The Pioneer

Hi I am Logan.  I live in the woods.  It is the year 1850.  I want to tell you about the time I ran out of food.  I was young then.  I liked being young.  One day i wanted food.  I went outside.  There were  no animals.  I walked and walked.  Nothing.  I went back in my log cabin.  I looked in the cellar and there was a whole deer.  I liked deer. You know I at the deer.  I remember that it tasted great.  Back then it wasn't polluted.  I could get sleep. There were no cars and trucks.  I miss those old days.  But I am not young anymore.  I am 64!

Hi my name is Connor, I live in a log cabin on the prairies.  I like getting the maple syrup with Pa.  When the syrup dripped into the bucket, Pa and I take the syrup to the boiling kettle and it boils for about 10 days.  When it is finished we can make maple sugar.  It is sort of like maple syrup like the kind that you and me have now.  

Ma said, "it is bed time.  I will see you in the morning.  Remember the coyotes can not get into our house." 

 "But ma what about bears?" I said.  

"Don't worry if a bear does come Pa would scare it away with his gun," Ma said.  

"What would Pa do to the bear?" I asked.  

"He would either shoot at the sky or shoot the bear but I doubt he would shoot the bear because you know how much pa likes wildlife, don't you?"   

"Yes i do ma."  I said.  

"Now go to sleep Connor," ma said. 

 "Zzzzzzzzz."  I said as I slept.  

Suddenly I heard Pa get up and grab his gun. 

 I got up and said, "pa what are you doing?" 

"I am getting my gun because I heard something like a bear," said Pa. 

 "Are you going to  shoot it or the sky?" I said. 

"I am going to shoot the sky," pa said.  

Suddenly the bear scratched a hole in the house. 

 "I'd better scare that bear away," said pa.  

I covered my ears for the sound of the gun shot.  I heard a faint boom!  Pa came in and everybody was standing perfectly still and was staring at him.  

Pa said, "did you get everybody up?"

  "No I did not pa," I said.  

"We got up by the sound of the gunshot," Said Ma. 

 "well can we all get back to sleep now," Pa said.  

So everybody including pa went to sleep.
