A couple of months ago Louie and Sara decided they want about twenty babies. When the babies were available they needed someone to deliver them. So they asked their neighbor Harvey Miller if he could deliver their babies? Harvey thought he could although he wasn't all that experienced. After all he is a retired preacher and not a doctor. But nevertheless Harvey decided he could do such a thing and took off for Wal-Mart, picked up the baby dolls and delivered them safely into Louie and Sara's outstretched arms. The babies thrived and did well under Sara's loving care. And today they sat outside sunning themselves in a Yard Sale and watched the world go by.
