    the quilts smell heavenly.

           The deer was drawn to the quilts.  He loved to watch their
    shapes sway on the clothesline.  He was fascinated with how
    the bright colors danced in the wind.  He sniffed the quilts to
    take in their divine scent.  He felt their soft textures by rubbing

    him in the hammock where there was a nice breeze.  The
    man then told the boy a story that his father told him.  It did not
    take long for the boy to drift off to sleep.


           The dog would already be asleep under the hammock.  
    He liked to lie on his back with his feet up in the air, snoring
