The Nest

     This little girl from the rural area of Horntown, OK. went visiting in the big city of Holdenville.  While the parents visited, us children were sent outside to play. We played hide and seek.  After a few hiding places were used up, I discovered a place that was filled with these small things, that looked, to me,  like a cows nest.  Now into the house we ran, to tell the grownups what we had found. "Mama, Mama, we found a cows nest." "What??"  was the response.  "Come, we will show you."  We led them to the place hidden behind the house.  Laughter rang out.  So, my great discovery turned out to be a large pile of "Pet Milk" cans.
