It’s hard to get through a day during the great depression. Everyday, my family worries about my father's job. Now there's one more thing to add to the pile of worries. The dust bowl.
The Beginning….It was an early chilly morning in November of 2009. My dad, his friends, another kid, and me all loaded up in one truck ready to head east. I was only seven years old. We were going to Missouri to hunt whitetail. This was going to be the farthest away from home I have ever been. I was excited to go hunt in a different state with different types of animals. We left from Beaver, Utah early that morning ready for the long drive through three states. The first was Colorado, and then onto Kansas. We left on a mission just like in the start of the Odyssey where they left to go fight Troy. The kid that came with us was a couple years older than me. On the way there he started to throw a fit. He was home sick and crying a lot. I just wanted to plug my ears with something so I wouldn 't have to hear it. This is how it must 've felt when Odysseus plugged his men 's ears with beeswax so the wouldn 't hear the sirens.
It was a sunny day, the sun is high up in the sky and I woke up with a smile on my face, I remembered that we are going on a trip to San Diego. My mom woke up early in the morning to make breakfast for the family. The breakfast for that morning was an egg with sausages and bacon, those foods were my favorite breakfast foods.
It seemed almost surreal when I first read the essay, in fact it wasn’t until the second or perhaps third time that I really believed it. I also grew up with a cabin by the lake in Maine only about 181.2 miles north of where E.B. White spent his summers and it belonged to my Aunt Jeannette. To say this story seems like something that I experienced is weird, because too much similarity exists between Mr. whites story and mine.
At the end Rainsford kills Zaroff when he is asleep. Then Rainsford keeps the house then his old shipmates ship crashes on the island. They are petrified because of the rumors. Rainsford sees them and they are pleased to see him and Rainsford invites them in for tea and bread. After they eat and finish their tea they go out to go hunting to add to their collection. It was close to dawn when they finished hunting. They went back to the lodge to clean off for dinner and bed. For dinner they had cream of mushroom soup. After dinner they went to bed. They loved the beds they said it was like laying on a nice fluffy cloud. At seven a.m they woke up and had left over soup. It hit eight oclock when they gotten finished eating and washing their clothes.
What is the most important thing you have ever had to prepare for, and how did you prepare for it?

I was dying of excitement, I think that the meeting was about stopping segregation in California. Mom was driving up the driveway, I saw the excitement in her eyes as she would get off the car. We all rushed inside and sat on the table and then mother spoke "I have really good news today we were told that our black kid and friends will be able to go to a white school '. We were so happy and full of joy so we all decide to go to the park and drink some fruit punch, listen to some music, and play a friendly game soccer. That evening we were all tired, so we sat down a listen to some music. As soon as we were going to start our second half the music stops and there was a state alert. We gathered together and listen quietly ' 'Hello state of California it is your

It was an early Saturday morning, when just Dad, Grandma, and I were awake. Dad and I were trying to figure out where to go on the four wheeler. There was little puddles everywhere. The yard still had really cold, wet, dew on the ground. The sun was coming up so bright we didn’t need any lights. Somewhere in the front yard a snorting deer came from nowhere. I could see it through the big front window. A big squirrel responded to the deer, and then a second squirrel joined. They sang out deer and squirrel for a short time. And when their voices faded away, it was as quiet as the woods.
My father said that we were going to my grandfather 's cabin in the woods of Colorado near Arrowhead Creek. Our grandpa said not to go out at night. We didn 't know how good of shape the cabin was because it hadn 't been used for fifty years, in fact we don 't know if even exist. Though we were going hunting and fishing. It been a couple hours since we got into the boat, we finally got there. We got the cabin. Old made out of wood with moss on the out side trees around it with a concrete base.
Suddenly, we heard a noise coming from the bottom of dad’s car. My family and I had just gotten back from a road trip. “What is that”? I wondered. My dad walked over to the car and peered under. A few moments later, he stood back up and said, “nothing”. I figured it could just be something in the trunk. Then, we saw something drop from the bottom of the car, and we all looked underneath to see what it was. It was a kitten! A tiny black and white kitten just came from our car! I looked like it was cold, and needed some shelter. The cat looked tired and hungry. Of course, we couldn’t let the cat wonder around in the streets by itself, so we decided to take her in and care for her until we found her owner.
When it was my 7th birthday my mom and dad decided to get me a dog. I was so excited but the day we had to get her I became sick. Second, we had to drive 10 hours to get her. That stunk because we had to keep stopping to take the medicine the doctor gave my mom. Also, I threw up so we had to stop at a resting stop to change my close. We also had to wait and hour until I felt better. In addition to, when we finally got their and I saw her and I instantly fell in love with her. She was so small and she could fit in my palm when I was 7. Also, we started to drive home and my dog started to do something funny, when my dad rolled down the window, my dog started to try to eat the air. It was so funny we were lucky to get it on video,we laughed
Losing someone you love dearly is one of the hardest things anyone can go through. Sometimes it hurts so bad that you may yourself, “What’s the point of being here anymore?” I ask myself that question all the time, ever since my Grandmother passed away.
