Then I yelled “Let’s just go up to where we started out at.” Will screamed “Let’s go up to the bridge and see what it’s like.” So I went back up to camp where we started out at and Will went to check out the bridge to see what it was like. He would be back in an hour so I went and fished for an hour. Since it was raining I caught a couple of big fish in the river. When he got back we both fished for another hour and we were gonna call it a day. Every time we caught a fish it smelt really bad because the fish sometimes just flat out had a disgusting smell.
In the Emissary and the Lake both of the characters in it lost a loved one but, they did come back, their soul was alive. Bradbury expressed this by his creepy twist of dead coming back to life as company, or a dead body. If you thing about it. why did Tally show up on the day Harold came back, why not some other day, like there was enough days in 20 years. This was because she loved him and was waiting for him to come back, she wanted to be near him, to meet him again.
Many people dislike the idea of change, because consistency is comforting. However, as time passes, things inevitably transform, as shown by E. B. White’s Once More to the Lake. He writes this essay in order to pass on the idea that one must accept the inevitable changes around oneself in order to grow up. White writes about him and his son visiting a lake that White used to visit when he was a child. There he found somethings so unaltered from how he recalled that he began to fantasize that nothing had changes and that he was his father, but also his son, resulting in an identity crisis.

Ever since his teen years, he and his family have been enjoying Pine Point, Maine because for them “Maine is sweet relief.” One summer he met Mark there, and they continued to be friends for life, and they continued returning to Maine every summer. We can notice as White does, Lindberg reflects on his memories when he and his friend Mark used to vacation in Pine Point and the first time he brought his family, who were not familiar with the north of Boston. He sees how things have changed even though not very much. For that reason he wants to lose his daily home routine. He could not wait to go on vacation and escape to Pine Point to lose himself from the weather that he did not like, which was “drizzly Aprils and slate-gray Decembers.” And finally, in Pine Point he found out that he has a place where he feels comfortable and no matter how many times he was there, he always can rely on Maine to help him lose and find himself
It is effective because the reader will get creeped out of what the windigo does to the child. For instance, “Mother scolded the food warm and smooth in the pot and called you to eat. But I spoke in the cold trees: New one, I have come for you, child hide and lie still.” (114) This proves the Windigo is a very creepy creature is silent and goes for little children. On the contrary, “I stole you off, a huge thing in my bristling armor.

His mother demonstrated she could only influence her son’s attitude; she could not change the laws. “I Shall always be happy that my mother taught me that the journey to understanding and tolerance was more important than the journey to Checotah.” (Franklin 712).
Plus we went through plenty of menders when we were training Riley so do not feel bad,” explained CharlieS. On my second time humping hose I was more worried about the fact that I was close to a house out in the country and it had the possibility to break and make a bigger mess than it already is making with just the drag bars. After I successfully humped that length of hose for CharlieW also known as W I went over and hooked up a new hose for CharlieS. It was supposed to be nice and easy since we do not have to pinch the hoses to put a new one on. We solved this problem when we made the Y pump.
