Journel entry for South Dekota

It was a hot, hot, hot day in South Dakota. Gramps saw the Missouri river so he decided to pull in. We took of our clothes and jumped into the cold paradise river. Once we were in, we saw some guy come by. He was holding a brownie knife. He said "This is private property" in a twangy accent, and gramps replied "This here's a river. I never heard of no river being private property." All of a sudden Gram squealed and pulled up a water moccasin! She asked " It's a poisonous one isn't it?" Grams replied " Sure ye it is" We carried Gram out of the water and gramps asked the guy if we could use his brownie knife to cut a slit in grams skin where she got bit by the poisonous creature. He said he could do it and then sucked the blood from grams skin and spit it back out. We asked him to point us to the nearest hospital and he came with us all the way there pointing directions while sucking and spitting out her poisoned blood. Once we got to the hospital the doctors did a special treatment on her leg and she had to stay the night there. I gave the guy 50$ and said that's all the cash he has and that Gramps would come out himself but he had to keep an eye on gram.
