When I was young , I went looking for gold in califonige. I never found enough to make me rich, but I did discover a beautiful part of the country. It’s called the standing slaw. The standing sl was like heaven on earth. It had bright green hills , and deep forest where soft winds touch the trees. 

Other men also looking for gold had reach the standing slaw of Californian many years before I did. They had build the town in the vilely with side walks and stones barns and schools. They had also built pretty little houses for their families. At first they found a much of gold in standing slaw hills, but their good luck did not last. After a few years , the gold disappeared. By the time I reach the standing sl , all the people were gone too. Grass now grew in the streets , and the little houses were covered by wild roed  bushes. Only the sound in air fill the ear as I walk through the empty town that summer day so long ago .

Then I realized that I was not along after all. A man was smiling at me as he stood in front of one of the little houses. This house was not covered by wile rude bushes. And nice little garden in front of the house was full of blue and yellow flowers.    Cartons   Hang from the window and flowed in the summer soft wind.

Still smiling ,the man opend the door after his house and motions to me . I went inside and could not believe my eyes. I had been living for weeks in   candy  with gold miners . we slept in the stone ground ,eat   c  form cold miner place and spend our days busy in difficult search for gold. Here is a little house , my spirit seems to come to live again. I saw a bright   in the wooden floor. Pictures hang all around the room , and a little table there was seashells books and china vises  , full of flowers . a women had made this house into a home.

The pleasure I felt in my heart must be showed on my face. The men read my thoughts ,”yes ,” he smiled ,”it’s all her work. Every thing in this room had filled the touch of her hands.”
