestone Manor

A list of chores posted
For all to see
With instructions
and time frames
Mother and father
both wished these
Labors done by evening
Sister was to make the
Bread, peel the potatos
Brother was to get the
meat and thaw it to be
The laundry to be done
By noon so that both
Brother and sister could
Meet Mr. Gulstem who
was buying my father's
Cited hams, which were
in the cellar.
Well both brother and
sister chores away to
Complete there goals tasks.
They loved selling hams to
Mr. Gulstem would bring
candies , confections and
sodas as a reward for us
bringing twenty hams up
from the cellar to his truck.
Brother wished to impress
people so at 11:35 he began
bringing the hams up from
the cellar.He bought three at
a time so he could finish and
could be resting before loading
the hams. He told his sister
about how he was so looking
forward to the confections and
and sodas. He said " there are
several factors which guide good
decision making, and those confections attribute to my willing to please!"
Well at noon a dusty ole truck
came up the driveway. The door
Opened, out stepped Mr. Gulstem.
where's your Paw?  Brother anwsered
I am in charge of the Gulstem ham sale. Here they are. Well load up
while I pay your sister. Smiling sister
went in the house, to get the receipt book. While brother loaded up the hams , sister collected the money.
After the sale, the brother asked, do
You have those candies, confections and sodas?  No anwsered Mr. Gulstem
for your Paw charges for ham, he's lucky enough to get a smile outta me. He turned away and got in the truck.  Disappoint brother and sister, frowned and went towards the house. Then, Mr. Gulstem honked the horn, and said
" come get this stuff you know I bring it every year!"
Everyone was happy and all the chores were done.
