He learned to walk that spring, and I would stand there at the fence and watch that durn little critter out there in the middle of the furrow, trying his best to keep up with Jackson, until Jackson would stop the plow at the turn row and go back and get him and set him straddle of his neck and take up the plow and go on.

The self-same html text (copied and pasted from here, in fact) works just fine on tumblr, but this blog's cgi adds mysterious characters to the url when saving it.

Anyway, the link is:

It's a very, very old version of Movable Type, and I should probably upgrade it. But I'm frankly afraid of what might be unleashed in the process. Some things are better left undisturbed and lived with.
