Building Background – Tall Tales Sue Ellen Succotash was the fastest woman in the state of Virginia. Everyone for miles around knew sue Ellen and loved to talk about her amazing races. Now one day sue Ellen ran from Virginia all the way to Texas to visit her great friend Sam Shard. Sam was a farmer. When Sue Ellen got to Sam’s farm, she noticed that crops were dying and the animals looked sick. “Sammy boy. What’s going on? ” Sue Ellen asked. “Well, ” Sam answered. “ I can’t get any water to my crops, so they aren’t doing well. And I can’t feed the animals because I have no crops. ” “That sounds like a doozy, my friend. ” Sue Ellen said. “Let’s see what we can do about this. ” Sam and Sue Ellen walked around Sam’s farm, inspecting the land talking about what they could do. That’s when Sue Ellen came up with an idea. She told Sam to stand by the water spigot. She handed him some buckets and told him to keep filling them with water until she told him to stop. Sam did as sue Ellen asked. Sue Ellen took off running from one end of the farm to the other and back again. In five minutes she had watered the entire field with hundreds of buckets of water to make the crops grow and told Sam to stop. “Gee, Sue Ellen. I don’t know what to say. Thanks for your help. I can see my crops growing already? ” “Any time. That’s what friends are for, ” Sue Ellen said. “Well, I should be off. ” And with that, Sue Ellen ran back to virginia.
