Once the Hutchinson family was chosen by the black dot, Tessie’s attitude towards the occasion changed. She became agitated and insisted on, “[starting] over,” (paragraph 62) to lessen her chances of winning. In fact, she suggested something most mothers would scorn her for--adding her daughter and son-in-law, Eva and Don, so they could, “take their chance.” (paragraph 51) Finally, the winner of the lottery was announced, and it was Tessie. Her attitude changed again from slightly agitated to furious and scared as she screamed, “It isn’t fair, it isn’t right!” (paragraph 81)

While reading the story you can image the time period even though it’s not stated, just the description of the ladies following in the men with the children gives you an idea of the time period, I would guess early 1800’s. The story gives you a description of the day on June 27th but the reader can picture the rest just by reading the details in the story. The story also gives great background information on how the people were raised. They show this by saying the lottery has been taking place for seventy-seven years by referring to an older man who took part in it for this time

I was left there by her for a month it was hopeless I just stopped looking unable to do anything, imagine my surprise when I see Mrs. Price holding me and tossing me around asking “Who’s sweater is this?” I thought my owner, Phyllis Lopez would say that I belonged to her. But to my surprise, she, along with everyone else said “Not mine” “How rude” I thought to myself. Then that awfully mean girl Sylvia Saldivar said "I think it belongs to Rachel." which it wasn't, and if that wasn't bad enough Mrs. Price, who I’m convinced is worse than Sylvia Saldivar believes her and plops me on Rachels desk. She looks down at me and tries to make words but all I hear is no, I don’t, that’s not but finally, she manages to say “Not mine”. Mrs. Price ignores
Helene has taken ill Clémence, and although healers are attending to her needs, I cannot help but still be left with this anxiety ... My own Mother and sister have not cared to have taken the time to write me with this information, and while you truly have my thanks for making me aware of this situation, I am still left to wonder why.
Hola Diana, hope it's not too hot over there for you. That story about the baby dolphin is terrible, yet another tale of how stupid and uncaring people can be. That series with Chris Packham was on here not too long ago, Next time you watch it see what year it was made, we've had 2 series of it I think. He presents winter watch , spring watch and autumn watch with 2 other presenters, they put cameras next to bird's nests and badger sets to see how they all live and feed their young, it's a really good programme. I'll post this bit while I can, next part after I've had my tea.
Amy, for as long as she could remember, always loved going to bookstores. Looking at all those shelves full of books she had yet to read and experience the stories written within, gave her sense of calm and excitement she could not achieve any other way. When she was reading, she felt as if she was being taken into another world, another universe, where she could be herself without the dreading fear of society judging her every move. She felt happy. Happy and not alone. But she knew that feeling would not last. It never did.
We were sitting on the back patio when we heard the familiar rumble of our gardener’s truck. Standing, my husband and I greeted Steven as he entered through the back gate. He waved, and we exchanged a few words about what needed attention. He noticed things about our garden that I would have never seen. As he started working, I sat down and watched him. He was by no means a young man. I would have put him in his mid-fifties. He was very tan, and had dark brown hair, but his eyes were greener than the grass he was watering. I watched, amazed, as he made his way carefully throughout the garden, checking each and every plant. It was clear to me that he loved what he was doing.
