Babe Meets Bessie
Babe the Blue Ox was a big help around Paul Bunyan’s logging camp. He could pull anything that had two ends, so Paul would use him to make curved roads straight. By the time Babe had pulled all of the turns out of all the roads around the logging camp, there was twenty miles of extra road left over. So Paul rolled them up and used them for new roads into new timberland.
Paul also used Babe the Blue Ox to pull the heavy tank wagon that was used to cover the lumber roads with ice in the winter. Babe pulled the wagon every year until one day when the tank got a leak that went south and became the Mississippi River. After that, Babe only pulled logs down the road. Babe loved the winter so he hated working in the summer, so Paul had to paint all the roads white after the snow melted so that Babe would keep working.
When Babe the Blue Ox was pulling a wagon full of logs down the white painted road he was usually dreaming of the time when the winter would feel cold again and the logs would slide easier on the “ice”. One day when he was working he looked over the top of a mountain and caught a glimpse of a pretty yellow calf eating grass in a field.
He stopped, got out of his harness, and stepped over the mountain to introduce himself. It was love at first sight and Paul had to stop everything to buy Bessie the Yellow Cow from the farmer before Babe would start working again.
