Papa's Apple Tree
By Beth Beutler
  

1     Oh, how I love Papa's apple tree. I remember the day that Papa planted the tree. He and grandma live next door, and I was having milk and cookies with him after school.
 
2     "A plump, juicy apple would taste great right about now," Papa said.
 
3     "Too bad you don't have an apple tree in the backyard, Papa!" I answered.
 
4     "That's a great idea, Sammy. Why don't we plant one?"
 
5     I had only been kidding but was excited about the idea.
 
6     We got into Papa's car. It was a large, great boat of a car that he had owned for many years. (I often wondered why he didn't get a new car, but he said, "Why? It's paid for, and it runs fine!") We headed over to Matilda's Flower Pot, the store where Papa always got his plants.
 
7     "Hey, Matilda. What's growing?"
 
8     Matilda smiled. I think she liked my papa. "Lots of things!" she said. "What did you have in mind?"
 
9     "I'm looking for some apple tree saplings," Papa continued.
