Far Fetched Fables No 1 Jedediah Berry and Fritz Swanson

First Story:  “To Measure the Earth” by Jedediah Berry


Spring 1890


Roel got out of bed before the fireflies had quit their nighttime signaling. He took his hat from the bedpost, strapped on his wooden right leg, and went downstairs to stoke the fire. Netta had never been able to sleep through the thudding of her husband’s leg on the steps, and the steps creaked, each one. She threw the covers aside and went to the kitchen to make their breakfast of blood sausage and buckwheat cake.
