|A blue ribbon for Aphrodite
|I felt I ought to do something to make up to her for having come into her home out of the arms of
Michael Angelo Sanzio Raphael
instead of calling on her in the proper way. I decided a good way to make it up to her would be to pull down the
in that place where the
is weak, and take her for a walk. I went to the
. I got a piece of clothesline rope. While I was making a
for the mother pig, I took my Sunday-best hair ribbon, the blue ribbon the
gave to me. I made a bow on that halter. I put the bow just over her ears. That gave her the proper look. When the
saw us go walking by, she took the bow from off the pig. She put that bow in the trunk; me she put under the bed.
