Directions:
Years ago when I was a young boy, my younger brother, the family dog and I were rambling the hills and fields of Clay County, Kentucky. We were going through this cow pasture when we came upon this odd looking coil of metal in a briar patch. We took it home with us. Dad and Mom weren't home. We were playing with it in the little stream that ran through our barn lot. When a neighbor came by, he said, "Boys, where did you get my worm?" We told him that we found it in our great uncle's cow pasture. He told us to take it to the chop block and cut it in two, about every six inches. We were afraid it would ruin the ax. But he said, "No, it's copper, it won't hurt the ax."

We would chop it and then finish by twisting it on in two. The neighbors had already told us to take it back where we found it. So we took the pieces back to the pasture field, but not where we found it. We threw it in some thick sage grass.

A few weeks went by before we told anyone. We then told our older brothers. That was a mistake. Because later one of them and I got into a fight, and he told our mom about the worm. She told our dad. He made my younger brother and me go get the pieces. We got a whipping. Our uncle died some time later without knowing what happened to his still worm.

A few years later our family moved from Clay County and Dad gave the pieces of the still worm to our aunt.
