    Mary Gobble Pay This paper is about my ancestor, Mary Gobble Pay. I don’t know much about her, but I do know at least part of the story of her crossing the plains. I also know a little about her trip to America across the sea. She had to push through some pretty rough stuff! I am not going to give much away, but I will tell you a few things, then explain later. (So, sorry if you don’t understand something yet.) She had frost bite, she lost her sister, brother, and mother. She also had to cut off

    On June 27th, 2015, my entire life flashed before my eyes. I never could have anticipated what that particular day had in store for me and my best friend, Virginia. It was the day after my birthday and I felt the excitement built up in my chest as we drove to Charleston, South Carolina to celebrate on the beach. It was our last summer together before we both headed off to college and all I hoped for were a few last joyful moments spent soaking up the sun before we had to part ways. I thought the

    Vacations with my dad began like ritual; the ceremonial collecting of every brochure and pamphlet in sight and the eventual sacrifice of our down time by meticulous scheduling that filled every second of our trip with some or the other activity. Our trip to Cape Town, South Africa was no different. Seconds struggled by as I found myself, once again, waiting for my parents to finish talking to the tourist relations agent in our hotel. They had laid out every single brochure on the counter, and

    Ralph Floogie lived in a small, cerulean house atop feathergrass hill. The folks of Bluchek referred to it as such because every square inch of the hill was completely overtaken by tall, wispy feathergrass. That is, every square inch besides where the house stood, which wasn’t all that many square inches to begin with. The house was of average size, but, unlike most houses in the town, Ralph’s house was tall and thin, with at least 4 stories making it up. Of course no one really knew how many stories

    Wiping the sleepies out of my eyes, I quickly glanced at my alarm clock – 5 am. “Good, I’ve got plenty of time,” I thought to myself. As quietly as possible, which never works when I am trying to, I quickly grabbed a bowl of cereal for breakfast. Checking my list and grabbing my gear I headed out to wait for a taxi in the cool fading morning. I could taste the excitement, or was that the humidity? That day began like all the other missionary kid tubing trips down the Davao River in the Philippines

    Northern bobwhite quail adults are on average around 6 inches tall and weigh around 6 ounces (1, 16). This relatively large body size is accompanied by elliptical wings which limits flight. Flight in these birds is usually referred to as a “flush”. This is a short, fast burst of flight relatively low to the ground as a final effort to avoid predation (14). The main form of locomotion for these quail is walking or running. These quail are non-migratory and typically have a limited home range (3.4
