Bu toshlar - haqiqiy pizza uchun juda mos o'lchamli, dumaloq qo'lda yasalgan qizil loy

Shutterstock.com

Bular ikki kishilik tushlik uchun juda mos keladi yoki agar siz chindan ham och bo'lsangiz, shaxsiy pizza.

Kim pitsani Bangladeshdan yaxshiroq biladi? Balki Italiya, ular pishgan pomidor, tuzlangan go'sht va pishloqlar va siz tasavvur qila oladigan har qanday yangi sabzavotli samoviy melanj bilan to'ldirilgan qobiq qobig'ini mukammal qilib yaratganidan beri. Ammo Bangladeshda miloddan avvalgi yog'ochli pechlarda pishirilgan Yaqin Sharqdagi non kabi pizza ota -bobosi yashaydi.

Bu issiq tosh Bangladesh oshxonasini targ'ib qilib, dunyoning turli burchaklaridan Fair Fair hunarmandchiligining etakchi manbasi bo'lgan o'n ming qishloq, hozirda Terra Cotta pizza toshlarini sotmoqda. Bu toshlar - bu ikki kishilik tushlik uchun, yoki agar siz chindan ham och bo'lsangiz, shaxsiy pitssa uchun yasalgan dumaloq qo'lda yasalgan qizil loy.

Asrlar mobaynida bu toshni qimmatbaho qilib qo'ygan soddaligi mohiyatiga ko'ra, o'zingizning pizza tayyorlashda quyidagi oddiy qadamlarni bajaring.

  1. Pitsa toshini pechga qo'ying va iloji boricha yuqori haroratgacha qizdiring.
  2. Barmoqlaringizni kuydirmasligingiz uchun toshni olib tashlang (o'choqli qo'lqop bilan) yoki makkajo'xori seping va xamirni tosh bo'ylab yoying.
  3. Tovoqlaringizni yoyib, qobig'i ham, tepasi ham oltin jigarrang bo'lguncha pechda pishiring. Agar rang qora rangga yaqinlashsa, ishingiz tugadi.
  4. Qo'lingizda pechka qo'lqopi va spatula bo'lishi kerak.

Yerdan yasalgan issiqlik ko'taruvchi? Yong'inga chidamli beton?

Mening bir do'stimda shunday naycha bor

Taxminan uch fut baland va qalinligi 1 dyuym. Diametri taxminan 8-10 dyuym.

Bu issiqlik ko'targich uchun etarlicha katta bo'ladimi? U ' da juda ko'p o'tga chidamli g'isht va pishiriladigan taglik bor edi. Ularni menga berishga rozi.

Bir savol. G'ishtlar orasida yong'inga chidamli beton bilan raketa pechini qila olamanmi?

Xo'sh, ba'zilaringiz menga fikr bildira olarmidingiz?

Men ular pizza o'choqlarini birlashtiradigan narsalarni nazarda tutdim. Qachonki, men va#039ve ning pastki qismidan ko'rinib turibdiki, olovli loydan yasalgan.

Uzoq vaqt oldin, men 've men ishlayotgan pizza pechining pastki qismini qizil rangga burishga muvaffaq bo'ldim

Men bunday issiqlik ko'targichlar bilan bog'liq muammo shundaki, ko'tarilish maydonining isishi uchun ko'proq vaqt kerak bo'ladi. Agar siz kuygan tunnelni loy naychasidan yasasangiz, sizda ham xuddi shunday muammo bor.

Pechka quvurlari tizimida yong'in reaktsiyasi ingichka metallni isitadi- keyin izolyatsiya bilan aloqa qiladi va issiqlik kuyish trubkasida va issiqlik ko'targichda ushlanib qoladi.

Loy naychasida olov izolyatsiyaga tegmasdan oldin loy massasini qizdirishi kerak. Bu kuyishning bir necha daqiqaga unchalik samarali bo'lmasligiga olib kelishi mumkin. Bu aytilgan. Men navbatdagi raketa loyihamda foydalanish uchun gripp laynerlarini sotib oldim. Gripp layneri o'sha naycha bilan bir xil materialdan qilingan (menimcha). Gripp lineri deyarli abadiy bo'lishi kerak (agar men uni qandaydir tarzda sindirib tashlamasam).

Oxirgi rasmda men Erni va Erikaning#039s RMH -ni ko'rdim, ular yuk kamerasi uchun gripp layneridan foydalanishganini ko'raman. Men tizimning qancha qismi grippdan yasalganini eshitmaganman. Ularning saytida ba'zi ma'lumotlar bo'lishi mumkin.

Ba'zida javob eski ko'prikdan o'tib ketish emas, balki uni yoqish emas, balki yaxshiroq ko'prik qurishdir.

Qora Volkswagen Jetta avtomagistralda ikki soat behuda ketgandan so'ng, davlatlararo yo'l bo'ylab ketadigan, izolyatsiyalangan ikki yo'lli, 47-chi qishloq yo'li bo'ylab yurdi. Devin va Jenna Rojdestvo haftasini mamlakatda ijaraga olgan kabinada o'tkazish uchun Afinadan ketayotgan edilar. Devin g'azablangan quvonch bilan mashinani haydab chiqardi va Jenna qo'lida kitob bilan, qaqragan qarag'aylar kulrang muzlatilgan skeletlari kabi o'tib ketayotganini tomosha qildi.

"Bu magistraldan ko'ra yaxshiroq", dedi u.

Devin kulib yubordi. "Ha, men ochiq yo'lda oltmish qilyapman. Emuvchilar! ”

"Xavfsiz bo'ling. Men qayg'uli o'rmonli yo'lda qulab tushishni xohlamayman, u erda tepasi buzilgan oilalar bizning jasadlarimizni zo'rlashadi va yeyishadi. ”

"Siz qanday kitobni o'qiyapsiz?"

"Hamma narsa juda chiroyli bo'lganda o'qish qiyin."

Olma bog'iga aylangan qarag'aylar tiniq va muz bilan qoplangan manzara bo'ylab cho'zilgan. Quyosh nuri qor orqali yaltirab turuvchi ranglarning kaleydoskopida aks ettirilgan: ko'k, sariq, qizil, to'q sariq. Sovuq bilan qoplangan yog'ochdan yasalgan belgi Jennaning e'tiborini tortdi.

Ular tepalik tagida qabriston bo'lgan tashlandiq ibodatxonadan o'tdilar. Tasodifiy toshbo'ronlarning tepalari qabristonga to'lib, qor qoplami tepasiga qaragan. Shahar qadimiy yog'och bilan o'ralgan orol edi.

"Antiqa buyum haqida gapiring", dedi Devin. "Bu joy kehribar rangda joylashgan."

Jenna burnini derazasiga bosdi. U o'rmon tepasidagi uyni va uning atrofidagi uylarni ko'rdi.

Ular Main va Polk ko'chalari chorrahasida to'xtashdi.

"Biz kabinaga chiqishimiz kerak. Men omonatni yo'qotishni xohlamayman. "

"Bizda oltigacha bor, lekin hali bitta emas. Bu erga buriling. Men nimanidir ko'rmoqchiman. "

Devin xafa bo'ldi, lekin uning qiziqishini qondirish kerakligini bilar edi, aks holda safarning qolgan qismi achchiq jangga aylanadi. "Yaxshi, lekin bundan keyin biz yo'lni bosib o'tdik."

Jenna katta uyga qarab borgan sari hayajonlanib ketdi. "Men bunga ishonmayman", dedi u. "To'xtang, to'xtang, to'xtating."

Devin qarigan uyning oldida to'xtadi.

"Men bunga ishonmayman!"

Jenna kitobni tizzasidan ushlab qopqog'ini ochdi. Chang ko'ylagi ichki qatlamida muallifning tarjimai holi bor edi, lekin muallifning fotosurati o'rniga uyning surati joylashtirilgan.

"Mana shu!" dedi u. "Bu uy!

"Ibrohim Grabovski - to'liq zohid. U kitob imzolamaydi yoki hech narsa qilmaydi. U hech qachon ketmaydi. Hatto uning rasmlari ham yo'q. Uning noshiri uning qanday ko'rinishini ham bilmaydi ».

Jenna boshini chayqab, telefonini oldi. "Bu mening blogim uchun kerak."

U mashinadan qorga sakrab tushdi.

"Qayoqqa ketyapsan?"

"Bu, albatta, men bu erga kelishim kerak bo'lgan belgidir."

"Biz buni uyga ketayotganda qilishimiz mumkin!"

"Men tavakkal qilmayman. Bu umr bo'yi bir marta berilgan imkoniyatdir. ”

U uyi ortida video tasvirga oldi. U buni Snapchat -ga joylashtirmoqchi edi, lekin u hech qanday xizmatga ega emas edi. U baribir yozib oldi va uni kabinaga yuklashini o'yladi.

"Hey, dahshatli kitob qurtlari. Agar siz mening blogimga umuman e'tibor qaratgan bo'lsangiz, mening orqamdagi uyni tan olishingiz kerak. To'g'ri, mening kichkintoylarim - bu yagona Ibrohim Grabovskiyning uyi. Men uyda kimdir borligini ko'rmoqchiman. Umid qilamanki, menda yana bir qancha rasmlar bo'ladi. Sizning dahshatli Girly hisobingizdan chiqadi! ”

Devin mashinani o'chirib qo'ydi va maysazor bo'ylab yurdi. "Bu uy bo'lishi mumkin, lekin bu uning bu erda yashayotganini anglatmaydi. Jahannam, bu odam hatto yo'q bo'lishi mumkin. "

"Bu zarbaga arziydi. Atrofga qarang, uning kitoblaridagi hamma narsa shu erda. Bu u yozgan shahar. Bu erda uning barcha hikoyalari paydo bo'ladi. Bu epitsentr ».

Uyning eshigi ochilib, yosh ayol chiqib ketdi. - Kechirasiz, - dedi Vendi.

"Kechirasiz, agar u sizni bezovta qilsa", dedi Devin. "Biz ketamiz."

Biroq, Jenna zinapoyaga ko'tarildi.

"Bu shunday, shunday emasmi?" dedi u.

"Men nimani nazarda tutayotganingizni bilmayman."

"Ha, qilasiz. Buni aytma. Mana shu. Bu uy. Bu erda kim yashayotganini bilasiz. Siz kimsiz?"

"Siz bu erda bo'lmasligingiz kerak. Siz ketishingiz kerak edi. "

"Men ko'proq kelisha olmadim", dedi Devin. U Jennaning qo'lidan ushlab oldi.

"Ha, ha, ha. Bir daqiqada ketishimiz mumkin. Men haqligimni ayting. Men haqligimni bilaman. " Jenna ichkarida yopilayotgan eshik ovozini payqadi. U Vendining boshiga qaradi va zinapoya yonida turgan keksa ayolni ko'rdi.

“Bema'nilik. Rojdestvo paytida hech kim yo'q. Ularni ichkariga kiritinglar. "

Jenna ko'zlarini katta -katta ochib Devinga qaradi va uning yuziga jilmayib qo'ydi. Ketrin ularni foyeda kutib oldi. Yozuv mashinasi kalitlarining gipnoz ritmi taxta taxtasidan o'tib ketdi.

"Yordamchimiz uchun uzr so'rayman", dedi Ketrin. "Bizga shaxsiy hayotimiz yoqadi va Vendi yaxshi ish qiladi."

Jenna gapira olmadi. Uning his -tuyg'ulari uy tafsilotlariga botgan edi. "Bu shunday", deb pichirladi u. "Hammasi shu erda. Har bir kitobdan hamma narsa! ”

"Men sizning muxlisligingizni ko'ryapman", dedi Ketrin.

"Bundan ham ko'proq", dedi u. "Men kitoblarga sharhlar yozaman va janob Grabovskiyning kitoblari mening sevimli mavzularimdan biridir."

"Demak, bu u o'ylagan joymi?" - so'radi Devin.

Ketrin Vendidan choy damlab berishni so'radi va e'tiborini mehmonlariga qaytardi.

"Biz kabinetga o'tirishimiz mumkin. Men kompaniyadan zavqlanaman. ”

Kitob javonlari devorlarga o'ralgan, qo'li qo'lyozma va yog'och qutilar bilan to'ldirilgan edi. Devin va Jenna sevgi o'rindig'ini bo'lishdi, Ketrin kresloga o'tirdi.

"Siz Ibrohimga kitoblariga yordam berasizmi?" - so'radi Jenna.

"Siz eshitganingizdek, Ibrohim yozuvchi."

Ular kirganidan buyon yozuv mashinkasi to'xtamadi. Ketrin suyaklarini ushlab, qo'llarini quritdi.

"Va bu qo'llar o'lim sahnalarini yaratadi", deb tushuntirdi u.

Vendi o'qishga choy xizmati bilan qaytdi.

"Vendi, azizim. Mehmonlarimizga ko'rsatish uchun ko'rgazmalardan birini olib keling ”.

U qutilaridan birini Ketringa olib keldi. U murakkab dioramani ochish uchun qopqog'ini ochdi.

"Voy, Xudoyim", dedi Jenna. "Bu Marlon Kechasi yig'lash. Bu ajoyib. ”

"U har bir kitobni o'qiydi", deb qo'shimcha qildi Devin.

"Men aslida tugatyapman Bobil hoziroq. Siz qachondan beri birga ishlayapsiz? ”

Vendi dioramani javonga qaytardi.

"Boshidan beri. Ishonchim komilki, taqdir bizni birlashtirdi ».

"U bilan uchrashishim mumkinmi?"

"Agar Ibrohim podvaldan chiqsa, hamma narsa mumkin. Bu qish oylarida u eng samarali bo'ladi. Yozuv mashinasi ketayotganini eshitganingizda, u kamdan -kam hollarda to'xtaydi ”.

Ketrin chuqurlikdan avtomat kabi o'q uzishining mexanik tugmalaridan bezovta bo'lmay, choyini ho'pladi.

Devin bir piyola choydan keyin ketishni talab qildi. Mashinaga qaytishda Jenna uydan tashqarida yana bir nechta suratga tushishni to'xtatdi. U qanoatlangach, ichkariga kirdi.

"Nega mashinangiz ishlamayapti?" deb so'radi u. "Issiqlikni yoqing, men muzlayapman."

"Sizningcha, men bu erga kelganimdan beri nima qilyapman?"

Devin o'sha paytda telefonini tekshirdi. "Soat uchda. Mening telefonim hech qanday xizmat ko'rsatmaydi. Kabinaga qo'ng'iroq qilib, ular bizning omonatimizni ushlab qolishlarini bilib olasizmi? ”

"Men uchun ham xizmat yo'q. Biz bu erga kelganimizdan beri ishlamayapti. "

U qo'llarini rulga urdi.

"G'azablanmang. Dvigatelda nima noto'g'ri ekanligini sinab ko'ring. Ko'raman, ular bizga o'z telefonlaridan foydalanishga ruxsat berishadimi? "

Devin kaputni ochdi va Jenna uyiga yugurdi. Vendi javob berdi.

"Yana salom," dedi Jenna. "Telefoningizni ishlata olamizmi? Mashinamizda nimadir noto'g'ri, men hech qanday xizmat ko'rmayapman. "

Vendi Jennani oshxonaga olib bordi.

"Voy, shahar telefoni. Men buvimning uyiga borganimdan beri hech birini ko'rmaganman. "

- Ha, lekin biz kamdan -kam hollarda shaharni tark etamiz. Jenna xo'rlangan va holdan toygan xo'rsinib yubordi. U telefonni qabul qilgichdan oldi, lekin terish ohangi yo'q edi. U beshikni uch marta bosdi, lekin hech narsa. "Telefoningiz ishlamayaptimi?" deb so'radi u.

"Bu erga kirib -chiqadi."

"Bu erda qishda juda o'lik."

"Sizning mashinangiz bormi? Balki bizni boshqa shaharga olib borasan, biz telefon topa olamizmi? ”

"Bizda mashina yo'q va mashinasi bo'lgan kishi allaqachon qishga ketgan."

"Men bu erda boshqa odamlar yashaydimi, deb so'ramoqchi edim, chunki biz hayot belgisini ko'rmadik."

"Kim tark etmagan bo'lsa, u erga kiradi."

Bodrum eshigi ochilib yopildi. Ketrin oshxonaga kirdi.

"Nega, Jenna, men sen va Devin ketdik deb o'yladim."

"Bilaman. Uzr so'rayman. Ba'zi sabablarga ko'ra mashinamiz ishga tushmaydi. Men sizning telefoningizdan foydalanmoqchi edim. "

“Ha! Omad. Biz asosan muzlab qolgan orolda yashaymiz. ”

"Odam, Devin jahli chiqadi."

"Nega u xafa bo'lishi kerak? Biz unchalik yomon emasmiz. ”

"Yo'q, bu siz emas. Biz idishni ijaraga oldik va agar biz oltidan oldin ular bilan bog'lanmasak, biz o'z omonatimizni yo'qotamiz va menimcha, bu mening aybim.

"O'zingizga shunchalik qattiq munosabatda bo'lmang. Bir kuni ba'zi voqealar bizning qo'limizdan kelmasligini bilib olasiz. Agar siz mashinangizni ishga tushira olmasangiz, kechasi shu erda qolishingizni talab qilaman. Biz qarshi emasmiz. ”

Devin ichkariga kirdi. "Men nima bo'lganini bilmayman", deb baqirdi u. "Telefonda omad bormi?"

- Devin, - dedi Ketrin. "Jenna menga sizning rejalaringiz haqida gapirib berdi va men o'zimni dahshatli his qildim, siz bu erda to'xtadingiz va endi ketolmaysiz. Vendi kabinaga qancha depozit qo'yilganini bilsin. Biz buning uchun to'laymiz. Bizda juda ko'p pul bor. "

Ketrin Jennaga qaradi.

"Ehtimol, telefon ertaga ishlaydi", deb davom etdi u. "Bu har doim kiradi va chiqadi. Vendi, mehmon yotoqxonasini yashashga yaroqli qilib oling. Men yana bir oz pastga tushaman. "

Ketrin podvalga qaytdi. Jenna tadqiqotni o'rganib chiqdi, Vendi uning ko'zidan adashgan boladay ergashib, unga yumshoq cho'tkasi va cheksiz savollar berdi. Devin sovuq haroratda mashina bilan kurashdi, lekin mexaniklardan ayrildi. Kech kirganda, u sumkalarini olib ichkariga qaytdi. Vendi va Jenna oshxonada gaplashib kulishardi. Yaxshi ishlatilgan oshxonaning xushbo'y hidi va issiqligi uyni to'ldirdi.

Vendi tarkibini aralashtirib, qozon ustida suzib yurdi. Jenna o'ynab jilmayib Devinga qaradi. Ochiq shisha sharob uning yonidagi stolda.

"Bizda qaynatilgan karamli kolbasa bor", dedi Vendi.

"Umid qilamanki, siz eslatma oldingiz", dedi Devin.

"Retsept sir", deb javob berdi Jenna.

Yozuv mashinasining oq shovqini suhbat orasidagi pauzalarni to'ldirdi.

"U haqiqatan ham to'xtamaydi", dedi Devin.

"Hikoya uni qamrab olganda, bu uning obsesyoniga aylanadi."

- Menga kitob nima haqida ekanligini aytishning iloji bormi? - so'radi Jenna.

"Men bilamanmi, bilmayman. Uning aytishicha, bu qahramonlar nima qilayotganiga bog'liq. Aytmoqchimanki, u yakuniy natija nima bo'lishini biladi, lekin u erga qanday etib borishini hech qachon bilmaydi. ”

Kechki ovqat bo'sh idishlar, so'ngra shirinliklar bilan yakunlandi.

"Vendi, azizim. Kechki ovqat uchun rahmat. U shirin ekan."

"Rahmat, xonim Ketrin. Men bergan retseptlarga amal qilaman ".

"Ha, ha, lekin ovqatni oshxonaga aylantiradigan nozikliklar, xuddi so'zlarni nasrga aylantiradigan nuanslar kabi."

"Bu juda yaxshi edi", dedi Jenna. "Shunday emas edi, Devin."

"Urre. Men yeygan eng yaxshi kolbasa va karam ".

"Azizim, siz oshpazdan ko'ra oshpazsiz."

Vendi minnatdorchilik bilan bosh irg'adi va Ketrin mamnun nafas oldi. "Men uxlash vaqti keldi, deb o'ylayman", deb davom etdi u. "Vendi, mehmonlarimiz o'z xonalarini ko'rishlariga ishonch hosil qiling."

"Mehmondo'stligingiz uchun yana bir bor rahmat", deya qo'shimcha qildi Jenna.

Ketrin nafaqaga chiqdi, ko'p o'tmay Vendi, Devin va Jenna. Vendi zinapoyaning birinchi eshigida to'xtadi.

"Bu erda miss Ketrin uxlaydi", dedi u.

"Faqat Ketrinmi?" Jenna pichirladi.

"U va Abe bitta yotoqxonada uxlamaydimi?" - qo'shib qo'ydi Devin.

Vendi bosh chayqadi. Qo'shni xonada ochiq eshik bor edi. U katta to'shak, eshik yonida oynali oyna va deraza yonidagi stul bilan tor edi.

"Bu mening xonam", deb davom etdi u. "Agar sizga biror narsa kerak bo'lsa, meni ko'rishga keling."

Oldinda kichik oynali tomlar arxipelagiga qaragan ikkita derazali uchinchi xona bor edi.

"Bu erda siz bugun kechasi uxlaysiz", dedi Vendi.

"Buni eshitasizmi?" Devin aytib o'tdi.

Vendi va Jenna eshik oldida turgan tomonga o'girildilar. Ular uning savoliga javob berishini kutishdi.

Jenna jim qoldi va Vendi tomonga qaradi. "Bu degani, biz Ibrohimni ko'rishimiz mumkinmi?"

- Yo'q, - javob berdi Vendi. "Ibrohim yozayotganda pastda qoladi va u doim yozadi."

Vendi ularni yolg'iz qoldirdi. Jenna va Devin o'z xonalariga qaradilar.

"Alohida ko'rpa -to'shaklar", dedi u. "Men rejalashtirgan romantik qochish unchalik emas."

"Oddiy vaqtga xush kelibsiz."

"Siz ularni birlashtirishni xohlaysizmi?"

"Sizningcha, ular bir xonada uxlamaydilar, g'alati?"

"Ha, lekin mening bobom va buvim turmushning so'nggi yigirma yilida alohida xonalarda yashaganlar. Mana, Ibrohim kitoblarini chiqarmay turib, menga u qayerda uxlayotgani muhim emas ».

"Xo'sh, men kichkina bolaning xonasidan foydalanaman. Depozit uchun pulni u sizga berdimi? ”

- Haqiqatan ham, buni hozir so'raysizmi?

"Hey, u taklif qildi. Men shunchaki qiziqib qoldim. "

"Keling, ertaga keyingi shahar qanchalik uzoqligini bilib olaylik. Agar biz u erga bora olsak, biz telefondan foydalanishimiz mumkin, balki kabinani ijaraga olmaganmiz, shuning uchun biz hali ham bitta to'shakda bo'lishimiz mumkin bo'lgan ta'tilga ega bo'lishimiz mumkin. "

Devin kiyimlarini almashtirib, yo'lakka kirib ketdi. Jenna ko'chaga qaradi. Devinning mashinasi ko'cha chiroqining ostiga qo'yilgan edi. U echinib, derazadan devorga qaradi. Uning ustki qismini echib bo'lgach, eshik ochildi. Jenna o'girildi, lekin Vendini ko'rib qo'rqib ketdi.

"Siz bu erda qolmasligingiz kerak", dedi u pichirladi.

- Mening mashinam bor, - davom etdi Vendi.

"Men ilgari mashinangiz bormi, deb so'radim."

"Men hech narsa deya olmadim. U o'rmon chetida to'xtab turadi. Kalitlar ichkarida. O'z narsalaringizni yig'ing. Biz hozir ketishimiz mumkin. ”

Jenna xo'rsinib qo'ydi. "Men charchadim va bugun kechqurun biron joyga borish juda kech. Ertaga ketishimiz mumkin.

Devin kirdi. "Oh, kechirasiz", dedi u.

"Hammasi joyida. Vendi bizga kerak bo'lgan hamma narsaga ega ekanligimizga amin edi ”.

Vendi sekin bosh irg'adi va chiqib ketdi.

“Bu nima haqida edi? U sizga biroz tuyuldi. "

"Xo'sh, biz qo'shimcha tunashimiz mumkin, lekin men ko'rsam bo'ladimi?"

"Siz mutlaq cho'chqasiz. Siz omadlisiz, men cho'chqa go'shtini yaxshi ko'raman. "

Jenna sovuqdan uyg'onib ketdi. U yolg'iz uxlashga odatlanmagan va Devinga qo'shilish uchun to'shakdan chiqib ketgan. Biroq, u to'shakda emas edi va matras sovuq edi.

Uy jim edi, hatto Ibrohim yozuv mashinkasining mexanik idishi ham sokin edi. Jenna derazaga qaradi va mashina endi yo'l chetida emasligini ko'rdi.

Jenna koridor bo'ylab yurdi. Vendining eshigi ochiq, karavoti bo'sh edi. Uyning sukunatidan yerto'laning eshigi yopildi. Jenna peshtaxtaga qaradi, lekin hech kimni topmadi. - Jin ursin, Devin, - dedi u.

Jenna yugurib pastga tushib, podval eshigiga qulog'ini bosdi. U nima qilish kerakligi bilan kurashdi: taqillat, kir, baqir. U kirishni tanladi. Bankirning chirog'i uyning ichki qismini yoritdi. Pastda yasalmagan to'shak qadamlarni qo'ydi. Kichkina murakkab asboblar, mato, qutilar, yog'och va loydan yasalgan dastgoh uzoq devor bilan yuvilgan edi. Oxirgi qadamlari bilan u yozuv mashinasi va yonida bir dasta qog'oz yozilgan yozuv stolini topdi. Bir varaq vagonga yarim yozilgan holda qisilgan.

"Devin," dedi u. "Siz shu yerdamisiz?"

Bodrumdan qochishdan oldin, Jenna yaqinlashib kelayotgan kitobni o'rganishga qaror qildi. U Ketrin skameykada qolgan ikkita dioramaga qaradi. Birinchisi, tepada joylashgan, eng mayda -chuyda qilib yaratilgan, ammo Devinga o'xshab kiyingan, oyoqlari shiftdan osilib turgan odamning ishi. Tomog'i ochilib ketgan qonni yig'ish uchun pastda chelak yotardi. Keyingi quti uyning old tomoniga va ko'chaning chetiga o'xshardi. Qor bilan qoplangan er bo'ylab, izlar va qon izlari ko'chaga olib bordi, lekin u tugallanmagan edi, jasad yo'q edi.

Yozuv mashinasining slaydi, ishdan chiqishi va zarbasi keyingi paragrafga o'tadi. Tez orada yozish boshlandi. U har bir harf varaqqa bosilganda o'qidi:

Jenna, mahbus ruhi unga baqirdi: "Yugur. ”

Jenna zinapoyaga ko'tarilib, qochishdan umidvor bo'lib, podvaldan qochib ketdi. Yozuvchi mashina ertakini aytib berishni davom ettirganda, u eshik oldida to'xtadi. Tadqiqotda sekin harakatlanadigan soya uning diqqatini tortdi. Ko'cha chiroqidan yorug'lik oldingi xonaga sepildi. Tadqiqot markazida Devinning jasadi oyog'idan osilib qoldi. Vaqti-vaqti bilan tomog'idan tomchi tomchi tushdi, chunki uyning yumshoq harakati uning tanasini yonma-yon pishiradigan qozon ustida silkitardi.

Jenna uydan chiqib ketdi, lekin maysazor bo'ylab zinapoyadan qonli izlar ketdi. Ko'chaning o'rtasida, Vendi jasadi ko'chada cho'kkalab yotardi. DISLOYAL so'zi qorda qon bilan yozilgan. Jenna uydan oshxonadagi eshikka yugurdi va bu uyning orqa tomoniga olib keldi. U Vendi aytgan mashinani topishi mumkin edi.

U qor tepaliklari bo'ylab o'rmon tomon qadam tashladi. Oyoqlari va tanasi shu qadar muzlab qolgan ediki, u endi sovuqni sezmadi. Muzlagan oy nuri dunyoni qamrab oldi. Daraxtlarning suyak qo'llari unga intizorlik bilan va intizorlik bilan etib bordi. Qachonki, soyaning ichidan mash'ala nuri yonib tursa, ortidan ikkinchisi paydo bo'ladi. Qorong'ilikdan kiyingan figuralar paydo bo'ldi, ularning yuzlari xira edi.

"Qishlar uzoq, lekin bizning uylarimiz tanani va qonni ziyofat qilish bilan mustahkam bo'lib qoladi!"

Ortidan jamoa ovozi eshitildi.

"Va ruh bizni oziqlantiradi", - deb qarshi chiqdi guruh.

Engil tukli qor yog'a boshladi.

"Yig'lama, azizim. Bu shunday bo'lishi kerakki, bizning hayotimiz taqdirning qo'li bilan abadiy boshqariladi. ”

Eski uyning eshigi taqilladi. Qish muzlatilgan hujumini davom ettirdi. Ko'chada 1998 yil qizil Toyota Corolla rusumli avtomashina turardi. Eshik ochilganda, ko'zlari quvnoq, qora sochli qiz quvonch bilan sakrab tushdi. U do'sti Alliga qaradi.

"Bilaman, bu g'alati tuyulishi mumkin, lekin bu Ibrohim Grabovskiyning uyimi?"

Ketrin zinadan tushdi.

"Kim eshik oldida?" deb so'radi u.

"Hech kim. Men ularga faqat ketishni aytgandim ».

- Bema'nilik, Jenna. Hech kim hech kim emas. Ularga ruxsat bering. Bilasizmi, men mehmonlarni yaxshi ko'raman. "

Uchchalamiz Mainbdagi Starbucksda uchrashamiz: men, u va uning eri. Hisoblagichning oxirida ular stulga o'tirganini ko'rsam, men ular ekanligini bilaman. U boylik havosida baland va biznesda muvaffaqiyat qozonadi, lekin sochlari kulrang. Uning yonida u sochlari porloq va terisi silliq bo'lgan aerobika bo'yicha kichik o'qituvchiga o'xshaydi. U befarq odamga o'xshab turadigan tor ko'ylak kiygan. Uning sandallari menga uning uzun barmoqlari va yaltiroq pushti pedikyurasini ko'rsatadi. Erining tizzasi hukm qiladiki, nima uchun ular ko'pincha bu holatda turg'un bo'lishidan boshqa sababini aytish qiyin.

Men birinchi navbatda qahvamga buyurtma beraman. Ko'ryapmanki, ular allaqachon ichgan. Devid, erining ismi shunday, u er -xotin espressoni tortdi, stolda bo'sh stakanga qarab baho berdi va uning krujkasida Betning oxirgi latti ko'rinadi. Men odatdagidek karamel va past ko'pikli ikki martali kapuchino olaman. Past ko'pik. Men deyarli kulaman. Tasavvur qiling, shuning uchun biz bu erdamiz.

Men buni tirikchilik yoki boshqa maqsadlar uchun qilyapman. Har kuni chashka ichib urish-naqd pulsiz va xijolat bo'lgan kollej bolalarining o'yin-kulgi. Men Escalade haydab, Hugo Bossda kiyinaman va Tod's loferlarini kiyaman. Men polistirol turi emasman. Men professional odamman. Men oilaliman. Men o'z shahrimdagi "Sug'urtalovchilar gildiyasi" bo'limini boshqaraman, men o'zimni qiyin ish bilan bandman va hamma meni juda zo'r odam deb o'ylaydi. Xotinimning shikoyat qiladigan hech narsasi yo'q. U yarim vaqtda ishxonada ishlaydi, qolgan vaqtda esa yuzini bug'lab, itlar bilan yuradi va o'zini yaxshi tutadi. Biz siz tashvishlantiradigan odamlar emasmiz. Biz kechki ovqat uchun siz so'ragan odammiz.

Bu kechki ovqatlardan birida birinchi bo'lib paydo bo'ldi. Yaxshi er -xotin, Deyrid va Frank, bizning ko'p yillar davomida do'st bo'lgan do'stlarimiz, bizni Shukrona kuni uchun mehmon qilishdi. Biz ovqatlanish qismiga etib keldik, odamlar, ehtimol, kaliforniyalik keksa odamni bir oz mast qilib, stakan ko'tarib, nima bo'lganini biladigan odamlarga nima uchun minnatdor bo'lishlarini aytishardi. Bizda stol atrofida boshqalardan taxmin qilinadigan etarlicha boshlanuvchilar bor edi. Mark Xanson, yangi Chevy -ni sotib olgani uchun bayram bonusidan minnatdor ekanini aytdi va kim ishlash uchun piyoda yurishni xohladi? Bunda biroz kulgi bo'ldi, asosan uning hisobidan, lekin hech kim aytmadi. Uning rafiqasi Sharlotta oilasi va uyi uchun minnatdor edi, ularning ikkita qizi bor edi va ulardan biri Daun sindromi bilan og'rigan. Agar kimdir ulardan qanday ketayotganini so'rasa, kechasi ko'z yosh to'kish ular uchun kurashdir. Noziklik ko'z yoshlari Charlotte ularni chaqiradi, garchi u umrini shu darajada qolish uchun o'tkazsa.

Yaxshiyamki, Frank o'rnidan turdi, stolning chetini ushlab oldi va bo'shliqlarni ishdan bo'shatayotganidan minnatdorligini aytadi, chunki u tagliklarini almashtirib, keksalarni Kichik Ligaga haydash o'rniga yakshanba kuni ertalab uxlab qoladi. uning ichak atrofi yiliga bir -ikki dyuymga o'sadi. Uning aytishicha, Deyrid bilan oyiga bir marta vannaning chetida o'tirishga to'g'ri keladi. U sharobni stakanidan ko'ylagiga tashladi va zarb bilan o'tirdi. Siz bilgan keyingi narsa, Deidre o'rnidan turib, Xudoga shukur, u topgan veb -saytida chaqaloqning oqibatlari haqida qayg'urmasdan, unga yaxshi kayfiyat bag'ishlaydigan odamlar ro'yxati keltirilgan. Bu uni jim qildi.

Biz bu haqda uyga ketayotganda mashinada gaplashdik, rafiqam va men, siz kutgandek. Bu biz yillar davomida tanish bo'lgan juftlik edi. Ehtimol, men Frankni aliment to'lashi uchun ularning sug'urta polisini ochib berishimdan bir necha kun yoki ko'p hafta o'tar edi. Xotinim Judi juda hayratda qoldi. U ishonmasligini aytdi va siz odamlarni bilasiz deb o'ylaganingizda. U biroz tumanli ko'zga o'xshardi, chunki biz qat'iyatli edik, chunki biz bolalar haqidagi fikrni ortda qoldirmaganimizga ancha vaqt bo'ldi. Xudo bizning hamkorligimizni xohlamaganiga rozi bo'ldik. Judi bilan men gaplashayotganda, men Deyrning chehrasi haqida o'ylashni davom ettirdim: birdaniga qoniqish va ochlik va men nomini aytolmagan boshqa narsa.

Shunday qilib, u ikki haftadan so'ng ofisga kelganida, men uning uchun sug'urta ishini qildim va undan tez -tez tashrif buyuradigan veb -sayt haqida iloji boricha bemalol so'radim. U menga xohlagan narsani berdi, men esa uni shkafga qarshi, xohlagan narsani berdim, hamma narsa chayqalib, chayqalib ketdi, asosan u xotinimga nima so'raganimni aytmasligi uchun, balki pishgani uchun. olxo'ri ko'rinishini, u erda shukronalik bayramida shahvat bilan porladi.

Va shunday davom etdi. Bog'lanishni kutish bilan bog'liq bir oz yoqimsiz narsa bor edi, lekin bunga arziydi va keyin ketishim kerak edi, hech qanday savol yo'q. Ayollar meni yo'limda silkitib qo'yishdi. Biroz vaqt o'tgach, sport zalida yaxshi mashg'ulot o'tkazgandek bo'ldim va men har doimgidek, bu boshqa har qanday narsaga o'xshab, jismoniy ehtiyoj deb o'ylardim, agar nima demoqchi ekanimni bilsangiz, nima uchun bu bilan shug'ullanish kerak. Deidre bu harakatga juda e'tibor qaratdi, keyin esa hamma biznes. U mening profilimni saytda o'rnatgan, lekin boshqa ayollar haqida hech qachon gapirmagan. Biz shunchaki zip -up ochdik va kunlarimizni davom ettirdik. Meni boshqalar bilan ham shunday qilishga undagan paytlar bo'lishi mumkin. Balki men ohangni qo'ygandim va ular bunga qo'shilishdi. Ochig'ini aytganda, nega hamma baxtli bo'lsa, bu haqda to'xtalish kerak.

Men Starbucksga bordim va ikkalasi ham o'sha erda edi. Bu er birinchi marta jinoyatga qo'l urgani emas. Bu mening eng sevimli ishim emas edi, lekin men uning xonimga zarba beraman deb o'ylayman, shuning uchun u nima qilish kerak deb o'ylasa. Men erlar bilan bir necha bor uchrashganimda, ular menga juda mos bo'lgan paytda, g'oyib bo'lishdi, chunki kim xonada bunday odamni xohlaydi? Va bu ularning xotinlarini o'zlari olgan narsadan zavqlanishiga imkon berdi. Tez orada ular uchun logistika, homiladorlik testlari va sayt ma'murining uyushmani yopish haqidagi eslatmasi bo'ladi. Ish tugadi, davom etish vaqti keldi. Menga yaxshi mos keladi.

Ammo u o'sha erda edi va tarixan erlarning bir nechta savollari bor edi. Ular saytdan qonuniyliklar, ushlab turish, tibbiy sug'urta va sizda nima bo'lmasligi uchun foydalanmoqdalar. Va sizning yoningizda siz minimal shovqinni xohlaysiz. You don’t want to bring a child into the world, have nothing to do with it, and then have it turn up when it’s eighteen asking about what you’ve amounted to and what this means about who they really are and why you don’t care about any of it. I’m comfortable with where I am. I’ve talked you through that already. Wife, house, a little money, some fucking and being left to enjoy your liberty. But anyway, the husbands want no strings. They’re the ones who want to be the daddy. Another one would get in the way. But they still have questions, so you humour them. The sooner you do that, the sooner you can get to the point. And Beth, without wishing to offend, is a point I’m pretty keen to get to.

The husband’s jittery from his espresso. The knee jigging keeps up. He lets me know up front, he’s doing this for Beth. She’s desperate for a child. I enjoy my coffee and wait for the talk to be over. I glance at her at this point and it’s true she looks a little haunted. But the wives, in my experience, might be thinking of a child before I get there, but then I arrive and they get focused pretty quickly on the next hour and a half. They get into it with a reliability that is gratifying. There are a few things that gratify that way. There’s not a whole lot in the insurance world that’s new to me, and I’ve been at the game for a while now. But there’s a quality in a pile of completed and filed applications at the end of the week that makes me feel pretty satisfied, since you ask. There’s a commission coming and everyone’s content, and I appreciate that the way I feel good about there being a little give in my waistband even after a long lunch. It’s like being one of the few at your high school reunion that still has his hair and a wife you wouldn’t turn away on a cold night. You know what I mean.

So when this guy starts with the questioning, I’m clear that it’ll be over soon and Beth and I can move on to the hotel upstairs for the business end of the deal. She’s sitting cross legged on the bar stool examining her manicure and I’m confident she’s waiting for this bit to be over too.

“You don’t look much like you went to Harvard,” David says. “What was your year?”

I’m wearing a good suit and I’ve got good posture and I’m pretty pissed by this, so I say, “Class of ’95, buddy. Didn’t see you there.”

“I was at Yale,” he says, like I give a shit. And he says it in this kind of way that makes you feel you’re already judged and found wanting. But I’m about to fuck his wife so I give him the benefit for a minute. Meanwhile I store away the Harvard thing. I don’t know what else Deidre wrote on that site. Who cares, right? It gets me in the door. But it’s handy to know from time to time, particularly when the husbands come out fighting.

“And you have no children of your own?” u aytdi.

“No, ironic—isn’t that what you Yale grads say?” I give him a smile. “The wife’s not able,” I say. Not that it’s his business but he should know it’s not me or else Beth and I won’t get to the money shot.

“Listen, buddy,” I say to him. I’m getting impatient now and Beth’s started to stare across the coffee shop like this isn’t anything to do with her. She’s looking far away and a little upset and it’s an effort getting past that later. I reach into my jacket. I know how to hold it so the label shows, and the lining flashes to its best advantage. Cerise satin, this one, on grey flannel. Boss makes them just so. And I hand him a business card. It gives him the low down on my business and the good neighbourhood I live in. Give him some comfort, I think. I’m all about transparency. The Harvard thing and whatever IQ Deidre’s stuffed out into cyberworld just don’t have anything to do with success, at the end of the day.

“I get results,” I say to him. “Never had an unsatisfied customer.” And I smile the way you do when you just know it’ll go your way.

Just then he gets all courteous. He looks closely at my card and raises his eyebrows. He’s impressed. He files it in his breast pocket and pats it through his jacket.

“Gabe,” he says, “thank you.” Very earnest he is, and I enjoy that. So when he says he needs just a little more time, that he and Beth have to talk—at this, she looks at him and squeezes his hand—I think well, what’s the hurry? They’ll be back soon enough. He gives me one of those crushing Yalean handshakes and she puts a perfumed kiss on my cheek and we agree to meet up again once they’ve had that talk.

The next week I’m in the office. I’m pretty relaxed after a decent hook up, and there’s a knock on the door. There’s a bailiff there, a squat man that smells like a row of sneakers in the locker room at the Y and he starts barking about fraud and Chapter 7. He hands over one of those business cards that’s like a high class wedding invitation. I have just enough time to reflect that the only person I’ve met lately who’d wield a card like that is David before the bailiff’s crew start confiscating filing cabinets and the breakfront Judy bought me for our fifteenth anniversary. I can see that out in the reception area—it’s not Judy’s day today—the secretary’s already reaching for her handbag and jacket.

I’m feeling a lot of rage and humiliation so that I can hardly drive, but somehow I’ve got to get home. On I-95 it feels like if I go fast enough I can stop the asteroid that’s about to fall on my house, but as soon as I pull into the driveway and turn off the engine, I know. Not much is different, but there’s one blind drawn in the window of the den and when I get to the front door I can hear the clink of the chain out back where Snowflake must be sniffing around. If she’s not in her basket while Judy’s doing the washing up and singing, if Snowflake’s not sitting on my wife’s knee while she watches Opra, if she isn’t inside there’ll be no comfort for her. For Judy, my Judy, who stood up on Thanksgiving and gave God thanks that if she couldn’t have the family of her dreams, she had Gabe, the man of her dreams, and a happy, happy home.

The 2004 Skipping Stones Honor Awards
Educational, Entertaining & Exceptional!

Are you searching for authentic, multicultural books? Do you enjoy exploring the natural world through a good book? The 2004 Skipping Stones Honor Award winners cultivate an awareness of our multicultural and natural world without perpetuating stereotypes and biases. They encourage positive role models, promote cooperation, nonviolence and appreciation of nature. These books and the educational video also offer a great variety of learning experiences for students and teachers, children and parents. Our thanks to over 20 reviewers-teachers, students, parents, librarians, interns and board members-who helped with the selection process.

Reviews appear in the summer issue (pages 29 - 35).

Xush kelibsiz! Have you already started dreaming about your summer vacation? What do you want to do this summer? While I hear some kids say, "Summer. what a bore. nothing exciting to do," there are many simple ways to make it extraordinary!

In our daily life, for the most part, we live and feel separated from nature and the outdoors. How can we feel that we belong in nature? As a kid, I remember taking morning walks with my father, uncle or brothers. We'd enjoy ripe mangoes, tamarind or other tropical fruits as we walked past those trees. Even now, as an adult, I love to take early morning strolls. Today, while I was enjoying the morning mist, what a pleasure it was to see two beautiful songbirds perched on the crowns of two nearby evergreens, welcoming the new day with their melodious chirps!

As we spend more time getting to know the woods and outdoors, we no longer feel afraid of those bugs, slugs and other critters that are simply minding their daily business. Nature walks, hikes or back country camping with a family member and a friend will help you feel at home in the great outdoors. An afternoon in the woods will offer more food for your soul than sitting in front of a computer or video screen. Pay attention to what you smell, hear, see and feel as you walk, without drifting in daydreams.

Do you have a garden? Yo'q? Then try window-sill, patio or roof-top gardens. Use garden compost and good potting soil in big planters to grow your favorite flowers, herbs, tomatoes and other vegetable plants. Eat plenty of garden-fresh salads and seasonal fruits like watermelon, berries and peaches when available. Watering a garden, chopping vegetables, making pizza from scratch with Mom or Dad. there are many ways to bring joy into our summer.

Many great literary works wait silently and patiently to be held in our hands. Look for the latest multicultural and nature books on pages 29-35. As a student, I immersed myself in historical and spiritual books or (auto)biographies of people who have made our world better. I invite you to dig out the classics by Thoreau, Rachel Carson, Mahatma Gandhi, Herman Hesse, Khalil Gibran or Rumi.

As we learn about these visionaries, we see how they were able to make changes in their own lives. Like them, let's discover in our own life journey that the world does not revolve around us. While we must know that we're special, it's equally important for us to realize that everyone else is also very special, with their own feelings and values. Our mind works like a parachute, only when it is open! (Let us be open respectful and receptive of other ideas and ways.)

Summer is also a great time to get involved in community projects-maintaining nature trails, working in soup kitchens, helping the disabled or visiting a nursing home for the elderly. Some Sundays, I volunteer at the county juvenile detention center talking with youth. Difficulties or challenges that we face working with others do have a purpose in our life-to help us learn and grow. When we volunteer with humility and compassion, it feels really good inside. Now, that's something worth trying this summer!

  • Explore! Nature walks, hikes or backpacking with groups like Nearby Nature, Obsidians or A.T. C.
  • Go camping with a family member and a friend.
  • Try a windowsill, patio or roof-top garden.
  • Visit local farms, get U-pick produce or fresh vegetables at the farmers' market eat fresh fruits, greens and raw vegetables as often as you can.
  • Observe an hour or two of silence each day.
  • Try not to gossip or talk behind someone's back.
  • Make friends with kids who are different from you.
  • Take mindful walks, paying close attention to what you smell, hear, see and feel as you walk practice walking meditation, without drifting in daydreams.
  • Ask a librarian for book recommendations.
  • Volunteer for community projects (work on nature trails, soup kitchens, etc.) in your neighborhood.
  • Try something new! arts, musical instruments.

Understanding our true nature and practicing selfless love and compassion for all is the core of the One World ideal that saints of many faiths practice and teach. As we learn it, we realize we are all connected and our true nature is unconditional love.

We feel useful, wanted and happy when we treat friends, family and strangers with kindness, when we help people in their hour of need. What if we seek and work for the well-being of all, for the greater good this summer? Loka Samasta Sukhino Bhavatu-May all beings be content!

When My Dad and I Go Camping

When my dad and I go camping at one of Wisconsin's State Forests, we go hiking. Once, we went hiking on the biggest trail in our park. It was enjoyable because we heard the sounds of nature and could glimpse out onto the lake.

When my dad and I go camping, we rent bikes. The trail is twelve miles long, but we only go four because we get tired-the steep hills wear us out. Once we saw three deer drinking out of a pond. There was a mama and two baby deer. They were adorable.

When my dad and I go camping, we go swimming in the lake. At the lake, I feel like I'm at the beach because there is sand all around the lake. The water is cold like Lake Michigan, and you have to step in slowly. When my dad and I go camping, we read books together-we grab a picnic table by the lake and read. On our last few trips, we have taken the Harry Potter series. I like reading with my dad because we like the same kinds of books. When my dad and I go camping, we cook: breakfast, lunch and dinner. We prepare hamburgers, hot dogs, and noodles. I like to help my dad cook because I like cooking myself.

When my dad and I go camping, we sit by the fire and talk about school, funny things, life, boats and business stuff. While we sit there, we look up at the stars. We just sit in our chairs and stare. The stars there are so different: They are much clearer. Sometimes, our marshmallows turn out burnt, but typically, they turn to just right.

When my dad and I go camping, we stay up late, until 11 pm. Before then, we hear yelling and playing music. If my mom were there, we would be in bed sooo much earlier. When my dad and I go camping at Wisconsin's State Forests, we have GREAT time!

I could feel the rhythmic pounding of Geronimo's hooves underneath me. We rounded the corner and Geronimo sped up to a smooth canter. He had gotten the right lead this time. There had been many times when he'd gotten the wrong lead, or had cantered with the wrong foot in front. I have tried to explain to him that you have to start with the outside leg forward when doing the trot to canter transitions. He'll learn one of these days. "Now look at the jump and anticipate that he'll stay at this speed," Sarah yelled from the center of the arena. She had been my riding instructor for the past two years.

I looked at the jump. It was a vertical. A long, white pole resting on two jump cups. It was around two feet, higher than I had ever jumped before. I prayed that he wouldn't refuse-Jumping is very difficult and scary if your horse doesn't know what he is doing. But Geronimo never hesitated for a second as he took off through the air. Quick release, hands up, heels down, hands and face up his neck. We landed gracefully and evenly on the other side.

Some people don't appreciate the long years of sweat and hard work that equestrians pay for a good fifteen minutes in the show ring. It had taken me two years to get to this point and I was loving every minute of it.

"That was good!" Sarah yelled with a smile.

I slowed Geronimo down to a trot, then a walk. I led him to the center where Sarah was, and dismounted.

"You did well today," Sarah said.

"It was all Geronimo," I replied.

I walked Geronimo out to the crossties, took off his bridle and put on his halter. He stood perfectly still as I untacked him and gave him a good brushing. I stopped for a second to admire him-he really was a beautiful animal. Some commented that he was too short and fat for jumping. I thought he looked just as beautiful as a pricey Grand Prix jumper. He was an Appaloosa, with spots to spare. Grey, black and white hairs stuck out in all directions, giving him a scruffy look. His mane stood straight up, making a perfect mohawk on top of his head. Overall, he was quite a sight, one to be laughed at and loved at the same time.

After grooming and picking his feet, I led him back to his stall. He began munching on a mouthful of hay, only stopping momentarily to watch me go.

Development and filming Edit

Season 21 was broadcast during the 2012 fall season on CBS. [7] It spanned a little over 25,000 miles (40,000 km) of travel to three continents and nine countries including China, Indonesia, Bangladesh, Turkey, [8] and the Netherlands, which hosted a Switchback task. [9] [10]

This season introduced the "Double Your Money" prize for the team who won the first leg, making them eligible to win a total of $2 million if they also won the final leg. Only six teams in the previous twenty seasons of The Amazing Race had ever won both the first and final legs. Elise Doganieri, co-executive producer for the show, called the larger potential prize "a real game-changer". While teams reacted with excitement at the larger prize, Doganieri hoped that if it was won, the additional prize money would be used for "something wonderful" such as supporting charitable medical research. [11] Abbie Ginsberg and Ryan Danz, the winners of the Double Your Money prize, were eliminated from the competition at the conclusion of the ninth leg, after being U-Turned by Jaymes & James.

In Leg 3, Caitlin & Brittany were seen taken in the wrong direction of the Pit Stop, but in a post-elimination interview they stated that they actually knew where the Pit Stop was and were coming back to the Pit Stop after "backtracking" to retrieve a missing clue. [12] The leg featured the series' first-ever Blind Double U-Turn, where two teams could U-Turn another team, and whichever team used the U-Turn could remain anonymous. It was a combination of components of the U-Turn of previous seasons: Double U-Turn combining with Blind U-Turn.

Although contestants are typically forbidden contact with known family and friends during the filming (except where such contact is part of a task), James LoMenzo was shown video chatting with his wife during the fourth Pit Stop to receive an update on his father's medical condition.

Bangladeshi model Rumana Malik Munmun appeared as the Pit Stop greeter during Leg 5. [13]

On Leg 7 in Moscow, prior to a task, James & Abba had left their bags, including the latter's passport, in a waiting gypsy cab, but the cab had driven off with their bags while they performed the task. They continued the leg, but before they could check in, they were told they had to try to find Abba's passport to continue the race. Ultimately, they ended the leg in last place, learning it was a non-elimination leg, but if they were required to leave the country in a subsequent leg, they would be automatically disqualified. The entirety of the next leg remained in Russia, but they ended up in last after spending time again searching for the passport and were eliminated. As the production continued, the two had to secure an exit visa for Abba in lieu of a valid passport. According to Abba, the events of these legs occurred on the Friday and Saturday prior to a major Russian holiday, and it became difficult to work through the limited bureaucracy to do this. The two were fortunate enough that Abba's prior fame was recognized by an employee at the U.S. Embassy, and they were able to secure the visa in time to fly back to the United States on the day prior to the finale.

  1. ^ Gary & Will Blind U-Turned Rob & Kelley however, they had already passed the U-Turn point and were therefore unaffected by it.
  2. ^ In an unaired scene, Caitlin & Brittany initially arrived 6th, but had missed the clue at the U-Turn, having found Pit Stop by chance. They had to backtrack to the U-Turn to retrieve their clue. During this time, Natalie & Nadiya, Rob & Kelley, and Gary & Will checked in, dropping Caitlin & Brittany to last place and resulting in their elimination. [12]
  3. ^ Rob & Kelley initially arrived 4th, but took a boat directly to the Pit Stop instead of to Swarighat, as instructed in their clue. They had to backtrack to their boat and take the proper route. Josh & Brent checked in during this time, dropping Rob & Kelley to 5th.
  4. ^ James & Abba initially arrived 4th, but were not allowed to check in because Abba's passport was amongst the items stolen by their cab driver during the Roadblock. As they tried to retrieve the passport, Abbie & Ryan and Josh & Brent checked in during this time, dropping James & Abba to last place. However, Leg 7 was a non-elimination leg and they were allowed to keep racing until they came to a point where they would need to produce their passports for international travel.
  5. ^ In Leg 7, Josh & Brent were unable to complete either Detour before the sites for both Detour options closed for the day. They were issued a 4-hour penalty, which was assessed at the start of Leg 8.
  6. ^ ab Natalie & Nadiya used the Express Pass to bypass the Roadblock in Leg 8. The official website states that Natalie elected to perform the Roadblock this is reflected in the total Roadblock count. [29]
  7. ^ As they spent much of the leg trying to retrieve Abba's passport or acquire a new one, James & Abba were only shown retrieving the Speed Bump clue and traveling to the task before arriving at the Pit Stop for elimination. On the official website, Abba disclosed that he was able to complete the Roadblock, but they did not perform the Detour as they were too far behind the other teams and were instructed to go directly to the Pit Stop for elimination. [29][30]
  8. ^ Trey & Lexi U-Turned Jaymes & James however, they had already passed the U-Turn point and were therefore unaffected by it.
