For a very scientific guy, Joan thought it a bit strange that her Dad would hire a witch, but this diviner had come highly recommended. She and her siblings gathered around to watch, but stood out of the way of the witch who was wearing attire, not at all like that worn by Halloween witches. It was quite peculiar, to her way of thinking, that the witch was a man and had an unassuming name of Sam.
After Sam removed a copper rod from the back of his pickup, he began walking slowly back and forth over the portion of land indicated by her Dad. As he held the rod horizontally, straight out from his waistline which was completely hidden by his bibbed overalls, suddenly the rod turned toward the ground. "There is water for your well down below," said Sam somewhat smugly, not sounding in the least like a witch.
