It is only necessary to make sure that gate and gate-post are perfectly aligned, thus enabling the gadget to be easily removed and replaced. The gate leading to the barnyard is, I confess, a bit more complicated, being held by an old leather cow halter. I've seen some strong men weep bitter tears of frustration as they attempt to determine which buckle leads to freedom. A little on the tricky side as well is the portal through which one passes from the back yard to the front, or vice versa• This short length of fencing is formed of six-foot cedar garden stakes, driven into the ground to a depth of perhaps five inches and nailed to a two-foot tall frame. There are eight of these so-called pickets left un-nailed and to make the crossing one must uproot the required number of stakes, leap over or crawl through the 24-inch-high supporting structure, and re-plant the stakes. This, for me, is a comparatively simple procedure as I can slip through sideways (holding my breath) with the removal of only two pickets. On the rare occasions that 1 have thus bruised my anatomical protuberances, I am reminded to forego the fatted calf for a few weeks.

For the past ten years Mrs. Hartman and her husband David have lived in Shelton. They have three children, eight-year-old Greg and Trudi and Jeff, twins, who are 1 I years of age. Throughout this time Judi Hartman has studied off-and-on, majoring in art.
