Day two of laboring landed me back beside Shirley from yesterday's post. She had traded the rake for a shovel and immediately jumped right back into telling me stories after asking about her laboring neighbor. This time she shared with me about her own experiences with giving birth. Then she proceeded to tell me that she would much rather be outside than inside no matter the weather; so much so that she made herself a little set up in the carport. I asked if I could see it, which led into a lot of show and tell. After sharing a few more highs and lows of life she went back to scrapping up the dirt... and puffing on her pipe.
