Tall Tales <ul><li>My grand-dad lived on a farm in the country. One cold winter day, Grand-dad went out walking. Suddenly, he saw some wild geese with big troubles. It was so cold that ice had formed on the geese’s wings, and they couldn’t fly. Grand-dad got a wonderful idea. He began to chase the birds. Squawking and hurrying, the frightened geese started to run down a nearby hill. The ice on their wings was so heavy that they all fell down. They turned over and over as they fell down the hill. By the time they reached the bottom, they all looked like giant snowballs with wild-goose centers. Grand-dad stacked up these snowballs next to his house. Then, whenever he wanted a roast goose that winter, all he had to do was go out and split open a snowball. </li></ul>
